We are Craft therefore we are. The Outback Yarns and Galloway Arts and Craft Centre is a small family run business located in a small town in the South West of Scotland called Castle Douglas.


We seem to have lost track of when we were first established, but we are now onto the 3rd generation of family members which help run and manage the stores day to day requirements.


Stocking a vast range of Art Supplies, Crafting Materials, Knitting Yarns, Haberdashery, Buttons Ribbons, Fabric, Vintage Games, Jewellery, Minerals, Semi-precious stones and more – there is bound to be something you are looking for. Dogs are more than welcome and don’t forget to visit the mystical area up the stairs (the craft domain).
