About Me

About me, Lucy

Hey there, lovely crafters! I'm Lucy, the enthusiastic creator and craft connoisseur behind The Naked Craft Club. As much as I adore my cozy home in Leeds, where I share my space with my crafty partner-in-crime, Andy, and our mischievous feline friend, Bandit, I've always had a bit of an itch for making things.

Ever since I attempted to recreate Tracy Island after watching an episode of Blue Peter, my heart has been set on a course of crafting adventures. There's something truly magical about taking bits of material, thread, and a touch of imagination and turning them into something beautiful, practical, or just plain cute.

Enough yapping, let me buy a box

About 5 years ago, I embarked on a crafting journey that changed my life โ€“ I started a little sewing group called Sewing for Beginners UK. Little did I know that this community would blossom into a vibrant hub of over 60,000 creative souls. It became clear that many folks out there were eager to sew but a tad nervous to start or had a treasure trove of fabrics and old clothes they didn't quite know what to do with.

And so, like a lightbulb moment, The Naked Craft Club was born! I believe that crafting should be easy, affordable, and, most importantly, fun. Whether it's turning your old wardrobe cast-offs into something amazing or embarking on a new sewing adventure, my mission is to help you embrace the joys of sewing, without breaking the bank.

But it's not just about crafting; it's about community. Crafting has this wonderful way of bringing people together, and that's what I'm all about. So, let's thread our needles, snip our fabrics, and sew our way to a world of creativity, sustainability, and good old-fashioned fun. Welcome to The Naked Craft Club โ€“ where we craft, connect, and celebrate the magic of making! ๐Ÿงตโœจ

*Proud Moment*

One of my proudest crafting moments was creating the bridesmaid dresses for my own wedding 9 years ago. Let me tell you, it was a whirlwind of stress, laughter, and lots of love. Seeing my gorgeous sister and friends strut their stuff in my creations made every stitch worth it.
