I'll be taking a short break from tomorrow and will re-open on Tuesday 5th January. I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a happy and safe holiday season. Thank you to all my customers and friends for your support in 2015. I'll be back in the new year and will try to be a bit more diligent with my posting!

These are the same scissors as I use in the shop. I only have a limited supply - the one's on the left are $65 and the ones on the right are $90. They're both excellent but the ones on the right are divine! I just had mine sharpened after however many years and they feel beautiful to use. If you're in Hobart I recommend the place in Elizabeth Street (near the corner of Brisbane St) for sharpening.

These books arrived this morning. The colouring-in book is inexpensive ($20) and has some great patterns that you might be able to adapt for embroidery or other textile projects. 'Hello Tokyo' has 'handmade projects and fun ideas for a cute, Tokyo-inspired lifestyle'. I'm not sure if collage fridge magnets and polka dot tablecloths will make you feel like you're in Tokyo but it can't hurt to try! It would be a lovely crafty Christmas present anyway. :)

We've got lots of furoshiki wrapping cloths. They're used and as-new in varying sizes and fabrics - much more attractive and eco-friendly than Christmas wrap. I've made up an info sheet with lots of wrapping instructions and am happy to help.
