Bindi Cottage- Eileen Emery, Toowoomba Qld
Eileen spent her early life growing up on a vineyard on the outskirts of Roma, Qld, and remembers from an early age learning how to knit and sew. She learnt to sew on her mother’s treadle machine making dolls clothes from patterns she drafted. When she moved to Wallumbilla, she started dressmaking for her children and local people. She is now retired and enjoy her busy life, but makes sure she finds time to do her sewing and crafts each day.
