The next Fraft is almost upon us!

I’m gearing up for the next Fraft at the end of June. I love the mid-winter Fraft market. Winter can be so dreary and cold that it’s lovely to have an event to warm the cockles of my heart! The mulled wine helps too……! If you always mean to come and never get round to it, I totally recommend you make the effort this year. I know the feeling: often you just can’t be bothered braving the cold evening, particularly after almost a week of work —- but if you do summon some energy and come along, you’ll be really pleased you did. Why not arrange an evening drinks date with those friends you’ve been meaning to catch up with?
See below for details and head over to the facebook page for information on the clever people who’ll be selling their wares.

bear with….bear with….

You can be forgiven for thinking there’s been nothing to report on due to the lack of – well – reports. Au Contraire! Not only am I planning for the Collaborative Community Exhibition in just over a month, but I have been selected to show at the Auckland Art and Craft Fair on December 8th. Mark it in your diary, spread the word and come on down to the Aotea Centre and say hi.

As well as working towards these, I’m always uploading more stock to the shop. Here’s a selection of the most recent additions.

Unfortunately, as well as all the usual business busy-ness, my Grandad-in-law passed away last week so we had an unexpected trip to Christchurch to say bye to him. It’s always sad to lose someone, no matter what a great and long life they have lived. We had a lovely time with the family, though. I do like it that the T.V. doesn’t get turned on and everyone is right there in the moment, sharing stories and cherishing being together. So. Sad but happy. Life’s often full of paradoxical moments, right?
