Hi Crafters
We're on our way home! At the moment, we're on the ferry, headed for Picton and it's a beautiful day. We have travelled 2800km so far and there's a few more hundred to go. I'm certainly ready for a leg stretch!
We want to say THANKS for all the support for us on the Roadshows. It was lovely to see so many happy faces and we're pleased you came to classes and the pop-up shops. Don't forget we are heading out on the roads one last time in November to visit Invercargill, Dunedin, Tauranga (again), Auckland, Whangarei and Hamilton. More details below for the classes that are on offer.

Karyn is running MIDNIGHT MADNESS tonight, so pop to the shop and craft for the evening. We are CLOSED for Labour Day on Monday.

Another shipment of GoPress & HotFoil Machines landed this week and the girls in the shop have been busy sending them out. This machine was  HIT at the Wellington PaperArts Show and we sold out another shipment of them there. We also  have another 10 arriving on Tuesday, so be quick and get your hands on one. We also received some new HotFoil Stamps and we will load them online next week. 

This week we load up the last of the Christmas ranges - Bo Bunny's Carousel and Fa La La. Can you believe Christmas is apparently only 9 weeks away... We also have stamps and laser cut chipboard that you'll love. Don't forget to pre-order the WRMK Tools that we featured last week. Keep reading for all the details...
