About Us


Greetings to my fellow craft lovers, and welcome to my website. My interactive website is a portal for you to discover bespoke patterns and knitwear for all occasions. All my designs are handmade and created to last a lifetime. Each pattern is accentuated with vibrantly fresh colours, perfect for adorning your everyday essentials. I utilise a blend of natural textures inspired by our beautiful country and predominantly Australian yarns when handknitting my products.

An Interactive Website

You may be wondering how my website interactive? Well, through the website, I offer exclusive knitting and crochet workshops straight from my studio to the comfort of your home!

You can rest easy knowing that you are in safe and experienced hands as I have an extensive background in this industry. This includes writing, knitting, and crocheting patterns for magazines (and retail), as well as having written twelve successful educational knitting and crochet books that have been featured by the New Holland Publishers. I have also regularly curated designs for Australia’s Yarn Magazine.

Start your Knitting Journey!

Learn all my tricks of the trade and insightful techniques that help people of all skill levels, from the fresh creative newbie to the experienced crafty veteran, achieve stunning results! I hope to not only offer something for everyone but also create a community that brings like-minded individuals together, lifting our spirits and, most importantly, spending time together doing what we love- knitting as a community.

You can choose from a selection of different designs based on your level. Please have a look at some of our community’s bestselling patterns and design workshops below. You will receive everything you require to complete the garment in advance of the workshop. I hope you have a wonderful time perfecting your knitting techniques, and do not forget to share all your designs using the hashtag #DROPSTITCHDESIGN.
