First and foremost, I am a mum of 3 wonderful daughters and a wife to a wonderful man...And I have a passion for all things Handmade and the Handmade Home...But quilts are what I love best...below is a little more about what I do on a day-to-day basis.


My name is Nicole Reed, and I am an Event Planner, mainly Sewing Retreats, for both single and group bookings. We take care of all your needs at DDs Retreats, so all you need to do once you arrive is to sew and enjoy the fun, relaxed atmosphere. My team and I take care of the accommodation, food and the organisation of projects. At the present time, we are running these retreats at the beautiful Bunya Mountains in South East Queensland, intending to expand to other areas soon.

When I am not planning sewing retreats, I am a ‘machine quilter for hire based in Kingaroy, Queensland, Australia. I operate a quilting service using an Avante Q18 HandiQuilter Quilting Machine with the Q-Bot computerised system. Quilting with a computerised system is good news for my clients because the results are better. My machine produces even, regular stitches and stitches out a precise and accurate design. A wide selection of quilting designs is available, so finding just the right pattern to suit your quilt will be an easy choice for you.

I have been quilt-making and crafting for many years, so my knowledge about all aspects of patchwork and quilting is extensive, and I have been helping other quilt makers complete their quilts since 2009. 
In 2012 I started teaching a small group of ladies beginner patchwork, and since then have expanded to more advanced classes, including bag making. I am passionate about quilting and crafting in all forms of the word. I love to share my knowledge far and wide, so much so that 2018 has seen me delve into the world of YouTube. We grow daily by leaps and bounds and have subscribers from around the globe.


I am passionate about quilting and bringing like-minded people together. So you can be assured that I will treat your quilt and event with the highest regard. 

So If you are looking for a quilter to finish your quilting project or an event planner to plan your next sewing retreat, then you can be confident that here at Darvanalee Designs Studio, you will receive quality service from my team and me.


Happy Quilting and Crafting
