Hello, I am Hayley, maker and creator of everything that is Thread Kind Co. I spend my days juggling being a Mum, a part-time job and creating/sewing as much as I can. I started freehand machine embroidery in 2013, finding an old sewing machine in the cupboard, I started to sew the bluebirds that visited my garden and the hedgerow scenes from countryside walks in the Cotswolds, where I live and I have just never stopped sewing!!
It has not been an easy road for me starting and maintaining my business, so I find comforting words and quotes help my mindset which is why I started sewing kind words!
Here at Thread Kind Co. I am all about providing handmade products inspired by the countryside and positive quotes made using handpicked fabrics, making in small quantities and giving you the personalised touch to every item that is made.
I believe that buying from small businesses is something that makes the world a better place and is always going to be a win-win situation - you get something that has been beautifully created with all the thought put in from the initial idea all the way through to when its arrives at the post office and you also get to support a maker (an actual person) do something they love whilst providing for their family and well-being!! I think that is much better than just giving your hard-earned money to the Jeff Bezos of the world!
All my items are handmade by myself and all designs are stitched on my home sewing machine using a technique call free motion embroidery, which is essentially drawing on the sewing machine using thread – no fancy programmed machines have been used! At University I studied Fashion Design and learnt how to create patterns from scratch and was taught how to use many different types of sewing machines, but I have taught myself how to use free motion embroidery to create my designs.
Please go to the shop section to look at my range of homewares, accessories and stitched ‘kind words’ which have been handmade and designed by myself. If you are interested in having something made which would be personalised to you then please get in touch through the contact page.
