My name is Marni Franks and I’d like to welcome you to my store Frankenstein’s Fabrics.
I am a 30-something quilter with a love of things dark and whimsical, a penchant for science fiction and an obsession with Snow White.
I am a published quilter, pattern designer, ex-magazine editor and all round crafty cat lady.
I am the quilter who almost never discovered quilting but dived in to learn something new and found my life’s passion. Frankenstein’s Fabrics is the dream I never knew I had and the job I always wanted. My passion for fabrics and quilting is only rivalled by my love for my cats. Vladimir (Russian Blue), my furry soulmate (passed 13/6/2016) and Nimbus (Black cat), my homicidal muffin on legs.
I love to help quilters of all levels – whether it be with a product, machine quilting, quilter’s block or just to discuss current fabrics and patterns – I am there, ready and waiting with over a decade’s worth of experience. I pride myself on helping point people in the right direction for their craft hobby – even when that direction isn’t towards me – because customer satisfaction is what I do.
Currently Frankenstein’s Fabrics’ products are in the process of being re-loaded to the web-store. Any products listed here on the web-store are products that I sell in conjunction with patchwork and quilting as well as many of my pre-made quilts, Mollie Makes magazines and gift vouchers. Pre-orders are most certainly welcome – just send me a message and I’ll work it out for you.
I machine quilt for customers from home – many customers post their quilts to me however if you are local to the Central Coast we can arrange a drop off/pick up.
For more information please feel free to drop me a line and I’d love to see what you are making.
