: October 2021

  • OCTOBER 2021
    It is quite a while since I came back to my website. My season ended a bit later than usual and then we had/have Lockdown. As I am in the Auckland Region I am still Locked Down. However, as today is Super Saturday, hopefully we will get a high number of vaccinations, Covid case numbers drop and we can all get back to doing what we enjoy, which for me, is being at the Matakana Market of Saturdays and seeing and talking with my customers.

    Despite not being able to meet you on Saturdays I have had emails, phone calls and orders from customers who are beginning to think about Christmas and in particular posting items overseas. The time lag for posting is growing by the week. As all my creations are as lightweight as I can make them, they are easy and not expensive to post overseas. The sets of 4 Table Mats weigh a mere 200grams, the Table Runners (75cm long) 150grams, and the 6-patch Table Runners (1.23 metres long) weigh only 350grams.

    While I have had this time off over the winter months I have been updating my stock - increasing the supply of Favourites and introducing some new designs. I have started taking photos of examples of what stock I carry now so over the next day or so I will upload them.

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 .
