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 complementary 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. 

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 love and are as proud of as we are.
