Meet the Team

 

Shop Owner Sharon Thomson works with an amazing team of enthusiastic sewists. Charlotte Duncan and Jo Rudd are the backbone of our online store and back Sharon up at shows. Lisa Johnson helps with pop-ups and samples. We are a small but mighty team who love fabric, sewing and hanging out talking about fabric and sewing.

Sharon Thomson

Store owner Sharon Thomson never met a craft she didn't like but patchwork and quilting have been at the top of the list since picking up casual teaching work with Berry Patchwork when first moving to Berry around 17 years ago. Fast forward to today. Sharon is now the owner of the business, now called Berry Quilt & Co. and has captained it through 8yrs of busy brick and mortar retail. Currently, after the loss of the store lease, Sharon is reinventing the business in new ways.

Sharon is; A teacher, teaching at Berry Quilt & Co, for various guilds in Australia and at the Australasian Quilt Convention in 2024; A designer who has a number of patterns in Quilters Companion and Homespun magazine; A quilt judge, having judged at many levels form local guild challenges, rural show societies and the last Australian Modern Quilt Show; A maker of all sorts and an enthusiastic Modern and Abstract quilter. Sharon is big supporter of groups and guilds and volunteers whenever she can for Quilt NSW and is the Vice President of Wollongong Modern Quilt Guild. At home she has a hubby, three daughters with only one left at school, two cats and a shiny new shed aka 'online fulfilment' centre! Follow her on instagram @marmalade_hill

Quilting Teacher Jennifer Corkish | Berry Quilt & Co.

The Team

Charlotte Duncan began her sewing journey as student of Sharon's way back in the Berry Patchwork Days, before 2014. Her skills have grown in that time and she joined our team when we began as Berry Quilt & Co. in 2016. She works one day a week filling orders and keeping our stock levels in shape! She's a busy girl, the rest of the time she works for Nowra Anglican College, runs a dietician practice and looks after her two high school age boys boys, her fireman hubby and an assortment of dogs and horses. Follow her on instagram @charliedunc5

Jo Rudd joined the team at Berry Quilt & Co. when we had our brick and mortar store, were growing and needed additional floor staff. Jo is a compulsive maker and has tried everything from punch needle embroidery to knitting, spinning and more. She vowed she didn't need a new craft but we have lured her to the darkside and now in between organising her family and moving house, she has made several gorgeous quilts and is talking the lingo!
