I'm Katie, I spend my time split between sewing, running my business, Mumming to my two boys and tending to my house plants and garden.
I have sewn and crafted from a young age and now have far more dressmaking and quilting years under my belt than I care to admit to. My business developed from a love of quilting initially and I started up Crafts by Katie creating keepsakes after having George in 2016. I have now created over 200 keepsakes!
We moved into a new house in 2017 where I gained a fantastic sewing room all to myself. It was the furry tailed little visitors in the garden that inspired The Fabric Squirrel name. Since, like a lot of crafters, I have always squirreled away my supplies and fabric, it felt like the perfect name! What started as one Ikea shelving unit for my quilting backings has turned into hundreds of bolts of fabric to share with you all.
I try to sew for myself and my boys as much as possible with the aim to have a majority me made wardrobe one day. You can follow my sewing journey on social media and on my blogs. I regularly create tutorials for The Craft Cotton Company too.
