Sunday Stitches and Christmas shipping

Started properly thinking about Christmas now. So yesterday I got some stitching done on these little gifts for the Great Christmas Market.

And I now have gift wrapping available for anyone who purchases items through my Esty Shop. There’s a choice of patterned or plain paper, with a satin ribbon and hand stamped tag with your message written on it. (please note colours may vary) and then it’s posted to anywhere in the world.

The last mailing day from NZ for International parcels is Wednesday 29th November.


Friday Jewels


Jewel colour weaving coming off the loom today. I’m working on some new products with a friend Rosemary Horn. She will add some embroidery stitch magic to them and they will become little wall art pieces and brooches.

Rosie and I will be selling these amongst other lovely goodies at the Great Christmas Market  on the 26th November.


So excited to reveal our custom print wall murals. Designed by us studio buddies, Twill Textile Design and Nester. Available exclusively at The Inside.

Our first mini range is called ‘Fly Home’ which features three designs and various colour stories – each with a distinctly New Zealand flavour and hand-made look.

‘Fantail Flight’ – Mustard/Grey

Studio Visit

Giving you a little tour around the studio today.  

It’s been a sunny week so maybe spring really is around the corner here. 

As well as design work, we took some time to tidy and reorganise. Feels like a very happy place. 


One-of-a-kind hand woven scarves and circle weaving kits now available at the fabulous World of Wearable Art Museum & Gallery, Nelson NZ

m o n o c h r o m e

After the riot of colour and texture of the last few scarf runs, this week the loom is dressed with something subtle and lightweight.

Neutral, quiet colours in fine NZ merino and silk.

I love the tiny ‘colour and weave’ patterns that appear when light and dark threads interlace each other in specific sequences.
