About Tough Kitten Crafts

Is hotelfie a thing Cause it should be

Hi! I’m Kate, your teacher, and I used to suck at embroidery.

Kate Toney is a Florida based machine embroidery expert. In addition to running her own online machine embroidery education site Kate is also an expert contributor on  WeAllSew, Aurifil educator through their “Aurifilosphy” program and has written several articles for Creative Embroidery Magazine.

A former makeup artist and hairstylist Kate found her true calling when she discovered BERNINA machines and the world of sewing, long arm quilting and, most beloved of all, machine embroidery.

Upon creating her company Tough Kitten Crafts,  it became Kate’s mission to empower sewists to move from frustrated to fearless with machine embroidery via online education. When Kate isn’t hosting embroider-a-longs or developing new online classes, you will find Kate binge watching new tv shows with her boyfriend, Brad, or finding new recipes to cook up.

You can follow Kate on Instagram at @ToughKittenCrafts or check out her blog on ToughKittenCrafts.com where she has a multitude of resources for all levels of machine embroiderers.
