About Us

Welcome to Petal & Thread.

We are a mother and daughter team who have shared our passion for botanicals and our love of sewing. We create beautiful, timeless items of clothing for your young ones.  Born in Christchurch, in the spectacular South Island of New Zealand, we are both now living in the equally beautiful, Sunshine Coast of Australia. We come from a long line of crafters, seamstresses and home sewers, both learning to sew at a young age.


Leanne is a qualified Medical Herbalist who is constantly creating, whether it be herbal tonics, skin care, crochet, knitting or sewing.  All her products have nature and botanicals as the primary theme.


Ashleigh has carried on the loving, generational tradition of giving her daughter a primarily handmade wardrobe.


Together we want to bring you beautifully crafted, timeless, high quality clothing that you and your little one will love for generations to come.
