Kittys Stitches is a new venture inspired by the memory of our nan - 'Nanny Kit' - who grew up and raised a large family in an era when the home comforts that we now often take for granted were not as widely available as they are today.

I have always been interested in crafts and making items for the home. My sister, Vicki wanted some good quality but affordable accessories for her daughter's bedroom and I offered to make them for her - and so the idea for Kittys Stitches was born.

After too many years between us in public service, we decided to turn my hobby into our business. We have spent the last 12 months testing our products at local fairs, school fetes and with advice from friends and family are now ready to launch our range of home accessories.

We have developed a range of products that we think our Nan would have loved and we hope you love them too.
