Hi, I'm Gretchen
I'm a self-taught sewist... I've had a bit of imposter syndrome, but I think I'm over it now. I'm proud to say I taught myself to sew while my baby, Willow, was about 8 weeks old. Finding myself stuck in the feeding chair for most of my day, I watched YouTube tutorials on making small pieces - and then &willow sort of all just happened.
I love creating and designing - when I'm not a mum, or a sewist, I'm a Drama teacher, a well-being coordinator, a professional organiser (you can check out my other biz over here), an actor, and a bit of a wild child.
I'm married to an absolute legend, Leon. He cooks all our meals (I'm a SHOCKING cook), he rides a skateboard, is covered in tattoos and is the coolest person I know. Sometimes he even cuts my fabric and threads scrunchies with elastic for me.
I'm passionate about social justice, female empowement, young people, and hot chippies. If you've made it this far through my little bio - thanks for sticking around. You're the real MVP.
I mean it when I say drop me a line - I love hearing from other mamas about what they'd like to see next from &willow.
There's something you should know...
You can choose your fabric from our online gallery, or let us know if there's something special you'd like. Unless it's made out of gold, it'll be the same price as everything else.
You can rush your order.
We do things a little differently here. It’s just one mum, at her dining table, with a bunch of beautiful fabric and a sewing machine - so there’s no bulk batching, there’s no warehouse full of stock. Almost everything is lovingly made to order.
We’re sure you understand, sometimes things can be tricky with a little one - so we need your patience. These are slow, thoughtful, hand-crafted items designed to last a lifetime. They are the bows she will wear for her first birthday party, the bib he will wear for his uncle and auntie’s wedding, the scrunchie you’ll put in because you still haven’t had a chance to wash your hair 😉 Sometimes we can get it done in a night, sometimes it will take several weeks for your order to make it to you.
You can email us any time, we’re usually stuck in the feeding chair under a sleeping baby anyway, so we’d love the company.
&willow is a micro brand originating in Albury, NSW.
8 weeks after a baby named Willow was born, her mum needed something to keep her active mind creative and happy - and &willow all fell into place.
Specialising in keeping things cute and practical, &willow brings modern taste to age-old baby needs. Simple, elegant, and useful.
We love hearing from you, contact us with any questions, special requests or photos of your little ones in our &willow goodies!
