Meg is the designer behind Megan Nielsen Patterns.
At the beginning of 2010 she launched her brand with a debut ready to wear collection – it was an instant hit. Since then she’s released 5 ready to wear collections, and in 2012 added a line of modern and easy to use sewing patterns based on her designs.
Other than that, she’s 30, an Aussie, a passionate Christian, and lives in sunny Perth, Western Australia with her wonderful husband Chris, and three beautiful kiddos (“Bunny”, “Buddy” and “Birdie”).
