Meet the staff

Since opening the store in 1987 Sue and Sandy have had a very loyal and helpful staff.

Our combined sewing history must be well over 200yrs! We have all been sewing since we were girls so there’s lots of knowledge spinning around the place.

Sue Owner, teacher, machine expert and more. Sue is a long time patchworker and machine expert. You can ask her anything about sewing and if she doesn't know it she will find the answer for you.
