Whether your passion is scrapbooking, cardmaking, embroidery, quilting or you just need a button Hobbysew Echuca is your one stop shop.

The store is located in picturesque Echuca which sits on the banks of the mighty Murray River.  This beautiful tourist town has so much to offer.
Karen & Vin McInnes saw a tremedous opportunity to open the business in 2003 and since then Hobbysew Echuca has strived to offer the latest and greatest products without forgetting the basics, sourcing items both locally and internationally.

Knowing that everyone is time poor these days we would like to make your time with us as enjoyable and easy as it can be.  Our team has a wealth of knowledge and no question ever goes unanswered.

In addition to our fabulous staff we have a terrific team of tutors who love taking each and every one of you through the steps to assist you in making your creations.  Nothing gives us more pleasure than to see activity in our spacious classroom.  We regulary host international tutors and are happy to offer private lessons and group bookings for visitors to the area.  Some of our past visiting tutors include scrapbookers Prima Marketing and Trisha Ladoceur and landscape quilter Linden Lancaster.

We are constantly aware of the changing crafting industry and regularly attend workshops and events both here and overseas.  We are fortunate to have a Ranger U graduate in our ranks.  Karen is one of only 5 people Australia wide who is a Certified Ranger Educator.

In 2010 we introduced a Gammill Statler Stitcher quilting machine to the store.  Adele operates this fully computerised machine and is only too happy to discuss with you the options to turn your quilt top into a masterpiece.

We hope you enjoy your Hobbysew Echuca experience and be sure to check our blog regularly for our latest news and updates.
