Meet the Team
Helle is something of a miracle-worker who keeps everything running smoothly in our East Lothian workshop. She’s also a keen forager and mushroom hunter!
Founder & Creative Director
Jo Lochhead is the founder of The Crafty Kit Company and a long-time craft fanatic. When not designing our kits, overseeing the running of the company, and looking after her family, you’ll find her enjoying her favourite Hitchcock films - probably with a cross stitch on the go!
Trade Accounts Manager
Fiona is our figures wizard, overseeing our bookkeeping and accounts, as well as looking after our trade customers. Her impressive collection of scarves and pashminas always bring a bright splash of colour to the office.
Content Creator & PR Contact
Rebecca’s mission is to inspire creativity through content, and she can’t quite believe how much fun she gets to have while managing our social media accounts! When not photographing our Nordic Gnomes out and about, you’ll find her with her head in a good book.
Felicity is our champion fabric-cutter – which is not surprising, given her background as a costume designer for the theatre. She’s also an amazing aerial acrobat!
Head of Customer Happiness
Our Head of Customer Happiness Anne is our official office octopus, turning her hand to any task to help our lovely customers! A baking enthusiast, she often spoils our lucky team with delicious cakes.
Mandy is our expert packer, sending out all of our customer orders and subscription boxes. When not wielding a roll of packing tape, she enjoys walking her dog, Dougie, in the countryside around East Linton, and spotting birds along the way!
Nicki is our chief yarn-winder. When not assembling kits in our workshop, she’s busy looking after her four daughters, and one grandson. She loves all kinds of crafts, including pom-pom making and needle felting.
Andy is our graphic designer, creating all of our beautiful packaging, labels, and trade catalogues. He’s also an artist, and when not working on our designs he’s at his happiest when creating his next artwork!
Chief Relaxation Officer
Morris takes his duties as Chief Relaxation Officer very seriously. He is particularly good at reminding the team when it’s time for lunch!
Ali & Wally
Chief Morale Boosters
We can’t help but be happy when Production Assistant Ali and her border collie Wally are in the workshop. Ali is also a talented artist and photographer.
Research & Development
Twiggy takes particular interest in any new kits that Jo is designing, and is often on hand to share his ideas on Research & Development!
