Hi there! Yep it’s one of those ‘About Us’ pages. Here goes…
Hi, I’m Nic Vaughan, a 40 something year old heading to 50 who’s discovered her life’s passion ‘late’ in life. I have always told myself I couldn’t support myself financially via a creative medium. It’s not just about money of course but, you know a gals gotta pay her mortgage.
So 2021 I’m stepping out with a plan and am putting my designs out there… with a good dash of shyness and trepidation but also a dollop of courage and why the heck not. If 2020 taught me anything it’s that life is short and I need to suck it and try… so I here I am, not sucking no, but giving it a good hot crack!
Oh yeah about the quilting… I LOVE scrappy quilting and handwork. Hand piecing, needle turn appliqué and hand quilting are my jam. My designs will be a mixture of those techniques as well as patterns that you can also sew on the machine.
For the curious types, I live in one of the most isolated cities in the world, Perth, Western Australia, Australia with my partner and our four fur kids (a pug and 3 kitties). Aside from quilting I love to cook, workout inconsistently (so I can sit and quilt!), watching movies as well as breakfast out with friends (depending on pandemics of course!).
I also work in Social Media for a media agency as well as managing a couple of my own clients, in particular, Make Modern Magazine.
