Just a little about us
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 was an excellent way to relax and de-stress. Not that I had a lot of spare time with 2 baby boys within 13 months.
When my boys were 9 & 10 years old, we were told that they had ASD.
While talking with fellow needle worker at the Embroiderer’s Guild Qld, I was asked to make some items for them. They encouraged me to sell my creations at the Guild Craft Fair and thus Every Sewer Needs began.
I’m a member of several guilds and enjoy attending many various groups, within the guilds, as my business takes me around Australia.
Where did our name come from?
Are you a person who sews??
You love to do needlework, quilt, design clothes, or embroider fancy designs on your jeans.
But how do you talk about your sewing hobby?
If you like to bake, you call yourself a baker. If you like to bike, you call yourself a cyclist.
What do you call someone who likes to sew?
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the correct term for anyone who engages in needlework is “sewer”.
One who sews is generally called a “sewer” (pronounced SOH-er). A word that’s been in English writing since the 1300s. The alternative, “sewist,” first appeared in the mid-19th century, and it’s quite popular on sewing websites.
