Hi! I’m Kym, a sewist and crafter from Cumbria.

I love sewing and crafts and always have lots of creative projects on the go all at the same time!

I am passionate about sharing sewing and craft projects and this is how ‘MAKE! The Lakes’ came about.

In 2020, I was the lucky winner of the C4 Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas Best Stocking Competition with my Ice Dyed Stocking! Yippee! Check out the episode here.


I live in a Castle in The Lake District with my lovely partner and little cat who likes to ‘help out’ in the studio sometimes!

Check out my portfolio for all my sewing and crafty makes! If you need any help with a project I would love to hear from you – anything from theatre costumes to cushions, give me a shout!
