Kerry Goulder

Kid Giddy

Kerry Goulder has been sewing for fun since she can remember. Kerry began designing many unique patterns under her Kid Giddy® label, wrote her first book, Sewing Tales to Stitch and Love: 18 Toy Patterns for the Storytelling Sewist and continues to sell and license her designs.

Kerry’s company motto is to “add more giddy to your life.” It’s a constant reminder to have fun and do things that make you happy, which, of course, means more sewing.

Kerry lives in Maine with her family, loves metalsmithing, running and training for her fourth degree black belt in Shaolin Kempo Karate.
