Hi, I'm Kirsten (also known as Mrs Make and Do), a designer and maker who's passionate about creativity and fabulous fabrics. Based in Bristol with Mr Make and Do and our two children (the Mini Make and Dos).
Way back in 2010 my maternity leave from being a secondary school art teacher came to an end and having decided not to go back was itching to do something creative. Make and Do was born as an online shop stocking gorgeous fabrics with classes at venues around Bristol to inspire and enable people to get creative.
My first subscription craft packs were sent out in August 2013 as a little weekly package of fabrics and other crafty goodies. In February 2014 Inspirations Club went monthly and I added clear step by step project instructions to enable subscribers to learn new skills and get making straight away.
When I'm not making a mess with the Mini Make and Dos (pretty sure they have more craft stuff than I do) or jumping in puddles I'm drinking coffee whilst sourcing fabrics and trims for your Inspirations Club and designing things for you to make. I have also designed a range of simple craft kits that are available from fabric and craft shops.
Inspirations Club Subscribers receive a carefully curated package of fabrics, ribbons, buttons and other crafty goodies delivered straight to their door every month, with instructions for two projects so that you can get making straight away.
