two more sleeps..

First Thursdays prep is going well. Have 5 Velvet sweaters all made up and all made from different velvets. Also have a range of homemade scrunchies (some velvet of corse), as well as original drawings of the Lopsey Boutique Characters by Lana Lopesi. We have some velvet paintings too, an artform I am determined to revive. On top of all of that we have our staple tees, womens singlets and owl stitch crops. See you at First Thursdays, St Kevin's Arcade on thursday evening

first thursdays prep is coming along nicely

A sneak peak at our first velvet sweater with patch work sleeves. I must admit that I'd be pretty stoked if this didn't sell and I could have it since all of these are now one offs.. hope the horrible auckland weather didn't get you done today! :)

brainwave for a new great idea :)

There was such a big response last night when we ran the competition for the 200th 'liker' of our facebook page to win a Staple Tee, so we're going to run this competition more often. For every  hundredth 'liker' we get, they get something from us as a token of our appreciation.

Also have to say congrats to Richie Mills for being number 200, who will be number 300?

for all you velvet sweater enthusiasts

yes, I am aware that this is not velvet (it's the ribbing) I didn't want to give too much away.. But on the 2nd of June we have a stall at First Thursdays which is an awesome art experience of all sorts which includes a market. It's held in St Kevins Arcade (Krd). Buuut what we are doing are selling one of velvet sweaters in various velvets, crushed, matt, velveteen and perhaps even coloured velvet :) These will also be sold at discounted prices (rewarding those who made the effort to come down)

Be there x

got my baby back today

..and she's sewing like a dream! Managed to get a few velvet sweaters done today ..
