Lucija Srnec



Lucija has made national costumes, working clothes and festive dresses for dolls, jewellery and pottery.

She raised a large family of five children and has always been very active in the Slovene community.

“In my free time I used to sew and I was interested in various forms of needlework: bobbin-lace, national costumes, knitting, pottery, writing short poems, and I’m now working on my biography. I’ve always been very busy in the Slovene community and there is little time now for needlework.”

Lucija Srnec, a native of the village of Sesterže in the environs of Ptuj, has lived in Australia for over fifty years and resides in Melbourne.
