🐢 SLOWPOKE SALE!
I have more new products waiting to be listed than I have time to properly list them. Product listings (copywriting and photography) took me ages before I became a mum, and now it's like The Neverending Story.
So I thought I'd make it fun and turn it into a game: race the slowpoke (me)! Enjoy 10% off these new products with stock photos and descriptions, until I can find the time to showcase them properly. Everyone wins, and I can free up some more shop storage space.
See the full slowpoke-sale collection here.

Simply by applying a few easy sewing, darning, felting, or crocheting techniques, as well as some sashiko and other favorite embroidery stitches, you can repair your favorite pieces in a transformative way. These techniques don't just save you money, but make your life more joyful, fulfilling and sustainable in an age of disposable "fast fashion."
Author Noriko Misumi teaches you her philosophy of mending and reusing items based on the age-old Japanese concepts of mindfulness and Wabi Sabi (an appreciation of old and imperfect things). In her book, she shows you how to:
Repair any kind of fabric that is torn, ripped or stained-whether knitted or woven
Work with damaged flat or curved surfaces to make them aesthetically pleasing again
Create repairs that blend in, as well as bold or whimsical visible repairs
Darn your handmade or expensive gloves, sweaters and socks to make them look great again!
The joy to be found in working with your hands and the personal artistry you discover within yourself lie at the heart of this book. While nothing lasts forever, there's pleasure, as well as purpose, in appreciating age and imperfection. Joyful Mending allows you to surround yourself with the things that truly give you joy, whether they were given to you by a loved one, picked up in your travels or simply have a special place in your heart.
This shop is in slow mode so I can do alllll the things – including running this shop and running after two tiny tots – and enjoy my life. Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.
I'm currently dispatching orders once a week; place your order by 5pm Thursday Melbourne time (AEST) for dispatch by Monday.
(NOTE: I drop off most orders at my local post office on Fridays, but I'm told they don't physically leave the post office and start making their way to you until Monday.)
If you select Express Post at checkout, it will speed up Australia Post's delivery timeframe but won't speed up my process.
After your order has been packed, you will receive an email notification with your Australia Post tracking number, which you can use to check on the delivery status of your order.
Customers in Northcote, Thornbury and nearby suburbs (subject to capacity) can select local delivery at checkout. Local delivery is extra-slow and coincides with my pram-walking/kid-wrangling schedule, up to one week after purchase. ٩(｡•́‿•̀｡)۶
