It's Showtime!!!

I can't believe the Melbourne Craft Fair is starting TOMORROW...  After the many weeks of preparation, it is finally here!!!  And we are just SOOOOO excited to bring to you...

The SHOW STOPPER...    The ROLLS ROYCE of kits...     The FABULOUS one and only -- MISS MACAROON!!!

It all starts off with the most gorgeous bear pattern designed by Merilyn Pursell of Bearwildered Bears...
To which we add an exquisite piece of hand-dyed mohair and 100% woollen felt, dyed exclusively for us...
Particular care is taken to ensure that the mohair is teamed up with the most perfect hand-dyed embellishment pack to compliment the colour of the fur.  The packs are bursting with trims, braids, laces, ribbons, beads and sequins all hand picked to ensure that each pack is just delicious. 

Next we have the silkiest of ivory brocades -- to make Miss Macaroon's hat and handbag.  The most luscious pearls are also included to create the bag handles...
Joints, eyes, eye whites and nose threads almost complete the kits, but there is one more thing...
To package them beautifully in a quality perspex box tied with a fluffy organza bow!!!  These kits are soooo beautiful you won't want to open them.  They look amazing and offer fantastic value for money -- there is nothing else you will need to put your Miss Macaroon together -- it's all here!!! 
A word of warning -- these kits are all one-offs (no two are alike) and it is soooo hard deciding on which one, because they are all just gorgeous!!!

Making kits for you, our loyal customers, is a huge part of our business.  We pride ourselves with the kits we offer.   No corners are cut -- each one is prepared with much love and attention to detail and does not go out on the shelf unless we are 200% happy with it.  
We source our embellishments from all corners of the Earth and ensure no stone is left unturned, so that we may bring you the prettiest of the pretties...  Enjoy!!!

For the next four days Kim will be trading at the show with Melissa Kemp from The Art of Teddy Bears, whilst Heather and myself will be at the shop in Tooradin.  We look forward to seeing you...

Bear hugs,
