One of my Favourite pets
While growing up in Mount Isa, I tried and enjoyed many crafts. During school holidays, I especially enjoyed visiting my Aunt Margaret, who is a professional dressmaker.
It wasn't until after I began a family that I found needlework an excellent way to relax and de-stress. Not that I had a lot of spare time with 2 baby boys within 13 months.
I have memberships with several guilds and enjoy attending many various groups, within these guilds, as my business takes me around Australia.
While talking with fellow needle worker, I was asked to make some of my items for them too. They encouraged me to sell at our Guild Craft Fair and thus Every Sewer Needs began.
