15 years in handmade soft furnishings from our little workroom nestled in the Beautiful Southern Highlands NSW Australia

Super proud to have a little niche business up-cycling people's furniture whether it be loose covers upholstery soft furnishings or a Cottage Chic Cushion mostly one of a kind recycled fabric pieced together by an artist ( my mother) and stitched together by me ...

Our Cottage industry is nestled in the beautiful Southern Highlands NSW Australia ... and with passion ... skill and design we work closely with our clients sew they enjoy the whole story ! Choice of fabric ... attention to detail and the final embellishments never go unnoticed !

Still with us ? Oh great thanks for hanging in there ... Lols

I guess my journey began when my careers adviser advised I would be good working in a factory ( great ) ( considering I wanted to work with my hands mmm )

Well where did I end up ? Yes working on a production line sewing women's fashion back in the days when we had manufacturing on shore . I actually did my traineeships there and leant a lot about manufacturing and speedy sewing !

Still interested in pursuing my sewing skills I moved onto other companies ! Dreaded stretch ware ( sorry ) didn't mind the raglan sleeve look though ! Then a little company called Peak Wetsuit on the Northern Beaches NSW sewing neoprene ... The cofounder designed his first wet suit by tracing around some ones body lol's next you know he had a hugely successful business and was bought out by another leading Wetsuit Company Ripcurl !

Long story short I've dabbled in a few Careers from making to hospitality ( which I guess is still making ... Food ) Running a very successful Bistro back in the eighties ... Teaching classical Ballet ( yes I love to dance ) ...
Eeek and then I end up sewing for a company designing Modular furniture leather and vinyl !
Which I dare say is probably why I've ended up here today working with furniture and interior design ! In my own semi pro workroom with my three wonderful industrial sewing machines cutting table the trusty scissors ... And the Apprentice !

Did I mention I'm a qualified florist too 🌻🍃🌾

Never to late to chase your dreams !

Thanks for stopping by !
