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 go through phases of what is my favourite craft – am having a bit of a pompom craze at the mo!

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


I live 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!
