Hi. My name is Marcia.
My passion for many years has been working with
fabrics in a variety of creative ways, both with hand
and machine. I have numerous creations, including
a number which have won awards as well as gaining
recognition in national publications such as
Down Under Quilting magazine.
You can see some examples of my patchwork here.
I used to own a shop called Patchwork Pantry in Mermaid Beach on Australia's beautiful Gold Coast. Patchwork Pantry had over the years evolved from being principally a sewing machine reseller and repairer to a provider of fabrics and expert advice in the fields of quilting and machine embroidery. Patchwork Pantry was an authorised distributor for Pfaff, Brother, Janome, Babylock and Horn cabinets.
I unfortunately had to close the shop in March 2009
due to family reasons and moved back 'down South'.
The up-side for me is that I have relocated to a large
space which enables me to focus on more creations.
The up-side for you, my past and potentially-future
patrons, is that I have a large amount of patchwork
material, sewing and embroidery machines, and sewing
accessories which I'm selling at discounted prices. I will
also continue to post more items online of potential
interest to you, although the 'what' will vary from
As always, my objective remains to share my enthusiasm
with you and hopefully maximise your enjoyment in creative
