About

How The Snow Queen's Garden grows

Once upon a time, there was a busy lady working long hours in a big dirty city. She had once worked in the ski fields of Australia and Austria, and longed once more for fresh air and snowflakes. Instead, her husband's job took her deep into outback NSW. Isolated and alone with a new baby, the once busy lady began stitching and sewing to meet some of the locals. And then, the husband's job moved again, back to his birthplace in Tasmania. It was here The Snow Queen's Garden really began to grow. The busy lady wanted lovely Christmas tree decorations that could withstand a toddler and a baby's rough handling. When her grandmother, from St Petersburg passed away, The Snow Queen's Garden was formally born.

Each piece is handcut and handembroidered with a careful eye and attention to detail that is typical of traditional European decorations. New items emerge each year, inspired by all the folklore the busy lady grew up with, and influenced by the natural beauty of the Tasmanian landscape. Each piece has a story, or a moment that has inspired its creation.

The name itself came, in part, from a Hans Christian Anderson version of "The Snow Queen". In one version, The Snow Queen steals a little boy Kay away from his village and childhood friend, Gerda. It is Gerda who embarks on an epic quest to save him, finally coming to the Snow Queen's palace. Even as a child, I never saw the Snow Queen as wicked, just lonely.

Like me, The Snow Queen's Garden is a work in progress - learning new skills and gaining the confidence to try something different, to not be defeated when it doesn't work the first time, or the second. I am grateful to have wonderful customers who have come on this journey with me, becoming supportive friends.
