What’s New

As I mentioned last month
I have been
looking at expanding my knowledge and skills in
Crochet and Bag Making ..and I must say I love it
but have found it difficult to find some
of the different yarns and Bag accessories that they
use in some of the patterns online
and even harder to the supplies I need
here in Kingaroy or even Australia
… I have decided to step up the
yarn section of our store along with the Bag accessories…
and the Stabilizers that are used in bag making process…
some of the brands that I will be looking at
are as follows ...Pellon and Vilene along
with Legacy...As some of these
products will be coming in from the USA
it will take a little time
But watch this space for more details
