After enduring the hottest Summer in recorded history here in Queensland, Australia, the arrival of Autumn and the promise of cooler weather is sooooo welcome!
As most of you in the Northern Hemisphere are enjoying beautiful Spring weather and are putting your sewing machines and knitting needles away for the warmer months, crafters here in the Southern Hemisphere are beginning to think of indoor Winter activities such sewing, knitting and crochet. So ..... we need to get cracking and fill some of our still empty shelves with a yummy selection of textiles and yarns for our soon-to-be-busy-crafting Australian and New Zealand customers.
The sweltering heat over Summer has certainly put us way behind in photographing, weighing, describing, and listing products, so please drop back occasionally as the cooler weather encourages more progress in this regard. (We only opened this new store on 13th of January and the initial setup is proving to be a huge, but fun, undertaking).
NORO YARN....Over the coming weeks we will be adding more beautiful NORO yarn to our shelves. (For those of you unfamiliar with Noro, there is a story about it within each listing). I have actually used Noro for weaving as well as for knitting and crochet.
(POSTAGE FOR YARN. Because yarn is bulky....just a single ball becomes a parcel and in Australia it costs $8.50 to send 1 - 6 balls that weigh 50g each. So....if you're interested in placing a yarn order, please message us first and we'll tell you how much postage will be. We offer postage discounts to Australian Buyers and we always refund any postage overage if our shipping calculator has overcharge).
LIBERTY TANA LAWN - We are expecting a shipment of wonderful new prints and colourways in Liberty Classics, and some old favourites appear in the Liberty Classic Revival range. These are scheduled to arrive at the end of this month.
Classic Revival prints are a 'one-of' designs that have been unavailable for years. (I'm hoping to receive some Ianthe (photo above), Caesar and Hera as well as some other old favourites). So, if you wish to add some of these gorgeous fabrics, you'll need to be fast. We could only get our hands on a few bolts of these highly collectable fabrics because Liberty was sold out of them almost immediately.
Spring/Summer 2017 Seasonal Release - 'Castaway' is now available. This is such a fun collection of prints featuring reef fish, corals, tropical fruit, birds of paradise and the highly sought after Message in a Bottle (above) design. Seasonal releases are limited edition and the fabrics are highly collectable.
The Little Land of Rhyme is a Special Release for children based on familiar nursery rhymes. The collection is due for official release in the Northern Hemisphere on 1 July 2017. Whilst images of this collection (already released in Australia) are 'under wraps' in the Northern Hemisphere until July, we already have this collection available for purchase and immediate delivery. If you're interested in viewing this range, please message us using our store's CONTACT feature and we will give you access to the images and also allow you to purchase.
Happy crafting everyone!
