Hello, i’m Mel and I’m the founder and creator of Foster's Western Threads and this is my story...
I was born and raised on my family’s farm near the small country town of Boddington, West Australia. I’ve always grown up in the country and always been involved with animals of all shapes and sizes and growing up i took a particular interest in horses. I have now grown to learn and be involved with horses in all different disciplines.
I started my rodeo career 5 years ago and fell In love with the sport and the challenge!
Foster's Western Threads came about in 2019 as a hobby. I never thought it would grow this big and this fast! I started out creating small things that I found useful to myself when riding my horses in which I was soon to find out that other people needed just what I needed.
I started to make some bags and saddle sacks so I could ride and have a place for all the extra bits and pieces I needed to carry and from there the business has exceeded and grown for demand more than I could have ever of hoped for!
I have many business that I wholesale too as well as individual customers that like to buy direct from my page.
I absolutely love to create these amazing pieces for my amazing customers to use in their everyday routines!
Foster's Western Threads is still a growing dream of mine and I hope you enjoy these products as much as I do!
Lastly I would like to mention a few people that have helped me on this journey. With the help of my mum (because just like me she has a crazy passion for creating and sewing) - thanks mum your'e the best. Mum has helped me many times with designing, sewing and cutting around the table and not only have we created great products together we have spent many hours together on our mum/daughter relationship.
Thank you for visiting my page and if there’s something you’re wanting created please don’t hesitate to contact me so we can make it a reality as I love new projects and trying new things!
