Featured Artist
Kelly Joseph
Kelly Joseph has to be one of juniper's most successful selling artists. Her works range greatly in medium but are all tied together by colour texture and a hint of the past. She never stops creating and always delights. I hope you'll pop in and view her lovely work.

New stock of Egg Press in store now!! our biggest selection to date. Old favorites with some fantastic new designs they've cooked up. This Oregon based letterpress company is unsurpassed in quality and design. These are the cards you give when you need that person to open the envelope and put their hand to their mouth because they have no words to say how lovely it is.

Suffocating under a pile of Sewcherry sewing the other day I thought to myself "Self (I said) why don't you sell all of these scraps you keep saying you'll do something with and never do?" So I thought that was a pretty good idea and crawled out from under the pile, went down to the shop, had Nicky and I put together lots of wee packs of patchwork fabric. If you are passing by this week and need a cold weather project snap up a wee pack of fabric only $2 ea. We'll even give you a few tips of what you can create. Above is a sneak peak at fun you can have with fabric.

Bit random but pretty. hope to see you in the shop this week we've got lots of new bits to show you. see you soon!
