May 2012 Newsletter
Jacob in his lined overalls
Well the cold weather is really here now and I am certainly not enjoying it after just getting back from Rarotonga where I went to my Nieces wedding, and what an awesome spot they held it at and a great time was had by all of us who were lucky enough to be able to attend.
The reun of the Martinborough Fair was as successful as the other fairs and it was great to see so many new stall holders there this time. as usual it was a 4am start for us and then the long drive back as far as Waiouru that night and boy on the Sunday morning it was freezing cold at minus 4 and the car was covered in thick ice, but the one advantage was the beautful view of the mountain with the snow glistening in the sunlight.
The NZ Agriculture Fieldays are now only 31 days away and long hours are now being put into getting all the stock ready for it, plus turning the orders around as fast as we can.
At long last our navy waterproof fabric has arrived so all back orders are now on their way out to everyone. Thank goodness the wharf strike is now over and we will not have anymore delays with getting our fabrics.
We now have another new pattern in the Cotton/Merino sleeping Bags it is a cool Critter bugs design and only just arrived into the country last week, hence this is the first photo of them as they are being made now. It is now already on its ways to NurseryRhyme Ltd in Hawera. We have altered our bags so that they now open flat and are sewn down on one side only, this was to make it a easier access to change the baby in the night and also alot easier to put on.
Our Cord pinafores will be on the website early next week also, just waiting for them to be finished off, and we will also have the Cord skirts there as well.
We have a new long line Merino Top in the pipeline which will be great to team up with the tights and this should be available very soon.
We will be once again at the great fundraiser market for the CCS Disability resource centre Royal Oak Market on the 20th of May so do come along and support the worthy cause, they have lots of awesome plants etc for sale there along with lots of other stalls. this is their blog link http://www.royaloakmarket.blogspot.com
