The face behind Carousels and Candy Floss – Sarah
Hello, my name is Sarah. I established Carousels and Candy Floss in 2012 to share my love of creating and in particular, my passion for creating for children and celebrating the innocence and imagination of childhood.
I have always been creative – drawing, painting, cake decorating, furniture restoration, jewellery making, ceramics etc. You name it, I’ve probably done it.
I have been sewing since I was very young and handmade has always been a part of my life. My granny was a skilled dress maker. She could make anything, drafting her own patterns from newspaper. She sewed for all her 8 children and 14 grandchildren, and my wardrobe was always full of gorgeous handmade clothing.
My professional background is in medical science – biochemistry and molecular biology/genetics in particular. Prior to having children I worked in one of Sydney’s major children’s hospitals and clinical research. My scientific background plays a part in my sewing – precision, and attention to detail.
My most favourite creations are my four children. I love to read (although have very little time for that), I’m fascinated by nature and intrigued by true crime. I intended to pursue a career in forensic science prior to having children. That dream is yet to be realised but perhaps one day.
