What do you love about running your own hand-made business?
It's all mine!! Being in control of creating from my own ideas and receiving the loveliest personal comments about my work.
What is your favourite product to make?
I started with my aprons and must admit I still love creating them.
How did you learn your craft?
Both my parents were tailors. My father owned a manufacturing business as well as being a tailor. My mother had her own business making for society ladies in 1930's or 40's Brisbane. My mother taught me to sew and wouldn't accept less than the best from my work.
What handy hints do you have for people who are starting up a hand-made business?
Believe in yourself and your abilities. Follow your dream. Start with a small range and test its success.
What plans do you have for your business in the next year?
I have many ideas in my head, but at this stage my aprons are still taking precedence.
Whats one thing you cannot live without in your hand-made biz?
I guess my sewing machine would be the practical part but it is nothing without my own inspiration taking a very important role.
