About me

Hello and welcome!!


August 27th, 2009 was the day that I first slouched in front of a sewing machine and sewed two pieces of calico together with a straight stitch. From that moment I fell in love with all things sewing and fabric and I spend my waking hours fantasising about what I'm going to make next.

Baby Julia circa 2009 wearing my first ever me-made dress, on the day when I first got my own sewing machine! Look at the happiness!

I live in beautiful Melbourne, Australia and I'm mother to two gorgeous boys aged 4 and 1. When I'm not sewing like a crazy lady, or hyperventilating in fabric stores, I like to go running, salsa dancing, indulge in a good book, knit and be merry.

I married Mr. Bobbin in October 2011 who supports my sewing craziness and knows how to use a seam ripper! True story! Possibly also the moment I knew he was the one. His name is Robin and I'm working on convincing him to change his surname to 'Bobbin'. Because: Robin Bobbin.

I created this blog to document my sewing obsession journey and to create an environment where I can mingle with other like minded sewing enthusiasts, sharing tips, knowledge and inspirations.

I love having a good old chat, so if you have any questions please feel free to email me at julia@juliabobbin.com


Thanks for reading!
