If you’ve landed on this page it’s probably because you’d like to know a little more about me… so here goes.
My name is actually Christine but I prefer Chris. I’ve been sewing since I was 8yrs old… geez that’s awhile ago. I was born in 1966… now you know how ‘young’ I am LOL. My first sewing machine was battery operated and I made countless outfits for all my dolls and then started sewing my own clothes. When I was around 9yrs my mother updated her sewing machine and gave me her old well-loved Bernina. I was so excited! I thought I was all grown up sewing with a real sewing machine and I haven’t stopped sewing all these years. There have been times during my life when I have sewn all my own clothes and other times just some of them. Sometimes they were from necessity and other times just for the love of sewing.
I formally studied fashion design and pattern making and loved it and to this day I continue researching, testing and experimenting, and keeping up to date with the latest techniques. Sewing to me is a life long love that I don’t believe will ever end for me. It’s a major part of who I am and what I love doing both for myself and for my wonderful customers.
My home town is in Brisbane in Australia’s sunshine state of Queensland and I love it!
I’m happily married and have been with the man of my dreams (Grant) since I was 22 which I am forever grateful for and always will be.
My hubby is a little shy (not like me) and would rather that I didn’t share a picture of him but I just had to sneak one in LOL.
