Whether you sew, quilt, embroider, knit, or do any kind of needlework, we believe that handicrafts create a happier world.

Using your hands to make something stimulates your imagination, gives you a source of pride and accomplishment, and ultimately feeds your soul.

It's not just about the finished product, it's about the journey.

Hemma is Swedish for "at home."

We're here to inspire you and help create a bright, cheery, and happy life at home.
