Happy New Year, 2020 is here and we are roaring through the first month.

We are committed to bringing the website up to date and keeping pace with all the goodies that are being delivered to the shop. Leonie is in parcel heaven most days.

We are planning a few new yarn lines to tempt the knitters among you and we continue to bring in new lines of fabric. Watch this space, our Facebook page and Instagram for new arrivals.

Exit January

on January 29, 2015

As January draws to a close we are busy planning our next class list. Classes and dates will be out by the middle of February.

January has been a busy month the highlight of which was our 5 days at Symposium in Palmerston North. My class with Debby Williams was great fun and I look forward to putting my new drafting skills to the test as I plan to design a Mariners Compass quilt.. Watch this space. Mum went to a Shibori dyeing class and has come home with all sorts of ideas...

New fabric is always coming in, this weeks surprise was a box of long forgotten Christmas-Fabric - Holiday Wishes. The fabric is now on the website and is highlighted on the front page.

Quillts for Christchurch update

by Fiona Shepherd
on October 23, 2013

Apologies for the silence... We have all been working away in the background and making more quilts and we sent a further box of fifteen quilts down last month. Tania tells me that these have all been distributed and are all well loved in their new homes. I do have a photo or two but I cannot distribute them using the blog! If you happen to be in the shop we can show you. It made my day to see the wee boy clutching his quilt!

The pile is slowly growing for the next shipment.. we have been held up slightly with life getting in the way in the form of quilt shows teaching and generally enjoying the shop.

I will post photos on Facebook very soon I promise..


Quilts for Christchurch

by Fiona Shepherd
on July 25, 2013

Thank you everyone for you support in this wee venture! We have sent 15 quilts so far the Christchurch and have promises of more in the coming weeks. Gisborne Quilters are spending their monthly get together this coning Saturday making quilts to be sent - Thanks Ladies!

The Gisborne Herald featured us on page two on Saturday 13th! If you haven't seen it:

They were also kind enough to send round Ben Cowper who has spent a week with them making videos on interesting events in Gisborne. He chose us and this project as one of his topics and the video is on the Gisborne Herald website. Ben did a fabulous job, all in one take last week. I am not too sure about the presenter.. but it gets the message across..


Back with more soon on our long weekend in Taupo at Symposium..

There is more to come but if you want to get ahead of the game for Christmas 2013.. this is your chance. We also have last years out as well so there is quite a selection to choose from.
