Hello rainbow craft friends,
This is the story about Kimberlie and the bright beautiful craft and kits you find at Bright Crafts.
As a parent of a young boy, I didn’t want him wearing clothing featuring skulls or being free advertising billboards for multinational companies. While organic clothing attracted me, the colours were drab and bland. I learnt the art of Tie Dyeing in 2006 and created bright colourful clothing that he loved to wear.
Soon his friends were asking their parents to buy them some of Kimberlie’s Tie Dye t-shirts too! In Autumn 2007 I held my first market stall at the Artisan’s Market at Linuwel School. It was a stunning success, with children changing into their t-shirts even before leaving our stall! I founded Magic Starfish in 2007. The range soon expanded to include dresses, skirts, aprons, tea-towels, pillow cases and bags.
Over the years I have worked in numerous industries, but craft has always been my passion. I left the Magic Starfish partnership and established Bright Crafts after seeing a deep need for children, teenagers and adults to be able to explore and express their creativity in fun and easy ways. We create Bright Crafts Kits help make quality textile crafts more accessible.
