The business was born in a small unit in the Bede Arcade,Bedworth selling art materials and picture framing.
Ruth Flanagan, with two small children and her husband who at that time worked another job by day & made custome frames by night for Ruth.
Despite inexperiance and setbacks they worked hard to make the business the success it is today.

I had worked many a year with Ruth and gained a wealth of knowledge & experience of the business.
Upon Ruth's retirement in 2012 the oppurtunity arose to purchase Abbeycraft Artworld allowing us to continue serving our new, old & loyal customers.
Allowing us to build on the great foundation of community spirit and the passion that we hold for arts and crafts was born.
And so our journey begins,
My name is Samantha and I'm passionate about my work and my role at Abbeycraft Artworld, not only as the manager, but as someone that is enthusiastic to help and guide our customers through all the various arts and craft mediums that we hold.
The team is made up currently of myself, Lorraine and Maya, Who each can offer excellant guidance and advice to all of our customers needs.
We also offer a loyalty card to our customers to show our appreciation,
As a small independent business with a big heart we at times limited to stock availabilty, We are more than happy to source and accomadate our customers requests where possible.
