Red Creek Handmade
Squamish, British Columbia
A lover of craft, antiquity and hand-worked treasures from the past, Katie fell for the art of quilting a decade ago. Sources of inspiration are abundant and include textiles, quilts, solid colours, natural and hand-worked fabrics and dyes used by the founding artisans of folk art and craft.
In 2004, Katie’s self-taught crafting practice began with the purchase of her “own domestic” (a beat up 70’s Singer), starting with the ambitious task of quilting and expanding to include childrens clothing with the birth of her daughter, June.
Katie’s quilts are hand-made to last, always utilizing natural fabrics, timeless designs and technical craft-work. Each piece is unique, individual and custom. Her children’s clothing is made with the same integrity: Well-made to with-stand the test of time and wear, the silhouettes are gender neutral, the fabrics are functional, natural and durable, and affordable! All of her clothing and quilts are made on her homestead in Squamish BC, where she lives with her partner Reagen, their daughter June, their dog Hazel, her potager garden and about 100 chickens.
