My name is Katy and I am the founder of Pixiecraft. Pixiecraft specialises in creating colourful hand embroidered art, printed stationery and homewares as well as teaching creative workshops.

I taught myself to sew in 2011 having never undertaken any needlework before, I quickly fell in love with the process but felt limited by the designs and so I began to create my own original designs. In 2012 Pixiecraft was born with a focus on intricate and inspiring pieces designed to spread joy. Over the years I have developed into creating whimsical impressions of wildlife and have brought out a range of miniature wearable embroideries. In 2016 I released the first hand embroidery kit and I am now releasing new kits and downloadable patterns regularly so that everyone can have a go at creating some stitchy magic.

The foundations of Pixiecraft have always been about creating beautiful, delicate work which is stitched completely by hand and can spread joy which stays key to the business to this day.

I teach creative workshops throughout the North West, online and I am willing to travel. Please check our social media or join the mailing list for updates of any upcoming events and workshops. Alternatively if you would like to arrange a workshop for your own group or organisation then please contact me for more information.

Pixiecraft is very much a family affair. The two Little Pixies who are home educated are an important part of the business and can often be found helping to label boxes, do post runs and help out at children’s classes.

We have a strong social media community, particularly across Facebook and Instagram and if you join us you will get many sneak peeks behind the scenes as well as a first look at any offers, updates and giveaways.

I regularly take on commissions and collaborations, if you would like to work with me to create something unique then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
