About

Debuting in 2017, Octagon Distribution was created out of a desire to not only delve into the wonderful world of modern haberdashery, craft and care products, but to deliver them to our clients all the way from Northern America. 

Owner and fellow crafter Carmen Schmidt of A Yarn Story, realised how difficult it was to import products from country to country and, with this, felt a need to offer a service that would make providing these goods effortless and accessible to other similar and independent businesses. 

The team at Octagon are specialists in those hard-to-find beloved notions and yarn accessories from overseas. And our aim is to deliver this exceptional and exclusive merchandise to you, our European customers.

Listening to our clients has enabled us to curate and provide products that delight and inspire crafters and makers. 

We enjoy working with leading retailers such as Soak, Cocoknits and Purl & Loop, with all products tried and tested in-house before we incorporate them into the Octagon family.

We’re a small and mightily passionate team based in Bath, UK and you can catch us in the office from Monday to Thursday 10.00am till 4.00pm.
