Save the Date for an amazing class, 15 NEW kits and the April Auckland Stitches and Craft Show!

Hello again Friends

Forgive my recent hiatus, firstly- I thought you deserved a break after getting so much from me before Christmas- and secondly we’ve been really busy creating 15 new kit designs!!!!

Yep- we’ve crossed a few finish lines recently, but MOST importantly…. We’ve persuaded the amazing Helen Dafter (ribbon embroiderer and designer extraordinaire!) to come back across the ditch to teach a class in early May…… CHECK IT OUT!

I KNOW! I did a crazy Snoopy dance when I saw it too!!!

So- I hear you ask- “What is it and How does the class work???

I’m glad you asked- here’s the nitty -gritty……

It’s called “A Little Bit of Magic” and it’s a fabulous sewing tool holder- there’s space for a tape measure; there’s pin cushions in the mushrooms; there’s a scissor holder amongst the moss- and they’re all wrapped up in a swank load of hand dyed velvet and beaded gorgeousness!

  • Dates: Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 May 
  • Place: At “ours” -the home of Tis the Season; 1770 Ponga Road, Papakura, Auckland (about 15 mins from the motorway)
  • Cost: $220 per person which includes the stuff you need to make this little bit of magic, (and yes- you’ll get lunch and teas and coffees all weekend too).

Sounds fun; where can I sign up???

We can only fit TEN into the class, so email me directly ( to reserve your place! I’ll then send you all the details so you can confirm …… first paid will get first preference. So, my lovelies, if you’re interested, please mail me now! Helen has also let her friends know about it and some places are already filled. 

As for the 15 new kit designs……. All 15 newbies are getting their grand premier at the Auckland Stitches and Craft Fair! - (they’ll be up on the web page around that time too!)

And….yep! you DID hear me correctly…. the Stitches and Craft show is returning to Auckland on 28,29,30 April, ASB Showgrounds, Greenlane- chuck that into your now diary too!!!!

We’re running classes on our stand during the show- Here’s a pic of our “house plant jewellery” demo to tempt you!! 

We’ll be sending you all the show info (PLUS a couple of special show dealios) over the next few weeks- watch this space!!! If you’ve got friends who also like free stuff, we’d be delighted if you forwarded this mail to them so they can subscribe to our newsletter too – they can subscribe by clicking here.

Oh- and before I go……a new game for you! fly over to and check out your fairy name- And NO! – you may not call me “Columbine Catglimmer” EVER!…… I hope yours turns out better than mine! 

Talk soon
Robyn, with Snoopy dancing
