"The children were entranced with the wonderful items..."
"We loved the machines experience here at Delta Road Preschool, Susan kept the children ( and teachers) interested and engaged with her many interesting props and facts.
Who would have thought sewing machines could be so interesting!
It was especially engaging that the children could actually use a working sewing machine and create a little take home item."
"What a wonderful idea! Our centre has used both the airport set and insect set of dress ups.
The staff found that the dressups were beautifully designed and made, and the perfect size for preschool children to wear over their clothes. The fastenings were great, allowing most children to independently take the items on and off. These dress ups added wonderfully to our program, with the airport and forest both areas of focus for the time we were using the sets.
Susan’s background in fashion design shows through in the attention to detail and the beautiful design. Her background in early childhood education means the items are all child friendly and easy to use.
The children were entranced with the wonderful items, allowing them to extend their ideas and play in directions we hadn’t thought of. At one point one of our groups used the insect dressups to put on a “movie show” for the rest of the group. We had 22 children all involved in the play in some way… just amazing!
We would have no hesitation in recommending this fabulous business for any early childhood centre. It’s brilliant!!"

"Looking forward to having the machines incursion again. The children were really engaged as it was great that they could sew an item to take home."

"I have encountered Susan in the capacity of costume designer, costume co-ordinator and mentor to people learning to sew. Susan excels working with children and young adults, she is passionate about enhancing community activity. She has consistently assisted in junior productions and is a valued member of the team as well as relating to junior members of the company with empathy, support and a well-balanced good nature."
Brad Fischer - President and Artistic director, SHOOSH Productions.
That was such a great incursion and the children absolutely loved it. I've also had many parents and grandparents telling me they are now sewing at home with children! We will definitely love to have you back next year.
