About Kathy

My name is Kathy and I have a passion for crafting! Kathy, owner of upcycled baby clothes websiteSewing and knitting are top of the list but I felt, weave, bake, make jam/chutneys and have dabbled with jewelery making. I’ve lived in Scotland since I was 11 when a new job for my Dad brought us up here.

I’ve had many different jobs over the years but my best role was being a mother to my 4 children. I was a “stay at home” Mum only taking part-time jobs as the children grew older.

When one of my daughters told me she was expecting a little girl I was just buzzing with ideas for making upcycled baby clothes for her, that’s how this website came into being. Lilly Anne was born on 27th August 2014, a healthy 8’12 and the perfect model for baby clothes!

I have another Granddaughter who is now 13 and at that age where wearing anything home made is just not done. I’m sure that’ll change as she grows up. I taught her her to use a sewing machine when she was 8 and she is quite a competent seamstress now. This Granddaughter keeps me right with things like Instagram, social media and useful apps for my smartphone!

A few random facts about me:

  • I was born in Chepstow, England in 1956.
  • I have 2 sisters, I’m the middle one.
  • I married in 1978 and am now widowed.
  • I have 4 grown up kids.
  • My home is in Angus Scotland which I share with my 3 dogs.
  • I have a passion for sewing machines and own a few.
  • Hobbies as well as sewing are knitting (and all things crafty), reading, swimming, gardening, baking/cooking and walking my dogs.
  • I hate ironing!
  • I have an HND in computing, (technical support) and am the “fixer” for family and friends when they have computing issue.
