About Me

Jemima Flendt sitting with quilt

Welcome to Tied with a Ribbon - I'm Jemima Flendt. Since I can remember I have always been around fabrics and crafts.  My grandmother used to teach me to crochet and mum was always making at her sewing machine.  I have grown up to love and be inspired by all things fabric, textiles, buttons, ribbons and embellishments.


I started quilting in my teens, making quilts from leftover scraps from Mum's sewing projects.  I was quickly hooked and then started to take classes to learn all about different quilting techniques and skills.  My professional Background as a High School Home Economics Teacher has driven my passion for teaching and sharing all things Quilts and sewing.


Today I design and create Quilt and Sewing Patterns for my label Tied with a Ribbon, specialising in modern, fun designs that pack a punch and deliver helpful skills and tips so that even a beginner Quilter/sewer can feel confident in making.


I have written three books – Weekend Quilting, Quilt Big and Quilt it, Crochet it.  I thoroughly love teaching Quilting and Sewing classes, Retreats and Workshops here in Australia and overseas. I have contributed to many major Quilting Publications and offer my signature Beginners Online Quilt Course - New Quilt on the Block.
