Welcome to Calicoclair

Hello and welcome to my first blog post. I thought I would use it to introduce myself to you all. My name is Clair and I am first and foremost Mum to 4 horrors (whoops did I say that out loud, I meant children). They range in age from 17 to 2. This is me with my youngest and only girl.


This is the four of them, all looking like butter wouldn’t melt (don’t believe it) as you can see it is a couple of years old now but my big one now works away so we don’t get many opportunities for family pics.


My hubby moves us around fairly frequently with work and so, although I have a 20 year background in nursing, I gave it up officially late last year to pursue my dream. I am the proud founder/owner of Calicoclair. I set Calicoclair up on Facebook a couple of years ago and have loved every minute of it. My passion is patchwork and quilting but I knit and crochet too. I am a proper home girl and nothing beats a spot of home baking and a good book. With the ratbags around, fitting in such pursuits can be a bit of a mission but hey a girl can dream.

I work around the children and hubby and am lucky enough to have my own sewing room in our current house. Fingers crossed we get to stay here for a while. Have a little peek at Calicoclair HQ, this is where you will find me most days. I will admit, it isn’t this tidy normally. I had only just unpacked.


My sparkly new website is now up and running if you would like to be kept up to date, click to subscribe to my newsletter here. I hope to see you all soon.
