Haan Crafts is closing, visit their site while you still can.

Sadly, Haan Crafts is closing. Our family, as well as many others, have enjoyed their sewing kit projects for years.  If you have not seen the website before check it out now, while you still can. Their stuffed animal kits have been a particular favorite of co-op classes.  The patterns are printed directly on the material for ease of cutting them out, and everything you need to complete the project comes in the package. Their prices are extremely reasonable.

Dear Valued Customers,

It is with deep regret that we are announcing the closure of the Haan Crafts business. After 40 years of passionately serving the sewing market, mostly in the classroom, we are sad that we have been compelled to make this decision. As many of you know, more and more schools are no longer offering sewing as a classroom choice, and due to this, it has become impossible to sustain a profitable, stand-alone business.

We anticipate that the Haan Crafts facility will remain open until the end of June, and we will be accepting orders until June 16, 2017. You can visit the Haan Crafts website ( for updates over the coming weeks.

Nasco Education, the parent of Haan Crafts, will continue to provide a variety of sewing supplies through its Family and Consumer Sciences catalog and website ( There may also be Haan Crafts kits available through Nasco, based on inventory availability, for a short period as we enter the 2017/2018 school year.

We want to take this time to thank you, as a customer of Haan Crafts, for your loyalty and friendship. Please rest assured that we are doing as much as we can to help our employees transition into the next phase of their lives. We value your business and look forward to continue to serve you through our extensive portfolio of educational supplies.

Best Regards,

Craig Johnson
