Hi there, I'm Natalie
mama, author & creative maker
I'm a mama of 3 children and creative maker of all things magical, living in the beautiful hinterland on the east coast of Australia.
My ebook Magical Birthdays for Children: A guide to creating wholehearted & mindful celebrations has offered inspiration & creativity to thousands of parents around the world.
My interest in hand stitching started when I was a child - inspired by my mum and both my grandmothers who sewed....and I have been hand sewing little treasures of all kinds ever since!
I believe that prioritising our creativity is essential to our wellbeing & living a full & beautiful life....It's so easy for us to get caught up in the monotony of everyday (especially when we're in the season of motherhood) but I'm here to help you make time to nourish your soul with some creative making!
Hear from our Members
Women just like you, who have learnt the magical art of hand sewing
helped me grow creatively
"I've been a part of The Sewing Circle since it first began in 2021. It has helped me grow creatively in so many different ways and allowed me to be a part of a community filled with so much support, inspiration and magic. Since being a part of The Sewing Circle I have prioritised creative time for myself as well as developed my sewing skills and I've made so many beautiful things for my children. I love logging on each month and scrolling through all the amazing workshops, I'm always filled with so much inspiration."
Joining Natalie's circle has been the best gift I've given myself as a mama!
"The membership is packed full of whimsical workshops, everything your heart could desire! I love being able to search through the library finding the perfect project for the season, holiday or celebration. Natalie’s tutorials are very easy to follow (I had minimal sewing experience prior) and quite quickly I was learning so many new skills and creating beautiful handcrafted treasures for my child.
Joining the circle has nourished my soul, filled me with so much confidence, given me permission to create time for things that light me up and has connected me on such a deeper level to the mother I want to be. Forever grateful!"
Natalie helps me see the beauty in simplicity, in the small things made with love...
"Natalie is like a kind friend, gently leading me to sew & create within the season of motherhood. One of the things I love most about the Sewing Circle is that I don't feel pressured at all - Natalie works so freely that you can do things your own way - the idea is not to master a technique, but to have fun and make beautiful things for our children. My daughter has loved everything I made for her so far. The Felt Flower Crown was one of my favourite projects, it was a delight to make and my daughter looked so beautiful wearing it.
Natalie helps me see the beauty in simplicity, in the small things made with love...this is not usual in such a loud world. I'm thankful for her, and for being part of this community."
I absolutely love being a part of The Sewing Circle
"I absolutely love being a part of The Sewing Circle - I eagerly check my inbox for emails from Natalie telling us about the next project!
Crafting brings me balance, joy and a way to remove myself from reality and Natalie’s tutorials are so calming and easy to follow. Some of my favourite makes have been teeny tiny turtles, star babies, and standing dolls (I’m in love with my tangelo flower doll). I extend a huge amount of love and gratitude to Natalie for all the magical experiences she brings to the circle each month."
words from members...
“I just love what each month brings”
Hi Natalie, may I just say, your sewing circle has brought absolute light into my life, and my sons, and my husbands! Thank you, I shall eventually do a post of all the goodies I've been making each month. I just love what each month brings, and your heartfelt chats are something I truly look forward to. And to think I couldn't sew 5 months ago! My dearest and oldest friend told me about your circle, and I trialled it for a month, and I just am so peacefully hooked now for the indefinite future! I love what you do. Much love, Alana
“has been so amazing for my mental health & self esteem”
I just finished my cupcakes & wanted to show you the finished set! I have never been a sewer or remotely crafty since I found your Instagram a couple of months ago and now I’m absolutely hooked. My two girls are almost 2 and 8 months and both home with me - my time to myself is veryyyy limited at the moment. So the sense of accomplishment from learning new skills and making a little project from scratch has been so amazing for my mental health & self esteem. So thank you SO much!!

love notes from members
"This is what I've been looking for my whole life!"
Natalie I want to send you a sincere thank you for bringing this sewing club to life. As I sit here making a star baby, I am finding myself thinking, "This is what I've been looking for my whole life! Simple, lovely handmade gifts for family and friends that are beautiful and fun to make!" I'm thoroughly enjoying your workshops and the lovely wind chimes in the background of some of your videos! The sounds of the chimes are beautiful just like your projects! Thank you Natalie, very, very much!
"I love the community of being among other creative souls"
When I saw Natalie’s sewing circle it just touched that spark and I immediately signed up for her waitlist. I’ve been playing with felt/wet felt and watercolors on my own and with my daughter, but I love these tutorials! And I love the community of being among other creative souls! I’ve started with story dolls and hopefully I can get a few sweet little strawberries done in time for the kids Christmas stockings. Anyway, it’s really lovely to be here with all of you!

“SO THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART FOR LIGHTING THAT SPARK IN ME AGAIN.”
“Thank you so much! I am so excited to create some birthday magic for my little girl. You didn't only gift me with the items but you have given me something much better, the inspiration to dive into my creative mind again and I am so happy! I am quite a creative person and since having my two little ones I had lost that part of me. So thank you from the bottom of my heart for lighting that spark in me again. ”
