Meet Kate of SewKatiepie:

Hi, I'm Kate. Katiepie is one of my nicknames. I love to sew.

I'm a kiwi mother to a 2 year old daughter and live with my fantastic partner (her father) and two of his three teenage sons.

I love fabric. I have been sewing as a hobby since my grandmother bought me a sewing machine at the age of 15 (I won't let on how long that is - I have since upgraded the machine though!). Having left the corporate world to have my daughter, I am now thoroughly enjoying being a mother and exploring a more creative lifestyle.

I also enjoy gardening, sailing, baking (such a fun activity with toddlers. Messy, but fun. Hence the line of retro aprons!) and weekly french lessons.

I am loving the opportunity to create environmentally friendly clothing for children. As a mother, I am conscious of what I feed my daughter, her environment and what I clothe her in. I love the fact that Merino wool is now available in silky soft weaves that are not scratchy and that I can throw in the washing machine - just as easy as polar fleece but oh so, so much nicer!

I hope you enjoy looking around my shop. If there is something you like but not in your required size, or something that is not currently listed but that I have sold - just convo me. I love making to order. Please don't be shy...

I'm currently working on some more hoodies for toddlers which will be in store soon.

I love those kimono jackets. I'm a strong supporter of unisex clothes for the little ones. Such beautiful materials and great photos!
