My treasured Nana (Annie) and my wonderful mother of ten (Loretto) were both a huge inspiration to me during my early years when they both taught me skills and instilled knowledge to encourage me to have the passion and desire to design & create clothing as well as all sorts of other creative items.
Annie was a Tailor and taught me the need to have a garment that was as well made on the inside as on the outside! She would always check the workmanship of my creations as a young sewer thus instilling in me the need for excellent workmanship, if it was not good enough she certainly would let me know, " Suzanne that could be better", but her skills always came in handy when I was losing my cool because a sleeve would not sit properly! Her knowledge and ability to show me the best ways to do tasks was so much treasured.
Crochet was another particular art of my Nana's and my mum's and their skills and knowledge was passed down to me along with knitting and many other hand crafts, embroidery also been a loved art.
My husband and I have two boys and a daughter and when our three children were babies and toddlers I made a great deal of their clothing at a time when it was difficult to get unique clothing at a reasonable cost.
Today I am now a grandmother of a growing family, with seven wonderful grandchildren. I now have the desire to create some unique fashions for the little ones with a classical twist for the modern baby and to once again bring back my creativity and passion for design, fiber and workmanship.
I hope that my designs will be both unique and functional that can be handed down through your family as I strive for quality and workmanship. I preshrink the fabrics used(immerse in hot water which shrinks and confirms its colour fastness). I hand make all of the items myself, therefore creating, sometimes limited & unique items. I use a variety of fabrics but do prefer natural fibres such as cotton and merino. Linen is a favourite and a product called ponte (rayon/polyester/spandex)as Ponte holds its shape, because the fabric is tightly woven. It travels well, doesn’t fade and is super durable and comfortable.
I hope that you are fully satisfied with my products and your feedback is always welcome as I am here to design, create and supply what you, my customers want to purchase for your precious little ones.
Thank you &
