"I have been crafting since I was a little girl, sewing and knitting clothes for my Barbie dolls. I made cushions and blankets to go in the Barbie Campervan. My mother taught me to sew and knit...then when I was about seven years old, my Auntie Jo taught me to crochet when we were on holidays in Queensland. I crocheted many squares that holiday and I still have them. One day I'll crochet them together!
I am a couture dressmaker, specialising in evening wear, tailoring, stretch and knit apparel, millinery and children's wear. I also did theatrical costume and worked for the Sydney Opera Company.
My love for knitting and crochet inspired me to make bags to keep my projects in. My father, a carpenter by trade, turned my garage into my gorgeous sewing studio, hence My Creative Garage was born. As I got more and more into knitting and hand-dyed yarns I couldn't find many bright colours available so I thought 'I'll dye it myself' - I had learnt at School of Fashion years ago. I had so much fun creating beautiful and bright colourful yarn that the rest is history, as they say!"
Each skein is individually hand dyed and one of a kind.
