Mernio Wool Hoodie and Leggings Set 1 Fresh Stitch PatternsHi, I’m Kylie! I’m the face behind Fresh Stitch Patterns.  I’m a mum to two fantastic, amazing and inspiring children. Since having children I have rediscovered my love of sewing, making, cooking and being generally creative.

At the end of 2016 I made the decision to close my pattern shop.  I found that I was sending to much time thinking about sewing and less time actually doing it.   I had all these pattern ideas and just no time to do any.  So sporadically I closed down Fresh Stitch Patterns.  During the last 6 months I have had time to relax and sew things for my family.  I realised that really this is all I want to do… with no pressure just for the fun of it and if pattern is produced along the way yippee.

So with this in mind, I have redesigned the website to reflect this.  I want to concentrate on blogging about the things I’ve made, not only in the sewing room but also the kitchen, renovations and garden.
