About Annie's Catalog
Annie’s Catalog, found online at AnniesCatalog.com, was established in 1975 and promises their customers everything they need for their crafts, nostalgia, and home décor interests.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, the Annie’s Catalog and Annie’s Craft Store creators and employees share their customers’ passion for “creative expression and love of home and family.”
To best serve their customers, they promise that their team has selected the best new offerings from the thousands of options they come across, to make sure that they are providing you with “original products that surprise and delight.”
In addition to the best quality products, however, this company also provides their customers with “quality writing, clear instruction, and beautiful illustrations” to ensure that you can complete your projects to the best of your ability and to the level you wish.
Customers are always able to go to their website and search for a specific product they may be looking for, or they can look through products by category, including Crochet, Knit, Yarn, Quilt, Sew, Fabric, Tools & Notions, Needlework & Plastic Canvas, Beading & Jewelry, Painting & Drawing, and more.
Since this company carries such a broad diversity of products at this time, there is no real way to quote a single or static price range, especially since they frequently offer their customers sales, promotions, and deals which will change the prices of their products.
Annie’s Catalog and Craft Store says that satisfaction is guaranteed, and that customers who are not happy with their purchase for any reason are welcome to return their products within the first 90 days for an exchange, credit, or refund.
If you are hoping to return an item because it is damaged, they ask that you contact Customer Service right away so they can address any issues and best help you find the right solution.
Unfortunately, they will not accept any returns for downloaded material. If you are having technical difficulties with a downloadable product, you should contact Customer Service for assistance, though they do ask that you contact them within 10 day of the original sale date.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by submitting them directly to their website through the Feedback link at the bottom of their webpage.

3 ‘Annie's Catalog’ Reviews
I ordered 3 bundles of FQ, because it was offered for $10/bundle instead of $13.80. When I went through the site and put in my order, I ended up getting charged $13.80 for each bundle. I requested a refund of the difference. Got several emails that just kept saying 'thank you for your order', but no resolution. I then requested 4 times to just cancel my order and refund my money. Nope. That did not happen either. Instead, I got an email that said I should have gone through this one area to get my order for $10/bundle.
There was nothing that said that on the site.
Now I received the order. Is it worth even $10/bundle? No, it is not.
I will NEVER order from this company again. Their customer service is pretty non-existent. They will not give you refunds and will not cancel your order, even though you request that multiple times.
This company uses One Stop Mailing for shipping. Takes too long to receive items they ship. They need to offer their customers the option of choosing priority mail or other faster methods of shipping. From Texas to South Carolina its been 8 days since the package left their business and I still do not have a delivery date. The package actually did STOP three days ago and has not resumed.
I have gotten many orders from Annie's. The goods have been excellent, the orders delivered promptly. When I had to contact customer service (my mistake--not theirs) they went out of their way to resolve my problem
