Our Story


The Crafting Cottage opened in May of 2003 as a paper crafting shop filled with rubber stamps, papers, ribbons and more. Classes and workshops were offered weekly.

Today, the Crafting Cottage has become a destination for weekend retreats, overnights, crops, workshops, classes and special events for the paper crafter.

The Crafting Cottage celebrated 20 years in May of 2023!

Changing with the times, the “retail shop” of the Cottage is making several major changes.

One of the ways for crafters to easily shop for the unique merchandise the Crafting Cottage has been known for is to visit the booth, located at The Shoppes at Oldies But Goodies. Details below.

More workshops, classes and events will be happening at the Crafting Cottage in 2024 and participants will have the opportunity to shop at those events.

 You can find unique crafting supplies such as card kits, Graphic 45 products, rubber stamps, papers from Italy and more now at the Crafting Cottage’s booth located at:

The Shoppes at Oldies But Goodies

10 Carpenter Road (Route 352) in Big Flats, NY

The Shoppes are open Thursdays – Mondays from 10 AM till 5 PM

As I like to say, “Stay crafty my friends”.
