for vintage inspired crochet and organics

I'm Cat and I'm based on the lovely South Wales coast.

I can't remember a time when I couldn't knit or sew. After being shown how to strand wool I designed and made my first Fair Isle jumper when I was very young.

I was trained in Textile Arts before spending my career in Education both classroom based and as a field teacher for a well known conseravtion charity.

The love of the environment has led me to use organic materials wherever possible.

    Trained in Textile Arts, I use organics where possible. I love to crochet, knit and sew, that's when I'm not in my garden. Look out for my new book, "Fifty Pincushions to Knit and Crochet".
