Version 2

I’m a mum, wife and freelance writer living in gorgeous New Zealand.

I’m also fortunate to be part of the team at Papercut Patterns, helping with wholesaling and blogging. I sew with those patterns often (I’ve always been a fan) but I’m not paid to blog about them here and all opinions I share are my own.

I do try to mix things up and blog a variety of patterns and designers. I love all our independent designers who spend countless hours creating these patterns and feed our sewing habits. So to each one of you, thank you. I know it can’t be easy sometimes, but I am grateful. Sewing fills my happiness tank.

I also:

  • LOVE a good espresso. ‘Long black’ coffee please.
  • Have a curated fabric stash. It’s a small cupboard in the dining room which I gaze at often.
  • Would love to knit but learning is slow progress. One day I’ll make a jersey.


I sew with …

Mostly I use a cheap Brother PX300 which serves most purposes. I also have an old Singer Featherweight (she does incredible topstitching) and I use a vintage Globe M23a overlocker.

I shoot with …

I take my blog photos with a Canon EOS 700D, using a remote shutter and a tripod. Any photos prior to 2016, though, were just with an iPhone.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog and follow along.  The sewing community is a phenomenal bunch, so don’t be a stranger!
