About Once In A While

Once In A While was established in May 2012, turning a hobby into a business and it has continued to grow into a home of handcrafted cards, gifts, decorations and more recently a selection of craft kits and accessories.


Based in the Swansea Valley, I attend public events and various shows throughout the year. You'll also find a range of Once In A While products in @The Coterie, Clydach.


Please visit the handcrafted categories of the online shop for a selection of handcrafted goodies, most of which can be personalised on request, at time of ordering.

For the creative ones among you, Once In A While is a proud stockist of Corinne Lapierre products; a very modern range of quality craft kits, which include everything to complete a project, of which all materials are ethically sourced and environmentally friendly. The felt bundles are a wool/viscose mix and are available in a range of distinctive shades.


The kits are designed and made in Britain with a lot of love and attention to detail, as you will see when you pop over to the online shop. Corinne is a familiar face on Create and Craft TV and has published three bestselling craft books.

As of November 2020, we're also a stockist of The Crafty Kit Company products, who believe that everyone can be creative.

'We know that crafting is good for us - it’s a relaxing, sociable hobby that sharpens the mind, increases confidence and promotes a wonderful sense of well being.'

Thank you for visiting Once In A While and hopefully see you somewhere soon.

Stay safe, lots of crafty love
