I was too impatient for sewing when I was younger – I threw a half-finished pair of shorts in the bin once because I’d made a (not even very big) mistake! Luckily, I grew out of that. Over the years I’ve enjoyed mastering sewing, quilting, various styles of needlework, bear-making and paper crafts. The extended COVID-19 lockdowns in Melbourne this year have given me ample time to flex my creative muscles, and now my wardrobe is full – but I don’t want to stop creating.

That’s how 5-PAX was born. 

Along with some creative friends, I hope to share with you the feeling of excitement that comes from finding the perfect materials to create something individual, beautiful and functional.
