About Me

Hello!  I’m Karron, a former primary school deputy headteacher living in County Durham.  I enjoy anything creative and I especially enjoy sewing and working with fabrics.

I wonder if you’ve ever felt a little bit like me?

  • Have you ever bought crafting kits and books that are still sitting on a shelf unopened?
  • Have you ever started a project then given up because the instructions were unclear or too difficult to follow?
  • Is there a particular sewing skill or technique that you have always wanted to try but don’t know where to start?
  • Have you started a project, made a mistake and been unsure how to put it right?
  • Have you ever felt nervous about joining a new group or taking up a new hobby?

Hands-On Crafting

Crafty Kitz provides face-to-face workshops in County Durham and organises community crafting groups to support local charities. Sewing tuition is also available. We produce our own affordable crafting kits containing all of the materials you need together with illustrated, step-by-step instructions, and each kit contains a transferable ‘skill-builder’ that can be used in other projects. All Crafty Kitz customers will be given access to our Facebook community where you can share pictures of your makes or ask other crafters for help and advice.

Karron says …

“Crafting is so much more than just producing a final product. I have run many crafting and sewing classes over the years, for both adults and children of all ages, and it is extremely rewarding to see the pleasure and confidence that everyone gets from taking part in an activity and developing new skills together.

I also know from personal experience just how much crafting can lift your spirits, and make you feel better about yourself especially when you hit one of life’s bumps in the road! Crafting helps to reduce anxiety and distracts you from the stresses of everyday life, no matter what your skill level. It leaves you feeling happier and more positive, and it is great fun learning alongside others with similar interests. That’s why it’s important to have clear instructions and lots of encouragement because it is easy to feel disappointed or useless if things don’t work out as you’d planned.”

Remember ‘’YOU CAN DO IT!”
