About us

Our Location

What’s great about Maryborough – just three hours north of Brisbane and the gateway to stunning Fraser Island and Hervey Bay, Maryborough is most famous for being the birthplace of P.L.Travers, the author of Mary Poppins.  We even have Mary Poppins street lights!  Maryborough is well known for it’s beautiful parks and gardens, Heritage buildings and Queenslander homes.  Steeped in history as one of the first major ports in Queensland, a visit to the Wharf St Museum and Military Museum is a must for husbands (while their wives visit us!)

Rooted in History

Looks can be deceiving from the outside when you visit Patchwork on Pallas.  Situated in the suburbs, our building was a quaint, old fashioned corner butcher shop from the late 1890’s to 2002 when I converted it to the amazing patchwork and sewing machine shop it is today.  When you step inside, you’ll find a treasure trove for the sewing and quilting enthusiast.  See if you can spot the original meat racks or cold rooms!
