Greetings everyone

Linda and I have been beavering away and the shop is just about sorted. We’ve moved the buttons from being by the front door to further back in the shop, no more constantly opening door whilst trying to pick out a button. More blender fabrics have arrived and the brushed yarn dyes are on the shelf. The yarn dyes look terrific and could quite easily be used either side as they are brushed on one side and smooth on the reverse. We now have in stock Omnigrid ruler handles and a great carry case for your scissors and cutters. Also new in store is Aleene’s Fabric Fusion and Tacky Glue pens, great for tucking away in your bag.

Carol from Janome will be in store on the 9th of November and will be available to answer any questions you may have.

New books, patterns, bag patterns and batik fabrics have been ordered and should be arriving over the next 4-6 weeks.

On the lessons front, we are excited to announce that Kay Amos will be taking over-locker classes. She will be running the first one on Wednesday, 16th November from 6.30pm – 8.30pm. Class fee is great value at $20.00. Flick us an email us at shop@artofsewing.co.nz or pop in to the shop to book a spot.
