Sewing, Fabric and Daydreams

Hello and welcome!
My name is Julia and I'm the owner, creator and designer behind Julia Bobbin!

I'm a mother of two gorgeous little boys and I have a fierce passion for sewing, fabric and design!

I've always been a left-brainer.
When I was growing up I threw myself into all things creative. I loved drama, dancing, singing and music. Where I lacked in talent I made up for in enthusiasm! I performed in local musicals, plays and had weekly piano lessons. I learnt swing dancing, salsa dancing (which is where I met my husband!) and learnt to knit. You name it, I've tried it!

But it wasn't until mid 2009 that I first started sewing. I had been daydreaming about a vintage outfit that I was desperate to own and couldn't find anywhere. I was suddenly struck with the idea that I could make it myself and went about the task of finding a sewing class. In August of that year I sat down to a sewing machine for the first time and it was love at first stitch. Never before in all my creative endeavours had I felt so connected! It had awakened a fiery, strong passion in me.

In 2011 I entered my first national competition, 'The Tessuti Awards' and entered a linen and lace dress that I had both designed and made. To my complete amazement I won first place!
That moment solidified in me that I had found what I truely loved to do. Fashion is a way of expressing your individuality and style. It is a way to make and express art on a platform that everyone can relate to; we all wear clothes!

I opened this shop as a way to feed my passion of creating, sharing and designing through slow fashion. Each item in my store has been lovingly designed and made by me with the hope that they bring joy when you wear them!

I hope you love your Julia Bobbin creation as much as I loved making it.
Thank you for stopping by and happy shopping!
