Tomorrow is Winter.

Here we are again, tomorrow is the first day of winter here in Australia, how time flies when you are having fun.
A few weeks ago I read a article in the paper that craft is good for ones health, research has shown that it lowers blood pressure and all sorts of other things that are age -related impairments. Us embroiders have know that all a long that stitching is good for you.

I have just started my 50 year Embroiders Guild challenge ,I am hoping to turn it into a piece of jewellery  cross your fingers that it will work.

Some people have ask us ,where there is a lot of work into dying our Primke threads .As you can see by the photos you first have to skein the thread into large hanks which are white  ,then the thread gets dyed , washed , hang out to dry, made into smaller skeins,   tag ready  for you the customer .

WE started a gift page

I know that Easter was a long time ago,we hope that everyone had a good one.A week after Easter ,we drove to Tanunda for a days outing.The Barossa Vally is a beautiful place to visit , it is about 1 1/2 hours drive from Adelaide.You can get there by driving thru Gawler, Lyndoch to Tanunda, or on the freeway which is the Sturt Hwy and turn off at the Gomerssal rd to Tanunda.We also visit Peter Lehmanns Winery, it is a lovely place to just have a picnic or a glass of wine,as you can see by the photos.

With Mothers Day just around the corner ,why not visit our gift page for some Mothers Day gift idea or brows thru some our pages in our web shop.Here are some gift ideas below.

We hope that all the Mothers out there will have a wonderful Mothers Day. From the three of us at Christina's Craft .
