Margaret Evans & Wendy Gleeson started Clever Ducks Quilting Co in Colac in January 2008. With Margaret's business management skills, Wendy's experience in teaching patchwork and both with an interest and passion in making their own quilts, the new business venture was established.
Apart from making the decision on the most appropriate machine to purchase, the challenge was to create a captivating business name. We were inspired by these 'ducks' in a local shop!
We are the only long arm quilting machine business in the Colac Otway Shire and have quilts sent to us from Ballarat, Bendigo, Melbourne, Terang, Timboon, Camperdown, Simpson, Portland, Orbost and Lakes Entrance.
We operate a Gammill Optimum Plus machine with a computerised Statler Stitcher. With a 24" quilting area we can quilt up to a King sized quilt or place just as much importance on your table runner or cushion cover.
Where to find us:
Turn Right into Bruce Street (this runs into Chapel St), just after the overpass beside the Colac Showgrounds as you come into Colac from Geelong or Left if you are coming from the western side of Colac.
Clever Ducks Quilting Co is at 51 Chapel St., the house on the corner with signage on the fence leading to the side gate.
