Wendy has a love for sewing, particularly dressmaking and it is a passion that she likes to share. Wendy has been sewing since I was 10 years old. She enjoys many aspects of sewing including clothing, home decor items, costumes, patchwork and quilting, lingerie, and machine embroidery.
Wendy holds Diplomas in Dressmaking, and Pattern Making & Drafting with the Brisbane Dressmaking Academy. She is also a Palmer Pletsch Fit teacher.
Wendy is a member of the Australian Sewing Guild Scenic Sewers - Beaudesert group and in 2008 attended the National Convention in Brisbane. This wonderful experience was a great learning and networking opportunity week. There are groups Australia wide.
In October 2015 Wendy embarked upon a new venture and purchased The Old Laravale School in the picturesque Scenic Rim. Sewing With Wendy operates from a dedicated Studio, The Audrey Room, within the old school. The studio is also available for community groups and with accommodation in the pipeline, the School will be able to run artists retreats in conjunction with her workshops.
