Episode 10


Imagine picking up your life and moving to another country. That’s exactly what Annie Stafford recently did.

She packed up all her sewing gear, hopped on a plane from New Zealand and made Australia her new home. In this episode Annie and I talk about the big move to Australia of course, attending Melbourne Frocktails, expanding her pattern line Ford Wardrobe and possibly even starting a YouTube channel to help people build their sewing confidence. Oh and we also talk about her hilarious Instagram reels. I can’t stop watching them!
