Kym's Biography


Kym lives on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia and is an internationmal speaker, teacher, author, co-inventor of sewing related products and together with Ann Duncan, they own The Sewing Revolution Pty Ltd.


Kym and Ann have presented and taught extensively in Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and the United States.  They have been invited to present and teach for most of the major sewing machine manufacturers.  They have appeared in many magazines as contributors and have had profiles done on them and their work.  They are ruler designers for Creative Grid USA and proud to be part of that family.


They combine patchwork, quilting, applique' and machine embroidery together with amazing results.  Their work speaks for itself and is of an exceptonal and original quality.


They are constantly devising new methods and rulers for all aspects of sewing and will continue to do so.  They have now invented several different rulers that save time and effort when doing patchwork, quilting,  machine embroidery and applique' placement.


Their first book, an Instruction Book on the use of The Sewing Revolution, is about to go into a seventh reprint.  Infinity Quilt has been very successful, being sold worldwide and was reprinted in 2013.


They are both passionate and enthusiastic about their craft and love to share the secrets to sewing learned along the way.  Their mission is to inspire and motivate sewers, quilters and patchworkers in creating beyond anything they dreamed possible.


You are guaranteed to not only learn from this presentation but also to be entertained and to leave with a smile on your face.


Knowledge is nothing if not shared with others.
