Born in California, USA, moved to England when she was 15. Did all creative A-levels at Backwell School, then London to do a BA(hons) in Illustration at Camberwell College Of The Arts (UAL). She's always been interested in retail craft shops, in fact with a Mum who was always in Quilting stores, some of her earliest memories are rearranging the 'fat quarters' of fabric into rainbow order. Colour and art has always played a large roll in her life. In 2008 (during her A-levels) Kim was diagnosed with CFS/ME (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome). Since then she's been trying to learn how to live with an illness/disability and still do something she loves. Knitting and Spinning became a kind of therapy for her (especially knitting because you can knit in bed!) and since then it's been a journey filled with fibrey goodness!
