Peppergoose evolved as a creative outlet for my love of crochet and textiles, and subsequently became therapy for my soul.  It's a nonsense name of whimsy as I started this journey simply finding joy in working with modern luxurious yarns.  Along the way I found myself striving to make modern interpretations of crochet fashion and accessories.

I design crocheted garments and accessories from my home in the hills of Perth, Western Australia where I live with my husband Damien and our pets Bruce, Subi and Pax.


Crochet design has become a bit of an obsession over the last eight years or so, particularly crochet fashion!  I sell self-published patterns in my Ravelry Store & Etsy Store, and am a regular contributor to both Simply Crochet Magazine and Scheepjes pattern publications.  

When I was a child, my grandmother taught me how to crochet, my mother taught me how to sew and knit, and my father taught me how to draw.  This means I have grown up with too many hobbies to squeeze around my day job, but they are all coming in handy now to support my crochet addiction.  

I occasionally make custom orders.  I have made garments and a number of felt handbags for clients who value one of a kind pieces and the time invested in a handmade original design.  One must be in love with the fibre in order to love the finished garment (and there are so many to choose from)!  This a time consuming process and has to fit around my day job and pattern writing deadlines so there are no "rush" orders. I love to see a client's face light up with pleasure when it's delivered.
