My Story

From a very young age I have loved all things sewing and craft. My Grandma introduced me to a sewing machine in my early teens and since then I have been hooked. She took me to pick out some fabrics at her local fabric shop and we made a purple patchwork cushion. 

Crafts by Katie was born when I started creating too many things to use or gift to family. I simply needed a way to get some of my creativity out. I would attend craft fairs regularly with baby bibs, aprons, bags, pretty much anything! When I wasn't sewing I worked a number of jobs delivering and coordinating training and also spent my pregnancy driving around Lincolnshire trying to help make a more dementia friendly community through the Alzheimer's Society.

When I became a Mum for the first time in the Spring of 2016 I decided to hone my craft in and really focus on it as a career to allow me to be a full time mum. With some of George's not so special babygrows, I created my first keepsake quilt. I wasn't new to quilting so this came easily to me. A friend then asked me to create one for her. It has grown and grown since then and I have now lost count of how many I have made, but it is nearing 300.

Alongside being a full time mum and my keepsake business I also run The Fabric Squirrel, my online fabric shop. At some points during a 24 hour period I also manage to eat, sleep and tend to me garden and houseplants. I couldn't do it all without the support and encouragement of my husband who I met when we were just 17.


The two businesses are the perfect marriage, and they allow me to surround myself in pretty fabric and offer a wide range of fabric backings for my keepsakes. I am forever pinching myself that I am able to share my love of sewing with my customers and I now cannot imagine myself doing anything else.
