My name is Heather Cashman. I was born in New Zealand but have lived in Queensland Australia since 1985. I have always had a sewing machine. I started off making clothes for my children when they were young, but of course, as they got older it was no longer cool to wear mums creations anymore and that’s when I ventured into the wonderful world of patchwork.
I have worked at Patchwork Paradise, Rockhampton, Queensland for six years now and love every minute of it. I came across my first Quiltworx pattern four years ago and the technique fascinated me. Once I got my head around it I was addicted. I have been teaching classes in the shop for the last couple of years.
My first trip to Melbourne to learn the BOM Paradise in Blooms gave me the opportunity to meet Judy Niemeyer herself (Big fan). It was loads of fun and she taught us so much, which in turn has made me more passionate and enthusiastic.
As an Australian Certified Instructor, I am committed to teaching others these techniques that give you great precision in your sewing and enable you to create very intricate creations using wonderful patterns.
Sorry, there are no classes scheduled for Heather Cashman at this time.
