All About Katie

Hellooo! I'm Katie Canavan - all-around artsy lady. I compulsively sew, knit, draw & paint. I love remaking old things and giving them new life - from an old bookcase to a vintage sheet. I love to shop at thrift stores and have a huge collection of vintage dresses, old brooches & paint-by-numbers.


In addition to textiles, I am an actor and director. I'm also a musician who loves the challenge of learning a new instrument - currently it's my accordion

Find me online here:


I'm half of Red Letter Day Stitches, where embroidery patterns are always in season! Keep up with us at
