About Us

Sequin Bazaar is the initiative of textile artist and tutor Sue Senewiratne and her daughter Ruby. We are a mother and daughter team based in Melbourne, Australia. Embroidery, sewing and creative textiles are our passion and we are delighted to share our love of sequins and embellishments beyond our friends and workshops.

Where did it all start…well several years ago I discovered a bin of Indian fabric samples at a local fabric shop. They were covered in sequins in amazing shapes that I had no idea existed. I purchased everything to pull apart and use in my embroidery. Shortly afterwards in 2008 we headed off on our first trip to India carrying a sample card from those sequins determined to find more. I was not disappointed and was in heaven discovering the vast array of sequins and embellishments available. I now travel regularly to India and love its amazing history, architecture, people, colour, textiles and food ….and of course the shopping too!

On our website you will find an ever expanding range of sequins, beads, gems, braids and other delicious embellishments and bling – these are things we love to use in our own textile creations. We are sure you will enjoy using our embellishments as much as we do and will be inspired to get making.
