Organiser Sew This Pattern

Organiser of Learn to Sew - Introduction to Sewing

Hi, I’m Annie!  

A sewer, designer, mum & partner. I live in St Kilda ,Melbourne with my partner and two tweenage boys.

I  have been sewing and designing since I was a teenager. Being one of seven children my mum thought it would be a great idea to teach me how to sew at a very early age and I’m so happy she did. I developed a love for fashion immediately and have never looked back working most of my life in the Fashion Industry.

In my twenties I moved to Canada for a few years where I studied Fashion Arts in Vancouver and  was really inspired by the street style and unconventional designers there.

In 2015 I created "Sew this Pattern"  a website providing downloadable sewing patterns for sewers that are exciting and directional. 

After many enquires about sewing lessons, I opened my sewing studio in Elsternwick where I teach sewing lessons and workshops from beginners to the more advanced sewers.  

You can see more of my work on my website www.sewthispattern.com or check out my instagram page to see what I've been sewing lately @sewthispattern

I hope to sew with you soon!

Annie
