A Little About Me

My name is Cassandra Karkkainen.

I am a dedicated left-handed needleworker.  I enjoy many traditional textile crafts.  Needlework, spinning, bobbinlace & weaving to name a few.

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.


Every Sewer Needs attends many craft shows throughout Australia.  With today's enviroment a bricks-n-mortar store may be a thing of the past.
