What’s New
As some of you may or may not know
I have been dipping my creative toes into
the world of Crochet...and I must say I love it
but have found it difficult to find some
of the different yarns that they
use in some of the patterns online
and even harder to the supplies I need
here in Kingaroy or even Australia
and now with the news that Goldies in Kingaroy is
closing at the End of January … I have decided to step up the
yarn section of our store...
so over the last few months i have doing some
research...and the most exciting part is
we are Now Stacking Lion Brand Yarn and
Bernat Handicrafter yarns and we are looking into patons and a
few other brands...Please drop in from time to time and see what we have
or you can visit our eBay and Facebook page if you are not local to see what we
have available...eBay is being set up for the Yarn section by end of this month
these things take time so please be patient….
we are now seeing some of the Knitting and Crochet notions
starting to arrive in store too

We have some other Brands arriving to and we hope to have a
fantastic selection by the time our winter Rolls around
Supplies have started sell so get in fast so you don’t
miss out…
