Hello My Creatives!

I 'm Chris

Gardening has been a driving passion in my life, which led to my career as a garden writer and author for the past fifteen years. That said, for decades I've been neglecting this undeniable pull to share my other lifelong obsessions surrounding sewing and handcrafts.

So, we're gonna do this right here. This is the website where I make the leap into helping creators make all the things using their hands and their hearts.

Makers gotta make, am I right? For creatives like us, making stuff brings joy to our hearts and soothes our souls like nothing else can. At Hold My Coffee {I gotta make this}, we scratch that itch daily. We're top-tier enablers loaded up on caffeine. We've got your back.

Here at Hold My Coffee, we believe that perfection is an illusion. We encourage you to go 'off-pattern' and make it authentically you!
