Creswick Woollen Mills Joins QVM

Creswick Woollen Mills are new tenants in Therry St. but their association with the market goes back to the days when the grandchildren of the original founders worked at QVM.

· ‘’My sister Sharon and I always had the entrepreneurial drive. As children some of my fondest memories was spending weekends selling t-shirts at our parent’s market stall. We are looking forward to once again being part of the market community, bringing our iconic family owned and operated business to the market’s customers“

Creswick Woollen Mills is an Australian family company that was founded in 1947. The mill is located in Creswick between Daylesford and Ballarat, just over one hour from Melbourne.
