Liz is trained as a clothing patternmaker here in Australia and worked in the fashion industry for twenty years, mainly ladies wear.  She was fortunate to work at many interesting places with talented, inspiring people and you’ll hear about these workplaces in this podcast.  Now Liz lives in South Australia’s Clare Valley with her young family, where she’s re-discovering sewing for pleasure and we’re benefitting from this through her Zero Waste Sewing experience.

Liz originally authored of The Dressmaker’s Companion-A practical guide to sewing clothes, published in 2017.
