About me 

I'm Lauren and I live in Reading with my husband and our rescue cat Bob, who spends the majority of his time in his basket, looking at us with distain.

I've always been a maker and I can't imagine not being busy with some project or other, from knitting to sewing, to up-cycling furniture.

When I first started making things, I lived for blogs and Youtube videos to help me understand the world I had just started delving into. After all, it can feel like patterns and instructions are written in another language! Even now, I often rely on information from other makers when I encounter a new technique or skill.

That's why I created Craftworks.
