My name is Kate and I started Bothy Threads about 20 years ago. Stitching has been my life-long hobby and I simply ran out of kits that I wanted to stitch and so made some of my own! The business really took off when I began to ask artists, whose work I liked, if I could use their work as a basis for designs. I really like designs that are a bit unusual! I love finding little beads and charms to enhance the stitching.
