I've always loved making things, and now create garments and accessories especially for babies and children.

Knowing how to knit, sew and make your own clothes is no longer a necessity.

In a world where you can update your wardrobe at any time, for little more than a few pounds, I think it's even more important not to forget the value of the handmade. Until I created Craftworks, my very supportive family have been the only recipients of my work, now I'm excited to be able to share what I make with other families. 

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 - whether that's been scrapbooks or jewellery. Now I focus on sewing and knitting and as well as making items for Craftworks Baby, I like to make and customise clothes for myself (which I share on my blog and over on Instagram too).

I can't imagine not being busy with some project or other and all the items in my store are made with lots of love and care. 

I sometimes take on individual projects, sewing and knitting special items on request, made-to-order. If you'd like something made for you or a loved one then please get in touch with me at
