I am an Australian fabric tragic, a mother of 3, living in NSW.
I have been sewing since I was a teenager, with a need to wear the latest fashions and no way to afford them. Sewing was my answer. I have developed a love of beautiful fabrics and have been collecting them and imagining the creation of my ideas ever since .
I have always been a person who sews making numerous costumes for school plays .I have an incredibly supportive family and I let my fashion skills stagnate when my kids were young.
I am now taking the time to indulge my interest and aided by the challenge of the RTW FAST 2014 I started sewing up a storm. I have rediscovered how much I enjoy drafting and adjusting patterns for an original interesting final garment.
I am loving all the amazingly talented people I have found through the RTW Fast and online and have enjoyed restraining myself from shopping immensely, so I will again be a part of it for 2015.
Fast forward a few years and I have completed a Diploma of costume and a certificate 3 in Millinery . I still love creating and have no plan to stop .
Covid has changed our lives a bit , but creativity helps .
