I'm Claire Brown and I live near Glasgow, in Scotland. I founded The Bellwether (formerly known as Miso Funky) in 2005 - we make cross stitch homewares with a very modern twist as well as designing and producing kits and patterns. When I'm not cross-stitching, I write about craft and indie business, as well as being co-founder of the UK's most popular kawaii blog, Super Cute Kawaii. I also work as a production manager with a television company. I don't get much sleep.
