SPRING NEWSLETTER

 

Firstly, a big thank you to all those wonderful customers who came to our recent Open days and Sale, it was a very successful weekend!

We had over seventy visitors during the two days and it was really cheering to see so many of our friends after such a depressing year.

Great bargains were purchased during the weekend but if you were not able to attend, check out the new Spring Specials here, there are many good deals still on offer.

 

NEWS FLASH! 

Ashford are introducing a new range of DK wool which is just about to be released. There will be 40 lovely shades available to replace their Tekapo 8ply which has been discontinued, although we do still have most colours in stock and this great yarn is now on sale.

Ashford have also deleted their 3ply wool which has been so popular with the weavers, however we purchased all their remaining stock so if you enjoy using this fine wool now is the time to buy!

Ashford have also added two new items to their equipment range - an attractive timber ball winder with tensioning as well as an electronic model which is compact and perfect for speedy winding of yarns.

Check out the Ashford website on www.ashford.co.nz for more details of these exciting products, and you can also watch many free tutorials.

We are always happy to assist with any spinning, weaving, felting or knitting queries, our staff are very experienced. Personal visits to browse our shop are also welcome but please contact us first to confirm a day and time.

Support for Crafts People Affected by Summer Fires

In the aftermath of the terrible bushfires so many Australians have experienced during the summer months, Glenora Weaving would like to send a textile gift of a 'stash starter kit' to support any craftsperson who has lost their home or supplies in the fires. We realize that craft items will be low on the list of priorities at this difficult time but feel that having the chance to create again could be very therapeutic for those who have lost everything.

This offer will be available for at least 12 months so please contact us if you know of anyone in this situation. We would need their current address details and information on whether they are a spinner, weaver, knitter or felter so that appropriate items can be sent. We have received some wonderful donations for the kits from very generous customers, including two spinning wheels!

  

Help with all Your Projects

Don’t forget that we are always happy to assist with your textile projects by phone or email, we like to offer a very personalized service to all our customers.

 

Enjoy your textiles!
