Description - Crafty Girls' Road Trip by Ann Packer

A guide to the many places in New Zealand where 'crafty girls' can buy supplies, attend workshops/seminars and generally spend tons of time and money on their favourite crafts. It's not a showcase for artisans or professionals at the top end; it's aimed at the everyday girl who gets an enormous amount of satisfaction out of 'making it herself', often squeezing in precious craft minutes during the baby's nap, while the toddler is next door playing, or (most often) after the rest of the house is asleep. Includes: Fabric Crafts - patchwork, quilting, applique; Needlework - embroidery, cross-stitch; Doll & Bear Making; Candles, Soaps and the more 'cottage industry' crafts; Wool Crafts - knitting, spinning, weaving, tapestry; It covers: Details of retail outlets; NZ on-line craft retailers eg www needlecraft.co.nz; Craft calendar; details of established craft expos/fairs eg the big one in Waikato in October/November is into its 3rd year in 2004; details of regular exhibitions eg Calico Christmas from the Auckland Patchworker's Guild is annually and is also perfect for Xmas shopping; the 'big names' in NZ craft - where they are based, who they run their workshops through; Suggested itineraries for a day, a weekend, a long weekend, a week in each of the regions.
