What better place to find all the materials you need to let your imagination run wild… from brilliant bonnets to terrific top hats, anything’s possible with the products available in store and online!

Milliner to the stars and Brain Tumour Research ambassador, Stephen Jones OBE, worked alongside Hobbycraft to create some incredible and unique designs from materials purchased in-store.

Hobbycraft employees and customers will be taking part in a special Wear A Hat Day weekend between 31st March-2nd April, as well as a series of instore events, including hat-making workshops, across more than 80 stores across the country in the run-up to Wear A Hat Day.

Please enquire at your local Hobbycraft store for the specific dates and times of their events. 


The inspiration

Hobbycraft chose to support Brain Tumour Research after one of their suppliers was personally affected by this devastating disease. Deepa Jivan lost her beloved father Mahendra in February 2014, following a six-month battle with the disease. Read his story as told by Deepa here.
