About us

Hi, I'm Kirsten (also known as Mrs Make and Do), a designer and maker who's passionate about creativity and fabulous fabrics. Based in Bristol with Mr Make and Do and our two children (the Mini Make and Dos).

Way back in 2010 my maternity leave from being a secondary school art teacher came to an end and having decided not to go back was itching to do something creative. Make and Do was born as an online shop stocking gorgeous fabrics with classes at venues around Bristol to inspire and enable people to get creative.

When I'm not making a mess with the Mini Make and Dos (pretty sure they have more craft stuff than I do) or jumping in puddles I'm drinking coffee whilst sourcing fabrics and trims for you to enjoy and designing things for you to make. I have also designed a range of simple craft kits that are available from fabric and craft shops.

You'll find Make and Do in our new home at Fairseat Workshops in Chew Stoke where we'll be holding regular open days and can be booked for private shopping for groups of friends and sewing groups.
