Hi everyone, I hope you are all safe and well, as today has been a reminder of how easily things can change, with another large earthquake this morning and lots of after shocks it certainly has been busy with phone calls and facebook messages to friends and loved ones in the areas where the earthquake has struck the hardest. I hope that you are all safe and sound wherever you are.
It has also been shocking recently to have lost another craft store here in NZ! It is a constant reminder to us how fragile our industry really is. We work extremely long hours to find new products and manufacture them and make/design kits, and we appreciate the constant support we get from all of you. There are a few groups on line selling products, and if you do see people asking for products or shops in NZ, we would appreciate it if you can suggest us. We are not allowed to self promote on these sites, but other people can recommend us, it is so hard to sit and watch people suggesting going overseas for products when they are right here in NZ. I know sometimes that we are more expensive, and trust me we do everything we can to keep the costs down, but we do pay import duty on everything that comes in, and postage and GST, so that is usually why. We also pay wages and support/sponsor events here in our local communities and NZ that other overseas companies do not.
Remember if you are after something that is not on our website, please email us or ring us, as we may just not have it loaded, or we may know who in NZ does stock it. If you have suggestions for stock please do suggest it, we love feedback and always need to know what you are needing. We are not going anywhere! We are totally focused on keeping NZ made products available right here, and 2017 is going to see some new and amazing products coming out of the store.
