Clare AlbansClare Albans is a mama, maker and blogger living in Newcastle upon Tyne. A musician and teacher by trade, she found a creative outlet from her day job in crafting and now making is a huge part of her life. She started her blog, 'Hello! Hooray!', in 2012 to share a variety of craft projects as well as recipes and lifestyle posts.
Since becoming a mum in 2016 she has found a new focus and passion for embroidery, although 'Hello! Hooray!' still encompasses all of her creative endeavors. Her blog has been featured in publications such as Craftseller magazine and Bibelot Magazine (by author and crafter Chloe Owens) and Clare has also appeared on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour.
There is a successful 'Hello! Hooray!' Etsy shop which is the go-to place for colorful and fun modern embroidery and patterns.
