Our Team

JillJill

I have owned Cottage Flair for the past 20 years and my passion for patchwork and quilting keeps growing every day! I love fabric colour, textiles and girly things, my business and inspiring people to give patchwork a go.

At Cottage Flair we are continually growing and creating fresh ideas to motivate. I believe that good style, product and displays make a difference in attracting customers and inspiring them to want to make quilts and craft. Cottage Flair is a place that is fun, has a warm friendly atmosphere and helpful service. I have a team of wonderful girls who are very dedicated to Cottage Flair. I have 7 beautiful grandchildren which I am sure will follow in their granny’s footsteps with sewing, well at least the girls will! My Pfaff sewing machine is my ‘best friend’ and I also enjoy gardening, knitting, clothes, jewellery and my home life.

I am married with three children and grandmother to four.

I have sewn for as long as I can remember with learning to sew on my nana’s sewing machine and making dolls clothes.

In later years I moved on to dress making for myself and others.

Since Cottage Flair was born I have made many different crafts and over the last eight years have done lots of quilt making which has been very rewarding.

TracyTracy

Having only dabbled in patchwork many years ago I was reintroduced to the craft in 2008 when I was asked to join a quilting group who met on Thursday evenings at Cottage Flair.

Once I started I was hooked and now always seem to have several projects on the go at once.

I love bright bold textiles and vintage fabrics. I have a passion for reclaiming and up-cycling fabrics, clothing, quilts, blankets, almost anything that could reappear as a new quilt – it is amazing just what can be made beautiful again with a little effort! As well as enjoying a renewed interest in patchwork in 2009 I also started working part time at Cottage Flair bringing my skills of financial and office administration to the team.

SuzieSuzie

Hello, my name is Suzie and I work for Cottage Flair assisting with quilt show and casually in the shop. I have a passion for sewing, stitching, anything really that involves craft. I have been sewing my own clothes since the age of 13, but in later years discovered patchwork and quilting. I managed a fabric shop for some years and then went to work for Jill at Cottage Flair.

I have been quilting for 16 years and am always surprised at how much there is still to learn. I love to make quilts and recently have taken to quilting my own.  I have also enjoyed a bit of machine embroidery. I love to help people put their quilts together, and especially to see the end result and the joy each person gets out of the finished item.   I started embroidering when I was 10 years old and still enjoy cross stitch, tapestry and dress making.

ShirleyShirley

Hi my name is Shirley and I work for Cottage Flair as a tutor, designer and casually in store. Threads and fabrics have always been a big part life as a child. Consequently my working life lead me into ladies fashion and bridal wear then later teaching textiles at secondary level.

Quilting came into my life around 20 years ago and I still love the journey of learning new things and meeting like minded people. I love to share my work, so I regularly enter challenges and exhibitions where I have been lucky enough to win some awards and sell a few quilts.
