We are a team of mum (Jo) & daughter’s (Aly & Sam) + Pauline and Gemma. We have a unique Arts and Craft store based in the small town of Morrinsville, in the Waikato. There are a number of aspects to our store that make us different to other craft stores in New Zealand. We not only stock a huge range of products for the many facets in the Art & Paper crafting worlds but we also design and manufacture our own range of Chipboard shapes, Mdf cutouts, and Acrylic shapes using our own Laser Cutting Machine! We also produce a range of unique Quote Sheets, Prints, Cake toppers and Party / Wedding Invitations and Stationery, that are not available in any other store! We have many wonderful project kits available as well as Classes which are held regularly in our classroom in store. We pride ourselves in being a friendly, knowledgeable, creative and fun ladies, who love crafting, designing, creating, getting our hands dirty and generally making a big mess when we work!
Our physical store is located on the main street of Morrinsville (181 Thames Street), it is easy to find – right next to Heathcotes which is located on the main round-about! Our staff are knowledgeable and happy to share that knowledge with you and do our very best to ensure you get the correct information to enable you to get great results from all your work!
This is another unique aspect to our business! We are the owners, designers, manufacturers and distributors of our own range of Designer Paper and Chipboard Collections for Scrapbooking and card making as well a range of other paper goodies from acetate, tag sheets, and Ephemera Books! We produce everything in store and package and distribute from there too!
