I’m Tanya. A stay-at-home-mum, home educator, wife, St John Youth leader/divisional manager, sewist and sewing instructor.

We are a team of 3. Chris, my husband who does is the backbone of my business; he takes care of the household tasks when I’m sewing. Niquitta, our daugther, who is not only my coffee girl, but also helps out wherever and whenever she can. She’s particulary good at find pins that have fallen on the floor.
We are all 3 very involved as a family and enjoy spending our time together. We are also involved with our local St John Youth division. Niquitta as a cadet, Chris as youth leader and me as divisional manager.

Being with St John means that I have a level 1 first aid certificate and am also police vetted and adhere to very strict child youth protection policies, some of which I have applied to the sewing session part of my business.

Sew Made By Me is a 2 part business.
The 1st part being Memory Buddies. These special bears, bunnies and dinosaurs are made from treasured fabric items. We also have a very special item for our Rainbow Babies in the form of a Rainbow, cloud and raindrops.
