It’s been a while since my last newsletter but I have been sitting on a few up-and-coming projects, as we head in to the last few months of the year, and making samples, has taken a while. We get asked frequently if we do classes, so I hope that some of the workshops listed below […]

Hi ladies I can’t believe Term 2 has almost finished! Our Tuesday night class has gone really well this term and it’s such a pleasure for me to see Beginner Patchworkers churning out some pretty impressive quilts after 10 weeks. With the constant arrival of new fabrics into the store, this week we have 4 […]

January 22, 2018

One Month On – 22 January 2018 Today it is one month since we first opened the doors of our shop. What a huge learning curve it has been! There have been so many new systems to learn, and new ways of doing things. Our first customer challenged us with having to do multiple sales […]

Counting Down the Days

December 7, 2017

As the TV Series ‘800 words’ finished their third series last week, I realized that George, one of the main characters in the programme, keeps his blogs to 800 words. My challenge today and in future blogs is to try and keep it short. I think I might soon get too busy to spend lots […]

A Deconstruction Parable

November 27, 2017

I’m not one who usually finds stress to be an issue. I would consider myself to be quite laid back in how I approach life in general – usually when the going gets a bit tough I tend to ‘go to ground’ and stay off the radar for a few days, and then I put […]

A Shop Called ‘The Eye Of A Needle’

October 25, 2017

Well what a month October has turned out to be! We thought we would move to Taupo and just take a few weeks for the boy to recover from heart surgery, do a bit of exploring and ease our way in to our new life in Taupo. Someone bigger than us has had very different ideas. […]

A New Season

October 12, 2017

What a week it has been! You know that feeling when you get through a major time in your life and at the end of it you can pat yourself on the back and say ‘We did it’! Well that’s me today. I am amazed at how, when we ask for help, it will always […]

Girls can do Anything!

October 1, 2017

I have 4 days until moving day. I have had to face a couple of curve balls in the past week which have been rather challenging. I am encouraged greatly by how, when we really set our hearts and minds to overcome no matter what the obstacles, God will get us through. He didn’t say […]

Moving Has Begun

September 25, 2017

I love this time of the year. Spring has sprung! The mornings are getting lighter, and daylight saving has started. When I jumped out of bed this morning and pulled back the curtains I looked at the most glorious view down the valley and I was reminded that it’s exactly a year ago today since […]
