TIED WITH A RIBBON

“Being able to quilt and sew all day as my ‘work’ is a dream.”

MY STYLE IS:

“Modern, with bright colours and textures of different fabrics, like linens and lawns. I love embellishing quilts by adding features such as hand stitching, ribbons and appliqué.”

NANNA TIME

“Some of my favourite memories from my childhood are the times I spent baking and crafting with my nanna. I used to spend hours with her, making cookies and sewing dolls’ dresses, and I think that’s where I developed my love for sewing.”

TRICKY TRICKS OF THE TRADE

“It is great to take shortcuts and learn new ways but it is about learning the right shortcuts that won’t compromise on the detail.”

“I have an underlying creative current I can’t ignore, and it pulls me along.”

MY STYLE IS:

“Over-the-top, playful yet sophisticated. All my projects involve a lot of stitching. I enjoy covering entire surfaces in stitches and don’t like to leave much cloth showing. Stitch is a celebration of the process, and what better way to celebrate than by adding more stitches?”

‘CRAFT TART’

“I’m a proper craft tart. I’ve had a go at card making, weaving, ceramics, silversmithing, beading, knitting, painting, printing, candle making, baking, um … and probably a few others I’ve forgotten about along the way.”

AN AFFAIR OF THE HEART

“I fall in love with each of my projects. But like all great love affairs, there are highs and lows: we argue, shed tears and rekindle our fondness for each other along the way.”
