Fran, Kath and Sue are the heart of Cut Above Arty Crafts.
Sue and Kath are sisters (siblings, not nuns) who share a large,
rambling house along with Sue's daughter, the inspiration behind the
'Boo' range of paintings. Kath is a graphic designer by trade and Sue
is a costume designer. Fran is the crafter in the group... and we are
an arty crafty lot!
When we met we all thought "Hey... kindred spirits!". Fran
is the crafting guru! If Sue and Kath need crafting terms explained
(often!), Fran is the girl and it is a constant source of amusement
to her how quickly Sue and Kath 'glaze over' with confusion or
amazement at what crafters can do. Of course, Sue and Kath are now
taking quite a bit of stick from Fran about how it has all taken over!
We started out by using our artwork to create cards for our own use,
but we then decided to share it... and so Cut Above was
born. We enjoy coming up with themes that incorporate 'Boo' and her
cats, and 'Mo' and his dogs Mooch and Mop, but we are planning other
ranges that draw on our experiences in the fields of art, design,
costume and crafts.
Of course this means we will be holding lots of 'planning meetings',
which usually take place on a Friday evening, and incorporate lots of
laughter, wine and chocolate.
