GUEST SPEAKER—Georgie Leckie of Heatherly Design
Georgie told us of her business starting with the need to design a padded bedhead for her own bedroom and then for other members of the family and how she took over the woolshed on her property to make more for friends and family.
It all started in 2007 and when she was ready to market the idea in 2008 you had to rely on publication in home magazines. In 2013 she was asked by The Block to come up with a bedhead and given 48 hours notice and her business took off.
Georgie now makes fully upholstered bedheads, beds, footstools, storage ottomans and bedside tables.
Her 2009 business was considered a hobby generating income. In years her sales have grown to just under $30 million and it all started in a woolshed in Acheron
