Something special for our Canterbury clientsJul 19, 2019

We have an exciting treat for clients taking part in the Day of Design next Wednesday (24th July) at the Mainland Design Centre. Appropriately for our Garden City clients Carol and I will be previewing Chivasso's stunning 2019 release: Garden Route (two sneak peek shots below).

This is an urgent Curtain Call!!Jun 19, 2019

This is a great initiative for Aucklanders to be part of... The Parnell Rotary Club is helping Habitat for Humanity to collect curtains for their curtain bank. They are looking for over 2500 curtains for homes without curtains - which are of course much needed in winter.

You can help in three ways: 1/ Ask friends, family, work colleagues if they have any curtains they no longer need. They will be gratefully received by Habitat for Humanity. 2/ You can donate fabric to their curtain bank which will be made into curtains. Which leads us to the third thing you can do... 3/ If you are a keen sewer and want to help to make or repurpose the curtains, Habitat for Humanity are always needing more volunteers.

Please contact Avis Nelson - - if you can help in any of these ways. It would be greatly appreciated!
