What projects are you currently working on?
Im currently drawing new designs for my bunting (drawing is not my strong point), currently i have birds and recently i made deer bunting so i want to do more animals.Read the rest of the interview »

I’m Kate Haxell, a devout Londoner. I work as a craft book editor and author, which is a job I love (nearly all of the time…) I’m rubbish at social media, though I have discovered Twitter (talk about late to the party…) and I’m trying not to be too terrified by it (come and say hello to me, please). I live in a house I love, with a man, a dog, and two cats, all of whom I also love.

New York City never ceases to amaze me. One minute you’re in a busy thoroughfare, the next a quiet park. You can find busy bars, quiet museums and quirky cafes. When it comes down to the core of it, the best thing about NYC is the people. It’s a true mixing pot of every kind of person you can imagine, young and old, rich and poor, cheery and snarky. It’s a mix of races, religions and beliefs unlike anything I’ve seen in any of my travels outside of the region. Some people think we are a bit brash, but we are also friendly and honest.

I love that my studio is housed in such a historic building. My studio used to be a beauty shop in the 50's.
The facade and windows of the building allow great light to filter in.I also love that the space is big enough for all of my students but also cozy enough to create a feeling of warmth when we are all working together.

My Craftroom is not a very big place though but my favorite thing is it's big window which is passing good light in the room whole day, I have placed my craft table near the window & it simply filled my room with perfect brightness! It also pass fresh air in my room & makes me feel good while working on art & craft projects.
