We’re all in festive mode here at The Country Yard – our decorations are up, our spirits are high, and we’re all in the mood to celebrate!
Our recent Christmas Craft Night was a huge success, and a merry time was had by all. Our craft workshop was filled with joy as Santa’s cheeky elves spread the festive spirit – lots of laughter, a little sewing, and plenty of eating and drinking of course! We’re so happy that so many of our lovely customers and friends came along, it really was a fantastic evening and we’ll be sure to have another one next Christmas.
Merry Christmas to You Block of the Month
Speaking of the big day, the aptly named ‘A Merry Christmas to You’ block of the month continues the festive theme, and would make a gorgeous project for anyone who loves to stitch! This quilt features a combination of beautiful stitch work and applique, with simple piecing giving the blocks beautiful detail. If you’re not familiar with our Block of the Month process, it’s very much like unwrapping a new gift every month for the duration of the project – you won’t know what the block looks like that you’ll be working on, but the end results are guaranteed to be stunning!
You can view a selection of our Blocks of the Month online.
As much as we love what we do, we also need to close the store for a little R&R time – and to get things ready for the new year! These are our business hours for the Christmas period, so if there’s anything you need for your holiday crafting, be sure to come in and see us soon.
- Open Tues 22nd December
- Open Wed 23rd December
- CLOSED 24th December – Tues 5th January
- Reopening Weds 6th January 2016
Of course we have plenty of exciting products, workshops and events lined up for the new year – but we don’t want to give too much away yet! One of our first events will be the official New Year’s Launch – so pencil Saturday 27th February 2016 in your diaries, and we’ll tell you more soon.
Have Family Overseas?
Here’s a novel idea: instead of sending parcels to family in NZ, why not call us and arrange for a store credit or a gift voucher? The perfect gift for any keen crafters, we have a huge amount of crafting products and of course many fun workshops. Plus it’s always easier to keep it local! So be sure to let your overseas family and friends know that we’re here, and we’re always happy to help organise gifts.
So as we wrap up for the Christmas holidays, we’d like to send out a big thank you once more to all of our loyal customers: without you, none of this would be possible!
Merry Christmas to you all, and happy stitching from the team here at The Country Yard!
