About me

Hello, my name is Katy Livings.

This is my grandmother, Annie Davies and I get my love of buttons and stitching from her.

I have been making and sewing since the age of 4 and went on to study Textile Design at University, specialising in embroidery. I have worked as a freelance designer for Interior and Fashion companies in the UK and Paris. My designs have been used across fabric, wallpaper, bridal wear, womenswear, childrenswear, accessories and toys. Companies I have worked with include Habitat, Crown Wallcoverings, Nitya, Mattel Toys and George Clothing. I was commissioned by Tony and Cherie Blair to design and make gifts for the G8 summit.

I am a mum to two little children, William and Lucy and wife to one (occasionally) patient husband.

Welcome to my workshop.
