Designer and maker Kate Kingham has been sewing her knitted, felted fabrics into stylish home and fashion accessories since 2004.

Kate makes knitted animals, lucky keyrings, hot water bottles, cushions, lavender birds, festive decorations and greetings cards.

The cheeky knitted animals began with Cosmo the Cat in 2013.

Graduating from Brighton University, Kate has designed fashion knitwear for many years, selling her designs in the USA, Europe and Japan.

Kate has always had an interest in making as well as designing.

Lucky Stitch pieces start with a few beautiful coloured yarns and a vintage knitting machine.

Once the fabric is finished, Kate creates animals including cats, owls, rabbits, dogs, penguins, koalas. Each animal is a truly unique and handmade art collectable or heirloom gift for a lucky someone.

Kate has been selling her work at Brighton Artist Open Houses (held each May and December) for over a decade, most recently at Milton House, The Secret Garden at 142 and the One Must Dash pop up design sales.
