Me

Amy is an almost 30 something mother of four and wife to one. She dabbles in all things craft but mainly sticks to sewing, quilting and now that she can finally crochet she spends a lot of time doing that.

And Sew We Craft was an idea she had in 2011 to bring like-minded crafters together to share their love of crafting with others.

My mother taught me to crochet when I was 9 and I was hooked. Since then I do any craft that tickles my fancy which at the moment includes cross stitch, knitting, crochet, quilting and sewing toys and clothes. I like to always have something to do.

Over the years I’ve tried my hand at many crafts, card making, folk art, scrapbooking and more recently sewing with a little bit of quilting thrown in.  I love making bags and have started releasing bag patterns this year.  When I’m not sewing I’m running around after my 2 energetic boys or making coffees at the cafe.

I have been a crafter for as long as I can remember. My mum loved doing up old furniture, and would sew us costumes and clothes. My grandmothers knitted and sewed. Every holiday we would do an art or craft class of some variety, and in between times we would craft away at whatever project had captured our fancy. For a while in early-adulthood, work and uni got in the way of creating, but once our first son was born, I was back into making anything and everything. I first started blogging in 2007, as a way to show off my quilts and other creations to the little online quilting group I belonged tobefore shifting to thebarefootcrafter.com in February this year, where I blog about my creative projects that range from sewing to crochet to needlework to beading to art journaling to whatever crafty thing next catches my fancy! On Instagram I am the host of the Saturday Night Craft Along, a weekly event where crafters on Instagram come together to craft and chat and enjoy social crafting without having to leave home. I have long been obsessed with pretty paper and stationery (please don’t ask about my drawer of journals and writing paper, it’s embarrassing how much is in there!), and these days make and sell my own range of letterpress stationery. On social media you can find me on Instagram (@barefootcrafter), Pinterest (of course! /barefootcraft), Facebook (/thebarefootcrafter) and Twitter/Periscope (@barefootcrafter). I also have a small and woefully neglected YouTube channel that I am planning on giving some attention to very shortly. On a personal note, I am a stay at home mum to four children aged 2 to 9, all of whom have caught the crafting bug from me!
