Known in the Melbourne sewing and Instagram community for my love of knit fabrics, florals and fantastic fabric hoarding skills, I have been sewing seriously since early '09. When I'm not sewing, I organise sewing events, like starting the global trend #Frocktails, running Melbourne Frocktails from 2013-17, Sewaway and Melbourne Social Sewing.
Seamstress fabrics was born out of a love of good quality fashion forward fabrics in 2017. Finding high quality fabric with fabulous designs was a real challenge back then. So I decided to do the hard work and open an online store that showcases beautiful fabrics from around the world. I trust that you will love the beautiful designs I have handpicked as much as I do!
In 2019 we expanded so much we needed a purpose built studio, which was completed in November 2020, we now offer studio visits by appointment.
Seamstress Fabrics has changed a lot since its inception back in 2017. It's more than a part time job, but less than a full time job, it's balanced against my work/home/family life, it takes multiple people to run it successfully. We are grateful to the continued support of the sewing community, which in turns helps us support our local community with part time jobs.
