Kate Henderson

I learnt to sew as a teenager and started making clothes as I liked the idea of wearing things that were unique. After my twins were born I started sewing clothes for them and then I started sewing toys for them. Not long after I was asked to design some toys for books and magazines. I love trying new things so it wasn’t long before I was designing and making quilts as well. I am a mother of four girls and they love to help choose colours and fabrics and test out my new toy and quilt designs.
