Kate Mahoney's Profile
I just love colour and fibre - and I love making unique handcrafted items. I have crafted all my life, beginning with a very strange-looking stuffed elephant as a five-year-old. I have a particular love for wool, brought about by a long-lasting obsession with a much-loved blanky when I was a baby.
These days I'm a bit more sophisticated! Mostly I dye fibre for other crafters, but I also spin, knit crochet and make felt, producing unique, one-off handcrafted items. In my spare time (laugh) I produce the occasional bead and wire jewelry piece.
I've also recently begun sharing my designs for knitting, crochet and felting through sites such as ravelry.com (KatyPi) and on my website, heavenlywools.co.nz.
