Crafty Quilters started as a passion from a 5-year-old child being given her first Singer 99 hand cranked sewing machine. My aunts were crafty ladies and as a young child, I was encouraged to sew, knit, crochet and do many other crafts. One of many aunts was a seamstress and taught me everything in sewing and importantly fitting of garments which is a skill not many may have. Now, as people are starting to make their own clothes this has put me in a very good position to help my customers.My love for crafts has never dwindled, it’s all I ever think about and always dream of my next project, the next quilt or the next garment I am going to make. Many years on, I met and married my husband David who’s always supported my love and passion for crafts, he even purchased the property called La Taniere in Upper Midvale Road so when I retired, I could finally do what I love full time but, as time went on, I couldn’t wait until retirement and I gave up my job as an Executive PA in financial services and opened up Crafty Quilters in La Taniere Upper Midvale Road full time.
Now I live the dream 😊
