About A Crafty Hen

After spending my childhood fascinated with my Grandmother's boxes of buttons, and stacks of fabric, and bags of lace often saved from old garments, I began sewing daily when my Grandmother, at the age of 90 gave me her sewing machine.

I no longer sew on that machine, though I still have it, I now have a machine that is a little bit more modern! But I do still sew daily and can't imagine doing anything else!

I began sewing for my children when they were babies and began collecting fabric, which got a little out of control so I jumped at the opportunity to sew for friends and family and the rest you could say is history!

I work from a corner of my home in Devon in the UK which I share with my husband and three children, who I still occasionally sew for!

A Crafty Hen allows me to keep buying fabric, which has become an addiction and I will admit that I do own fabric that I imagine I will never be able to cut into! Working for myself also allows for flexibility which is so important and useful when bringing up a family.

I sew because I love it. I make because I enjoy the whole creative process from sourcing the fabric which I buy from all over the world, to the sketching of items, to the construction and the handling of the final product.
Each item I make is made with a lot of care, love and with a huge amount of attention to detail.

It gives me enormous pleasure every time someone buys an item I have made. And I find it amazing to think that my products now have homes all over the world, if only I could travel with them, I would love to see the sights that they do!
