  • Hello
    It is nearly time again for me to start my Summer Season at the Matakana Market. I will be in the Old Dairy Factory in my usual corner. Covid-19 allowing, I will be back with my hand made homewares on Saturday 3 October. I will have the very popular Table Mats in sets of Four, Table Runners approximately 75cm long and the 1.25 metre Table Runners. All of these are in the beautifully coloured Kiwiana fabrics with Bali Batik borders. Wall hangings, Art Quilts, and the ever popular Pot Mats will also be available. Everything is made in very good quality cotton which when washed still looks new.

    The beauty of my items is that they are very light weight so do not cost an arm and a leg to post. The 75cm Table Runner weighs 150gms, the 4 Table Mats weigh 200gms and the 1.25 metre Table Runner is 300gms.

    I am looking forward to meeting my returning customers again, and of course new customers who are looking for something special and handmade as gifts for themselves or friends, family or guests.

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 .
