Cat from Sewing Bear

Our story 

Hi, I'm Cat, the founder of Sewing Bear. 

I love sewing and embroidery and have been doing it since I was about 7. I love the freedom of creating something completely unique and I wanted to share my favourite projects and make them suitable for everyone to have a go at, in the hope you all enjoy them as much as I do. 

I find a lot of kits and projects too restrictive - they give you exact instructions and that's it. So my fundamental approach is to make sure that each design has suggestions for how you can adapt, tweak and change it, to make it completely your own, and I'm so excited to see what you create. I'm hugely inspired by the materials and embellishments available, so you'll find lots of sparkle in the kits and materials less commonly used in embroidery to create something really different. 

I'm based in Tunbridge Wells in Kent, and run Sewing Bear from home. Where ever possible I aim for plastic free packaging  and the majority of my suppliers are UK based. 

I hope you enjoy the projects as much as I do and I can't wait to talk to you on social.
