Crafts & Drafts NC
Crafts & Drafts NC is a one of a kind bar and bottle shop, coming late Summer 2019 to Durham, NC. We will sell pre-assembled craft kits whose patterns and options will change on regular and seasonal basis. We will also serve beer, wine, and pre-packaged food, making it a one-stop-shop for a great night out with friends, dates, or families alike!
We work a little different than most crafting places in that we are as hands on or hands off as you want us to be. Come in, buy a drink and a craft kit, and use the helpful instructions included with your kit to create something awesome. Need help? Tap on one of the touch lights at the table and we’ll be right over to help you through whatever you’re stuck on.
Our Mission and Values
The overall mission of Crafts & Drafts NC is to bring communities together through creative exploration and continuous learning. We believe that everyone can learn new skills and get crafty, no matter their level of experience when they walk through the door. We believe in making crafting a fun experience that can be done in a relaxed, ‘come as you are’ atmosphere, and we’ll never stray from that as long as we’re in business.
Crafts & Drafts NC is the brainchild and passion project of Virginia George, with the unending support and ‘silent partnership’ of her awesome husband, Jim George (the copywriter here is obviously a little biased :-P ). Virginia dreamt of starting her own business one day, and while there were multiple ideas on the table, creating a crafting bar was one of the top contenders in terms of places she thought would be most fulfilling to create and the most enjoyable for others to take part in. Amid hanging out with her crafty friends one night, Virginia brought up the idea and the response was a resounding, ‘you need to do this now.’ After many planning sessions with her husband and a lot of soul searching, she left her comfortable tech job to pursue the dream of seeing this crafting bar turn into a reality. She hasn’t looked back since. :-)
