About Me

Hi there! I'm Katie, the face behind The Fabric Squirrel. I'm a multi-tasking enthusiast, dividing my time between sewing, nurturing my businesses, being a devoted mum to my two boys, and tending to my houseplants and garden.

My journey in sewing and crafting began at a young age, and over the years, I've accumulated a wealth of experience in dressmaking and quilting. In 2016, after the arrival of my son George, my love for quilting blossomed into Crafts by Katie, where I've had the joy of creating over 250 keepsakes.

In 2017, we moved into a new house, granting me the luxury of a dedicated sewing room. The inspiration for The Fabric Squirrel came from the furry-tailed visitors in my garden. Like many crafters, I've always squirreled away my supplies and fabric, and with time, my sewing haven transformed into a treasure trove of bolts of fabric waiting to be shared with fellow enthusiasts.

 

While managing my businesses and family life, I strive to sew for myself and my boys whenever I can. My goal? To build a majority "me-made" wardrobe, one stitch at a time. Follow my sewing adventures on social media and my blogs, where I regularly share tutorials, tips, and glimpses into my creative process.

 

Whether you're a seasoned crafter or just starting your sewing journey, I invite you to join The Fabric Squirrel community. Explore our curated collection of fabrics, get inspired by our projects, and connect with fellow makers who share your passion for creating beautiful things.
