Dressmaking, Alterations and Decoration Service

My name is Bernadette Thomas, trading as Needlewitch (ABN 43 950 367 267), and I am a qualified custom dressmaker and dressmaking teacher. I also provide a decoration service and am a proficient machine and hand embroiderer. My business is GST registered and I can provide a tax invoice for my services. I am fully insured. I opened my dressmaking business in 2004 - working from home and then from my own premises in Fyshwick (ACT), before moving to Kingston in August 2016 to be co-located with the Cardif Collective.  I now live in Rostrevor in Eastern Adelaide and work from home - strictly by appointment.  Please see my Dressmaking page for more information.

I am an active embroiderer and beader and have also trained formally as a dressmaker (CIT Canberra 2004). I am currently completing a Bachelor of Creative Arts (Costume Design) with TAFESA and Flinders University.  I am a member of a number of specialist needlework and sewing interest groups. I have taught dressmaking on the Garment Production Course at Reid Campus at CIT and have taught at a number of stores in the Canberra, the South Coast of NSW and now Adelaide since 2005.  I am happy to travel to teach group classes or individuals - please contact me for a quote if you are interested.

I have in stock a wide range of coloured fold over elastics, stretch trims and laces, rayon seam binding, top quality English made satin bias bindings, Swarovski flat back and glue on hot fix crystals, sequins, quality haberdashery and other decorations/accessories and bling.
