After receiving many requests from friends and then friends of friends for bags and purses she had made for herself and her sisters, Angela Young decided to start Craftmeup to turn her interest in sewing and textiles into more than just a hobby.
“Quite often I would pull out a purse or bag that I had created for myself based on what I wanted and friends would frequently ask where I had brought it or comment on the fantastic fabric I was using. My sisters who I often custom made items for as well were receiving the same comments and before I knew it Craftmeup was born due to the demand”
Angela always had an interest in crafts and creating from a young age, her first project being a skirt at the age of 11 after a few sewing lessons from her mum. She wore that skirt to school every day until it fell apart a few weeks later, her sewing skills have improved considerably since then!
Angela draws her inspiration from the unusual and stunning fabrics which she sources from a variety of locations. After buying the fabrics she usually leaves a swatch of if on her inspiration board and before long an idea forms for her item that would fit the fabric perfectly.
