Kerrie is the face behind the home based business Kittyandzac. Kerrie lives on a small acreage block on the gorgeous South Coast of NSW with her husband, faithful k9 side kick Zac and her part Arab horse Shebah. The rolling green hills that then give way to the spotless clean beaches where many of you may have spent your summer holidays is the perfect place to raise a family.
This leaves Kerrie more time to focus on what she loves to do…. Create. Kittyandzac was born out of a love of creating beautiful things from Childrensware, Homewares, Childrens accessories, soy candles the list is endless in what she loves to dabble in.
Kerrie comes from a super creative family background of a Knitting Nanna, sewing mumma, gardening Grandfather and Father but most of her inspiration comes from the fabric itself, It seems to talk to her. Kerrie’s sewing studio is wall to wall fabric, piles of orders cut ready to sew, vintage wash baskets brimming with patterns, super large jars individually filled with coloured buttons.
Kerrie has been creating for as long as she can remember. First with a needle and a thread. Then at the age of 5, for her birthday she was given a teeny tiny sewing machine. This was most successful for making Ted and her “floppy doll” Fiona’s new clothes. Her love of sewing and what she calls “making stuff” blossomed and when her children came along she made 90% of their clothes. Kerrie’s business Kittyandzac kicked off about 7 years ago when she was asked to put some of her creations in a local Kids Boutique.
KittyandZac have so many wonderful items to choose from but the memory quilts and Teepees which are constructed entirely from the clients fabric which has some meaning for them and their family are my favourite. Quite often this fabric is nursery bedding, children’s clothing etc, Kerrie then create a memory piece just for them to love forever.
