Meet the team
My passion for crafting began over eight years ago when I retired from my career due to health reasons.
I began making greeting cards and once I was selling more than I could manage alone my sister Viv joined me. Next step was opening our wonderful shop and starting our workshops.
I don’t have a passion for one particular craft but I have a keen eye for detail and will spend hours finishing and perfecting something. I find crafting calming and theraputic.
I am the joint owner of Kookies Craft and my daughter owns The Oven Door bakery above us (we really are a family business).
Crafting is something I have done most of my life, from school projects to teaching one to one workshops. Crafting is stress free, therapeutic and self satisfying and I truly believe anyone has the ability to craft.
One of my biggest crafting passions is Powertex and I am a register stocklist and trainer of Powertex.
Also part of the family, Viv is my mother in law. I assist Kookies with social media, marketing and the website and I run my mindfulness and craft workshop for parents and their little ones out of Kookies Workshop.
I have always been creative and did a Fashion & Textiles with Business degree. After having my daughter in August last year I have fallen back in love with crafting and creating. I think its the perfect mindfulness activity and like Viv I love that it is accessible for everyone.
