About Kath Heywood Designs

 Kath Heywood Designs

I love to design and make stylish accessories and cheerful greetings cards from my home studio in Pendle, Lancashire

I have always drawn and made things from being a child, probably because I was surrounded by crafty women, the textile variety not devious ones!

I spend afternoons in my studio either painting or sewing, followed by evenings of knitting in front of the television preferably by a cosy fire. When I'm not being creative I'm usually walking my border collie Tilly or tidying the garden- housework doesn't often get a look in but thankfully Mr H is happy to chip in with chores.

I studied art and textile crafts at Sheffield College of Education and opened my Folksy shop in 2010, steadily developing a collection of stylish, easy to wear knitted accessories and cheerful greeting cards. I also love to up-cycle unwanted fabrics and make something one of a kind and useful from them.

I'm a member of Pendle Artists and exhibit paintings 2 or 3 times a year with this group.

You can follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter where I post work in progress, behind the scene photos and any events that I attend. I'm a regular exhibitor at Art in the Pen and Crafts in the Pen in Skipton.

You can be assured that all my products are made from quality materials with years of expertise and experience going into them. I listen to my customers and adapt my designs to meet their needs so if you have suggestions I'm happy to do commissions or personalised items. Please get in touch if you like my style and think I can help.

Best wishes
