It feels like I have sewn forever! From watching my mother sew when I was a toddler, for myself, then for my family. With all that knowledge and practical experience I wanted to encourage and support others to take up the skills of sewing, plus I'm waiting for grandchildren to sew for!.

SEWNZ originated on one of my many ‘taxi’ rides for my daughters, always a great thinking time.

I wanted a challenge and decided to create designs and patterns for children’s clothes and at the same time support new sewers learning.

I love being able to offer the patterns and support and I am constantly amazed where the SEWNZ electronic patterns are going to and where in the world the YouTube video tutorials are being viewed.

It is the best feeling in the world, knowing your children are wearing clothing you made. Even when they are  27, flannel pj’s are still required!!!
