Arts and crafts retail chain Hobbycraft has revealed its official opening date for its first store in the county.

The company, which already has shops in Nottingham, Hull and Derby, will officially open on Valentine Retail Park on Tritton Road in Lincoln on Wednesday, April 4.

Hobbycraft was founded in 1995 and now has over 80 stores across the UK.

The stores sell a variety of products for arts and craft activities such as baking, sewing and origami.

Store manager, Tracey Goddard, said: “We’re so looking forward to April when we can finally open the doors to our Lincoln store and share our passion for arts and crafts with the community.

“We’ve been working really hard to ensure that the store will be packed full of the most exciting crafting products, which will help our customers create some fantastic artistic projects.

“Our new colleagues are all dedicated crafters, and are ready to inspire and share their knowledge with locals of all crafting abilities.

“We’ll also be in touch with local artists, who will be invited to spend time at the store to showcase their own skills.”
