Hi my name is Carol, and I love fabrics. I have until recently worked as a legal executive, but have left the very regimented legal life for one of joyous creativity .... bliss.

Sewing is in my blood, and even my 96 year old grandmother is still stitching away, as does my mother and 26 year old daughter. Sometimes I wish I had more hours in the day to spend on my creations, I love to smock, quilt, sew clothing, crafts, dance costumes and uniforms, embroider etc etc.

I have a huge range of fabrics to draw on, so I can usually find what I want amongst my stash, but I can also be tempted by all the lovely quilt shops that are close by.

My husband and I live on a lifestyle block just out of Katikati where we run a few sheep and have a wonderful home orchard which provides some sort of fruit all through the year, from citrus, grapes and plums to guavas, tamarillos and figs. Our four adult children are busy with their lives, two living in Moscow and Brisbane and two in Cambridge and Katikati. We are blessed with five wonderful grandchildren and we look forward to the times we spend with them.

My philosophy in life is to treat others as you would like to be treated and give more than is expected of you at all times.

Regards Carol
