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 (gone but never forgotten) 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.
I machine quilt for customers from home – many customers post their quilts to me however if you are local to Gosford/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.
