About Us


The Bead Shop Scotland  is a treasure trove of colourful delights. You’ll find beads in every colour of the rainbow, books and patterns to inspire you, handmade jewellery, findings, tools and all the threading materials you could possibly want to make your own jewellery. The Wool Shop, opened in December 2011 can be found nestling at the back of The Bead Shop. Here you’ll find sumptuous yarns by top names such as Debbie Bliss and Rowan, alongside unusual yarns from Adriafil and a fantastic selection of the softest baby yarns in the most delicious shades. In addition to the yarns, you’ll also find a great selection of buttons and a range of beautiful fabrics.

The Bead Shop Scotland was established in October 2004 and has grown from a small store in Haddington to a large shop and a busy online store. We run children’s parties for 5 children upwards (age 6 and over) and a range of workshops for adults. The workshops aren’t restricted to beading either –  you can book a Knit or Crochet class, hand and machine sewing, watercolour painting or and of course we have a great range of jewellery making classes.

You’ll be greeted warmly by the friendly, enthusiastic staff at The Bead & Wool Shop. We have an infectious passion for all things crafty and are only too happy to share our knowledge and skills. Why not come along and find out for yourself!

You’ll find us in the historic market town of Haddington, a short drive 15 miles east of Edinburgh. Parking is free outside the shop and throughout the town. At the weekend, you can park in the large council car park at the back of The Bead Shop.

We're open Monday to Saturday, all bank holidays except Christmas day, Boxing day, New Years day and the 2nd of January. 

Monday - Saturday 10:00 - 17:00
