• After the dreadful weather of Winter, Spring is here and that means a return to the Market at the Old Dairy Factory in Matakana for me.

    I have new kiwiana products which make wonderful gifts to send overseas or of course for yourself. They are very well made, original to my own designs, and the domestic items such as table mats and table runners wash and wear extremely well.

    I also have a range of children's quilts - some traditional, others funky and colourful - just right for that special child.

    So I look forward to seeing you at Matakana - the Old Dairy Factory.

  • It is Spring at last and 1 October is the beginning of my 2016/2017 Season at the Old Dairy Factory in Matakana. If you haven't visited the Old Dairy Factory in Matakana, now is the time to come. There are so many artisans, most of them local, who make and sell their original creations at The Old Dairy Factory.

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 .
