I love all things crafty and sewing so when I decided to take the plunge and become self employed I went into making all things baby. I started printing my own baby vests and creating keepsake quilts from old baby clothes. You can view them on my sister site Crafts by Katie.
I wanted to offer beautiful backing fabrics for my keepsake quilts. A lot of the fabrics I buy are top quality designer cottons and can be quite hard to get hold of here in the UK. There are so many other creative people out there, I thought why not share them with you lovely lot who also like to sew your own!
We recently moved into a new house and I now have a fantastic sewing room all to myself. Our visitors no longer have to worry about pins in their bed or manikins standing in the corner of the room when they stay over. I wanted to wait until we moved to be inspired on what to call my fabric shop. Our house number had a squirrel on it and I often get a furry tailed little visitor nibbling bird feed outside my craft room window. Since, like a lot of crafters, I have always squirreled away my supplies and fabric, it felt like the perfect name!
My stash of fabric and sewing supplies grow regularly so keep subscribed and follow me on social media for the latest.
