Bustle & Bows is owned and managed by Shirley Sinclair,
whose love of embroidery goes back to her school days when
she earnt a certificate from Semco at 9 years of age because
the back of a doily she embroidered was as neat as the front.
Shirley spent many years exploring and developing her creative
talents pursuing many interest’s including leadlight,
upholstery, pottery, decoupage, picture framing and cake
decorating, before one day in 1983, when she went in to Bustle & Bows
to buy some ribbon and not only bought the ribbons but the
shop as well!
