If you happen to be one of the three people left in Hebden not already into arts, craft or sewing, a visit to Word of Mouth could change all that. Owned and run by bubbly mum-of-three Jinny, this fab space is literally packed to the rafters with stuff to tempt you, whether you’re a wannabe Picasso or a dab hand at dressmaking.

Artists and crafters can pick from top brands like Winsor & Newton, Daler Rowney and Seawhite, while fun brands perfect for kids include Snazeroo face paints, amazing Brusho powder pigments, and Posca Pens which work on anything! Children love the legendary Kids’ Corner here as well: a toy-filled area for keeping them busy while you browse.

If it’s haberdashery you need, you’re in luck. A fashion graduate herself, Jinny sells everything from Gutermann threads, Fiskars scissors, haberdashery and zips to all sorts of popular fabrics like canvas, muslin, hessian, craft cottons and curtain linings.

Don’t just come to Word of Mouth for the products though, best of all, Jinny is a compulsive problem-solver, so she loves nothing more than a good natter and the chance to fix your fashion or crafting challenge.
