After 25 years of creating new designs and promoting them on this website Jenny has opened an Embroidery Boutique in Adelaide to display her diverse range of beautiful projects. The heritage building is located in a leafy street only 5-minutes from the Adelaide CBD on the corner of (31) Payneham Road and Marlborough Street at College Park.

Jenny is very excited to be able to present her own designs within the 'Gallery' style layout of the shop. In addition to her kits, she has a selection of upmarket fabrics, threads, notions and needlework accessories to suit Stitchers wanting to create their own special projects. Her emphasis is on quality merchandise and she will be looking to find unusual and unique items for her customers.

There is plenty of 2-hour parking in Marlborough Street, which is a wide tree lined street close to the front door of the shop.

During the first 3-weeks after opening many local residents and stitchers from interstate and within South Australia have commented on how wonderfully unique the store is - like stepping back in time.


All workshops for 2016 have now been conducted. A 'Stitching Together' timetable is now being completed for 2017, which will include classes at 'THE BOBBIN TREE' during the day and evenings.

Along with Jenny's sessions, Store Manager Monique Johnston will be holding classes on Monday mornings commencing in the new year. Please log onto 'THE BOBBIN TREE' website and sign up for the Newsletter and we will keep you fully informed of upcoming classes.

Please note that Jenny will be holding her first 'Stitching Together' class on Thursday 5th January 2017 from 10 - 12.30. For details and to make a booking please email

Happy Stitching!
