: February 2021

  • It has been an interesting month with a return to Level 3 Lockdown for Auckland and then a return to Level 2 and the Matakana was able to resume under strict protocols. It was lovely to see so many people at the Market yesterday (Saturday 20th) from all over the country, making the most of the opportunity to explore this part of the North. I really enjoyed the conversations with the people who visited my stall in the Old Dairy Factory. It was lovely to meet previous customers who came for "just one more item" and to see what new paintings I had available.

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 .
