Meet The Maker: Katie Jones

Crochet Queen Katie Jones was kind enough to guest host a workshop at our Earth Day pop up shop earlier in the year. While she was there, we couldn’t resist asking her a few questions….. enjoy!

What do you make?

Hiya, I’m Katie Jones and I’m a crochet designer.

Where are you from and where do you live now?

I’m from near Brighton, and now I live in Stratford in London

What’s your favourite fibre to work with?

My favourite fibre to work with is the ones I already have, I try to use up my scraps as much as possible, but I do love Tina Tape yarn.

How do you think craft can change the world?

I think craftings a really really important tool and I think it can change the world because we have such a connection with what we’ve made and also I just think we hold onto stuff more because we have a personal attachment to it.

What inspires you?

I tried to find inspiration in a lot of things, everyday things, but art is something I’m drawn to because I love colour and texture and pattern, so I love immersing myself in a gallery.

Knit or crochet?

Well, contrary to my insta handle which is @katiejonesknit, it’s always crochet.

What’s your favourite thing about being part of the Gang?

I love being part of the gang and this sort of crafting community because it’s so amazing to share your makes with other people, sharing skills, and it’s just a really good thing to bond over.

Who is your crafting crush?

My crafting crush and queen of who I love is Jane Eakin. She’s an australian knitwear designer. Anything she does I just think is amazing.

And finally, if you were going to be stranded on a desert island what would your luxury item be?

My desert island item would be some factor 50 because this skin is far too pale to be stranded without it!
