We are a brick and mortar stitching store, stocking boutique ranges of fabric, yarn and accessories. We have created custom designed sewing and knitting class spaces, giving you a beautiful and friendly environment to learn in. We have online learning options coming soon.
Meet the Team:
At The Stitching Room we have a small team of women with a diverse range of skills and experience, covering all things that involve stitching.
Hi, I'm Clare and I am The Stitching Room founder. I'm a palliative care nurse by day and a stitcher by night. I love my day job and it's extremely rewarding. It's also stressful, so sewing and knitting, for me, is a way to unwind. I love being able to create something from nothing, and feel the textures of wool between my fingers as I knit and crochet. You'll see me in the store on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. I'm also here on Wednesday nights, learning to sew with Kerry.
Hi, my name is Therese, and I am The Stitching Room manager. I started sewing beside my mum when I was around four years old. Sewing and crafting have always been my passion, and I am very lucky to have it as my job. I've worked in the industry since I was 16 years old, so I have many years experience in sewing, retail, teaching and machine knowledge. I love what I do and look forward to helping you. I'm in the store most days, and you'll always find me here on a Tuesday night running the evening Sew and Support Classes. “ A mistake is an opportunity for a design feature”.
Hi there, my name is Toni, and I am a long time lover of colour and fibre. My colour journey began early as a child playing with coloured yarn and threads while my Grandmother was knitting, crocheting or sewing. When I was four years old, she commenced teaching me how to knit, then crochet at six years old, and somewhere in the middle I began to sew. During my school years the only classes I did well in were ones that involved colour, fibre, design and food (of course). As a qualified trainer and assessor, I am keen to pass on what I have learned through my years of working with fibre. I love to inspire people to slow down and appreciate the process of handmade items; providing a beautiful relaxing space to teach and learn in. Looking forward too much happy creativity. You'll find me here at the Knit & Support classes.
I started sewing and craft at a young age. I made craft items to sell at the school fete, and most pattern ideas I copied from the things I saw around me. I went to university, but I changed my mind and decided to try pattern-making. I enjoy the challenge. Working in the fashion industry gave me a lot of knowledge about fabrics, garment construction and sizing. I really enjoy sewing and making clothes for myself and my family. I'm here at varying times throughout the week, but you'll always find me at the Wednesday evening Sew & Support class.
