About Amber Makes

How It All Began

WELCOME TO AMBER MAKES!

Amber Makes was set up by two friends, Amy and Rebecca who wanted to use their skills and passions to create unique sewing kits featuring beautiful prints and illustrations with clear concise instructions. Luckily, they have different but very complimentary skills as Rebecca can sew and Amy can draw. They realised that together they could create great quality designs and kits that you really want and, equally important, that really work.

Rebecca has been involved in the craft industry for many years working for craft publishing and TV. Her background is in designing craft projects and writing technical instructions, so she knows what the crafter needs to be able to make a project.

 

Amy is a skilled surface pattern designer with a flair for illustration, colour and print. With a background in designing all things patterned from wallpaper to bedlinen, Amy fell in love with designing fabrics and prints for sewing projects and all things crafty.

We would love to hear from you if you have any questions, ideas or, even better, share photos of your finished projects. We want to inspire you to increase your stitching skills and create items that you are as proud of as we are.
