I’m sharing today about the sister site to this one Sunflower Stitcheries, a website my Mum and I have been thinking for a few years. We did get it going but a had to take a hiatus due to a health issue. All sorted now and we’d love for you to go and have a look.We have some great ideas and will be releasing them when they are written up. Our premise is we wanted to have design that are beautiful, look pretty but that are also useful. We all have lovely things but how many are dust collectors? We want you to be able to use our projects and have fun with them. There are some great gift ideas and more coming.My quilting business was begun when Mum and I had many quilt tops that we needed to finish and I was also wanting to do more than be a Mum, nothing wrong with being a Mum, but I wanted to still be creating. My Mum helped me purchase my A1 Quilting Machine and I haven’t stopped since. I am extremely thankful to her for that and I owe her some quilting (quite a bit actually).Sunflower Stitcheries is a different direction and though I quilt on some of our projects they are meant to be able to be completed by anyone, using your embroidery and domestic sewing machine skills. I hope you head over and have a look and if you sign up for the newsletter, you’ll know when a new project is released. There are some tutorials and free patterns as well, we’d love for you to share your finishes on our Facebook page as well.In a couple of months in Australia it will be Mother’s Day and we can celebrate our Mums and all they’ve done for us. I am thankful my Mum is my friend, mentor, and business partner. Mum taught me how to sew and other crafts as well, but the sewing has stuck, and now we can design and collaborate together. The bonus of technology is that we can do this whilst being in 2 different states of Australia.
You might even find a project to make for your Mum at Sunflower Stitcheries. Mmm what will I do, seeing as my Mum is the main designer, perhaps I’ll do some of that quilting for her?!
