Craft 2.0 and three chances for you to win win win!

I’m running a lucky-as draw for those of you who send me a photo of you wearing your Moonshine Washingline hat! First name I draw will get a $50 gift certificate for my etsy shop, second name $25 and third name $15. This is a good opportunity to indulge in that second (or third or fourth for some of you!) hat that you’ve been eying, or to give someone special a lovely gift. Can be used for a custom order of course. So send your photos on over to and I’ll draw the lucky winners by March 30th. And I’ll share the photos with you here of course.

I’m super stoked to have a stall at the next Craft 2.0 on Saturday March 6th, 11-4pm at The New Dowse, as part of the Wellington Fringe Festival. Should be a real whopbanger. Check out the blog to see some of the awesome crafters who will be there!

ps. Splore was simply sploresome. I found it hard to leave the beautiful Tapapakanga Regional Park. Boogying underwater and swimming up and down the coast to go between playing the marimba and watching the main stage is The Life. So is living on chilled watermelons and pakoras. And I just couldn’t get enough of that lei-tree up there.

The costumes were a hit too. And hopefully only just the beginning. (pps. Meet Spartacus R, in a collaboration with Jacob Perkins & The Nobody known as ‘The Circadian Rhythm Project’: an avant-garde audiovisual spectacular, illuminating the effects of the day-to-day in dreamland with an interactive odyssey through the subconscious of a mind blown by the groove.” Fun times.)

Yippeeyiyay! Time to re-stock. Got some beautiful new fabric. Couldn’t resist.

hello darling hearts

I’ve been m.i.a, at the sewing machine almost non-stop. Been making some new hats and now on to costumes for a performance at SPLORE consisting of capes, crowns and wings. Think kiss meets screamin’ jay hawkins meets the roman empire (!!!) I also made a  jumpsuit last week out of two old towels for a one-piece party and I think I found my new fashion passion. Stay tuned.

Am also working on new hat designs: cloches, cheesecutters, oh my! The newest design has been a hit so far. Loose and flattering with that great profile. So have the hats for kids and babies. Got some lovely light linens especially for the wee ones, and with the back flaps for added protection around the neck and ears in the blazing Southern Hemisphere sun.

And FINALLY have new hats up in the online shop! Check them out below and click on each hat for a closer look.

Will be making more winter hats next. Can’t wait to use some of these beautiful wools I have up my sleeve.

ps. I have a lovely new sewing buddy, her name’s Cedar!

pps. And! I have some lovely new hat stands, courtesy of my crafty husband
