JULY 2018

We are certainly well into winter now and I am on my Winter Break from the Matakana Market. My season runs from October to Queen's Birthday in June and then I have 4 months off to make new items for the next season and to take a holiday in the Sun!

Thank you to all my customers - local, New Zealand-wide and International. It has been a pleasure meeting you and being able to provide you with just the right item for your own home or as a gift for family and friends. I have really enjoyed our conversations and lots of laughs as well.

There are some new fabric designs for the coming year as well as new batiks. I am in the process of updating this website to have examples of everything I have to sell - kiwiana table mats, table centers, long table runners, wall hangings, pot mats, quilt art wall hangings, children's play quilts as well as paintings.

Welcome to the Greenleas Handcrafts website.

 I sell only from the Matakana Market or directly from home - see the Contact Us page for details.

 All items are made by me in my workroom in Snells Beach from very good quality cotton.

The Art Quilts are original one-off pieces. They are sometimes appliqued, sometimes they are collage with beading, painting, or  layered fabrics. Every one is unique and has a sleeve at the back for the insertion of a rod for hanging.

 The Children's Play Quilts are also individual and colourful made from hardwearing cotton. They are all fully  machine washable.

Kiwiana tableware (table mats and table runners) and wallhangings are attractive, lightweight but hardwearing.

I look forward to seeing you at the Old Dairy Factory, Matakana Market .
