It’s been a busy couple of months for the owner of Black Possum Fabrics and Beads with no let up in sight.

She recently moved her store to new premises on Myall Street, ironically opposite to where she opened the doors of her first business in Tea Gardens 35 years ago.

“We started off as a video shop and got bored with that,” Jennifer laughingly told News Of The Area.

“Then we started a sewing and gift shop.”

Jennifer has always had a passion for sewing and it now takes her all over the country.

“We recently did the ‘Craft Alive Show’ in Wagga Wagga,” Jennifer said.

“They show off very different crafts down there, from paper craft to woodworkers.”

From Wagga Wagga it was off to Penrith in Sydney’s west for the ‘Mad Quilters Expo’.

“We’ve been doing that for 10 years,” Jennifer said.

Over the years, Jennifer has travelled to Craft Shows all over the country, from Broken Hill to Brisbane.

Next she’s off to the small town of Talbingo in the New South Wales Snowy Mountains before heading to Logan and Toowoomba in Queensland.

Tamworth and Orange are also on the agenda.

Luckily Black Possum is a family run store with 3 generations of Gimberts keeping the home fires burning.
