 Quite a lot actually!!!

Christmas fabric - I know it seems a little premature but we have received some in so it's out and on sale... Rich reds, greens, gold and blue.. 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. All $26 a metre. I will be putting all the Christmas fabric on the Website in the coming week.

Also in in a fabulous range of fabric from Red Rooster - Postcard Garden. I've put an album of photos on Facebook and it is on the front page of the website as well. There was lots of oohh and aahhs on Friday and Saturday here in the shop so be in quick I don't think it will last that long!

Have you seen the class list yet? Have a look and book yourself on a class. We held a machine quilting class yesterday and it was a lot of fun, with very positive feedback from all the participants.

Back soon with more news.



Post Easter calm

 has set in.. well almost.. We have friends here from the UK and we are playing tour guides. It is great fun showing off NZ as there is so much to see. Especially here in Gisborne.

They are of course quilters so we have had fun showing them the shop and playing in the fabric. If you are a Facebook person and follow our page you will have seen the snail train block that Amelia made in her first couple of days here.

We have had new stock in in the last couple of weeks and excitingly we know that there will be more batik in next week.

We've had buttons Ric Rac, beautiful poppy fabric as well. All are on the website!!..

back soon.

Finally... we have buttons from Riley Blake and Ric Rac. The colours are clear and crisp. All buttons are 1 inch and are loaded on the website. The Ric Rac has all been photographed and I will load tomorrow.

the Weekend has passed in a bit of a blur. I was up bright and early and headed off to Eastwood Hill Arboretum to attend the Gisborne Quilters annual retreat as a day guest. Fabulous setting and good company. I managed to get a lot of sewing done in between the laughter and food! Next year I am going to go for the whole three days!.

Today we have been out and about in the sunshine and been to the Ormond School Gala, well organised and even better extremely well attended. I am now off to bed with my wee dose of sunburn!.


Have you been to see us??

The shop is fit to burst with fabric right at the moment. We have had a lot of fun unpacking parcels and rearrnging the shop on an almost weekly basis. The big shipment of Batik has certainly added a burst of colour as you walk in the main doors.

We are really happy to see and hear that word is spreading about our wee shop. Gisborne is certainly a crafty place! We have had visitors from all over NZ and as far afield as Germany and the UK.

Today is a shorter day than normal as we are off to see Barry Gibb in concert at the Mission in Napier. Mum and Elaine have left already and I will be zooming off at around 3. Hopefully it be a bit warmer in Napier than it is here this morning. I am thinking another layer might be in order!!

So what has come in this week?

A very pretty blue set of three fabrics.Chambray Rose by Shabby Chic. $ 29 a metre. It will be on the website very soon.



The possibilities are endless and we have some great blenders that would work well with them.

The website is nearing completion. I have an amendment to the shopping cart that needs to go live (and I cannot get it to work). After that we are live and ready to receive orders! We have decided to go with Paypal to begin with, to be honest the banks make things so complicated we have put that on the back burner for a wee while. I'll let you know! In the meantime if you do some fabric you would like email or call us.

Back soon.
