Etsy update...

My etsy shop has been neglected and I've played with the thought of closing the shop. It'll stay open for now as I really enjoy being part of the etsy community and it's a really good marketing tool.

I don't update it as often as our other shop, but there are still some goodies in my etsy store.

One of those goodies is a scrap stack, freshly uploaded :) I have heaps more scraps so more stacks will follow.

Small shop update...

I've put the nightmares aside and updated the shop with small quantities of the new sumor colours. The rest of the fabric will come with me to the Stitches & Craft show.
We hope to see you at the show... unless you have a really good excuse (like living on the other side of the world).

Back online...

Yay, I'm back online... and able to receive emails again. I hope I didn't miss too much over the last couple of days.

We've been busy printing over the last couple of days. There will be some new colours in the shop soon. Most likely after the show, as I keep on having nightmares about not having enough stock for the show. I'm sure it'll all be fine, but I still feel stressed and pressured by the small amount of time left.

Mail troubles...

I'm having some problems with my hosting account, which includes my mail account.
If you have emailed me since last night... please re-send the email to hollabee [dot] design [at] gmail [dot] com as I can't access my other account at the moment. I'll let you know when things go back to normal... hopefully very soon.

Ink & Spindle photoshoot...

On the weekend we did a little photoshoot for our website & an interview we did recently. We had heaps of fun, lots of giggles and a suitable lunch including yummie things from the local deli. The photos turned out fantastic! Thanks Marcel!

for more photos, visit our flickr page.

For the past two days my thoughts have been with the people affected by the bush fires in Victoria. Although we're safe here in Melbourne and I don't really know anyone who's directly affected, my heart aches thinking about all the lives lost. It goes beyond comprehension...

I'm very proud of all the Australians who are standing strong and form a community. Over 12 million dollars has been collected, and more is still needed. Please visit the Australian Red Cross website to make your donation... you can donate from where-ever you are in the world. The money cannot buy back the lives lost, but it will help building up communities again.

Thank you.

Bright Sumor...

Here are some new colour ways for my Sumor print... which will most likely be released at the Stitches & Craft Show (11 - 15 March @ the Royal Melbourne Showgrounds)

We've bundled our resources once more and will have an exhibition space for Ink & Spindle, which is very exciting because we've never done anything this big (apart from starting the business). We hope that you'll come and visit our stall and/or attend one of our workshops and seminars, which will actually not involve any printing...but it will be crafty and exciting.

Anyway, I'm drifting off... here are the new colour ways:

Sumor in Deep Sea on cream

Sumor in Fuchsia on cream
