Who am I?

Hello, my name is Kathryn; I am a mother of 2 beautiful girls in the greater Toronto Area. I have dabbled with various crafts since childhood but really threw myself into sewing when I relocated here from Quebec City some 15 years ago. It started as something to keep me busy on the lonely nights where I missed my friends and evolved into something that reminds me I am more than just a mother and wife, even when everyday life takes over and tries to make me lose myself.

Sewing reminds me I am an artist in the deepest of my core; I see something in a dream and show it to the world! I find there is something magical about the whole process.

Where do BirdsloveBees items come to life?

I have created a modest sewing space in a small area of my home. This space is where I can be “me” for hours without interruption and feel relaxed and content.

My sewing space is where I saved Christmas a few years back when as a single mother at the time I realized my bank account was insufficient to purchase gifts for everyone on my list.

My sewing space helped me create items that even amaze me in their beauty and charm.

My sewing space is where BirdsLoveBees really came to exist.

Why BirdsLoveBees?

The name of my shop came about one day as I noticed my daughter Logan (a baby at the time) watching her older sister play with such admiration and love in her eyes. Logan had become Logan Bird the moment I set my eyes on her and my eldest goes by the name of Maya Bee (a show I watched as a child). That’s when it came to me; Birds (Logan) love Bee’s (Maya).

What type of items does BirdsloveBees have to offer?

My sewing projects have evolved from fabric and felt necklaces, to hats, bibs, baby bonnets, child aprons and ponchos, to children play items such as dolls, masks and capes. My main focus right now is on Baby Blankets, dolls and Stockings at Christmas time.

My Baby Bonnets are the item that gave me the courage to visit a few local stores to offer my products but the charm of my Baby Tag Blankets, Rag Quilts and Hand Made Dolls are what made Birdslovebees a local success.

What materials are used?

My items are made from a variety of fabrics, some found at my local fabric store but most of my blankets and stockings are made from fabric I locate at second hand stores. Since they are washed prior to becoming available for sale this is a luxury I like to take advantage of.

Knowing I am giving items a second life and saving thousands of yards of fabric from landfills makes me happy. The environment is a very important part of who I am and what I believe in, this is one of the ways I can do my part.

Does BirdsloveBees offer Custom Orders?

If there is something you like on my site that does not match your color palette please feel free to contact me for a custom order inquiry. This is a service I provide to many of my clients and would be happy to include you on that list.

I find there is a certain satisfaction and challenge in a custom order, you never exactly know what the other person see’s in their mind when placing the order. My items are not specific like a cake flavor or a specific picture on a painting; it all varies on the available fabric, I usually ask the color and theme and run with it.

I am glad to say I have yet to meet a disappointed customer!
