Inspired by a great idea, Sarah and Emma have built on the original concept of combining textiles and workshops in a beautiful environment, to give you Treehouse Textiles.
Sarah & Leo Kuter have lived at Merricks North for the past twelve years. Treehouse Textiles original building was a successful 4½ star rated B&B called ‘Treehouse on the Lake’, which was closed in October 2011. With a keen eye for detail Sarah has involved herself in every aspect of the development, the aesthetics of Treehouse Textiles is her work and her skill in colour and design will be an asset to us all.
