About me

Born in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia and studied interior design.

Lived in London, Los Angeles and Amsterdam.

Worked in London for many years and one of my biggest regrets was never travelling to Ireland to visit my Great Grandparents’ home town, (Hence, Lost Irishman).

Returned to Australia and lived in Sydney, continuing to work as an interior designer.

Now retired and live on the North Coast of NSW. Retirement means more time for sewing. Love to visit charity shops, finding sewing treasures, fabric, thread and vintage patterns.

Contracted Ross River Fever from a mosquito bite several years ago, which slows life down a little, it resulted in ME/CFS, I find sewing to be therapeutic.


I host a sewing group on Facebook, all are welcome to join us, we are a friendly group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/Mensewing/
