Bernadette is the joint business owner and operator of North Lakes Embroidery.

Creative Embroidery Officer (CEO #2) , Bernadette is the embroidery-passionate, driving force behind the North Lakes Embroidery operations. Hands on from the very start, she has been instrumental in the growth of North Lakes Embroidery and is responsible for quality qssurance and overseeing the daily production operations, completion and delivery of your valued new work uniforms or individual personalised items.

A true perfectionist, Bernadette ensures all embroidery and decoration is carried out to the highest possible standards to completion, using only premium threads and materials, aligned with the latest available software and North Lakes Embroidery’s industry leading – latest generation Tajima embroidery machines and Hoop Master equipment.

Over the years, she has gained a very loyal following with existing clients and frequently has new referred clients coming in and asking for her to complete their new uniforms, family items and giftware decoration and supply. Her most appreciative form of Thank You is all the referrals North Lakes Embroidery receives from associates and friends of current clients to use their quality services.

She is a devoted team leader and when not busy with embroidery, you can find her dabbling in her new adventure – learning to play acoustic guitar and doting over her 3 sons and 1 fur baby, little Minty the Maltese.


Minty is North Lakes Embroidery’s mascot and sup-paw-tor, client greeter and photo bomb expert!

When she’s not following the North Lakes Embroidery team around constantly and getting involved at every photo opportunity, you’ll find her lying on the reception desk on ‘Desk Top’ duty ready to ‘Meet and Greet’ the next customer with her friendly face and waggly tail. She has her own “Client Fan Club” even to the point, on occasion, a client will delay collecting their items so as not to miss her if she’s out at a Pampering Appointment.

On her days off, you can find her playing with her hoo-man family, out exploring the neighbourhood on their walks or going for joy rides in their car.
