Tuesday Stack - A Stack of Sewing

There has been a stack of making going on at Stitchbird.  Lots of handmade goodies ready for the Christmas season.  I thought I would share a small selection of some of the making.  This is a few of the kid's messenger bags, lace zippered purses and purses we have made for the shop.

You won't find these in the on-line store as they are only one of two made of each design.  But if you see something you would like please comment here or send an email.


Have you been doing some Christmas making?

Anniversary Treats

It is a year since we moved across the drive to Shop 25, Kilbirnie Plaza. To celebrate we are giving away fabric. For every $50 spent on fabric in store you get to choose a fat quarter of fabric. So our on line customers don't miss out we have a treat for you too, with a free gift for every order over $100. Thanks everyone for being such great customers and happy sewing!

Golden Bay Toys are World Famous

This Golden Bay Toy's Caterpillar is going home with Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.  I wonder who will be the lucky recipient?  These toys are hand made by my brother-in-law, Murray in Golden Bay.  He does a wonderful job and it is great to see him getting this royal recognition.

And does this caterpillar turn into a monarch butterfly?  We think it might.

Stitchbird is proud to stock a range of Golden Bay Toys.
