Summer Sewcherry handbags are rolling off the sewing machine everyday. This one I finished just as Sam was leaving and I forced (sorry Sam) her to model it. My Summer range of bags are probably my best work yet. I am so happy how they are being received and how they are looking. It's taken a while but I think I've cracked it!

New Nova handbag $62

This months Lucky Dip Project...

Faux Orchid plant

This living wee little gem will last 4 days-week and has all the charm of a plant but uses only one clipping. Everyone's turned out lovely.

Many thanks to everyone who was so understanding of why we had only one project this month. You see I had a very silly accident with my back and after a trip to the physio could move very little as I was taped up quite tightly. So one project was all I could manage.

But as always the class was full of laughs and smiles.

There are 8 spaces available for October 22nd class. be in quick.
We had wanted to do two that month but due to labour weekend and another event there will be no second class.

NEW to the shop this week !

Saturday the lovely rep for Electra Bikes Felicity brought us our demo bike and instantly I fell in LOVE. She even has a name "Cherry Baby".
I have a confession to make, I have not rode a bike in over 10 years. Seriously. But before you boo and throw fruit I recently (today) took my new Electra "Deluxe" (pictured) for a ride to Island Bay today. I was stopped twice by admirers and tooted at twice (no not because I was going to slow or because I look good in my helmet) the motorists gave me a thumbs up in approval on my sweet ride. If your are gonna be eco and ride a bike why not have fun, look cool, and feel sort of like a big kid?
Come in and take a spin on our demo bike. Then choose from any of the bikes available for order.

Perfect, durable and so lovely. I have a set of the white tea cups that suprisingly get used for ice cream sundaes more than tea...
