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 in Clydach, Ty Crefft, Narberth, The Bee House, Carmarthen and Caru Craft gift shop which is based above The Tea Rooms, Glynneath.


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
