Latest News: - (website last updated 9th May, 2013)
I am away teaching in Canada for four weeks. During this time Bek will be holding the fort and packing the orders for me. Orders will be posted out weekly rather than the usual daily mail run during this time.
The second running of the Rose Butterfly cyber class is now open for bookings - check out the cyber class page of the website for further information.
Australia Post is once again raising their prices - this being the second time in the past six months. While I have not put up my postage rates in quite some time and have been wearing the previous rises, I can no longer afford to do so and so am increasing my postage charges.
The price for sending a parcel with 1 or 2 kits within Australia is now $10.00 and the price for 3 or 4 kits is now $15.00. The price for 5+ kits is still charged at cost of postage and packaging.
The postage for overseas customers is still charged at cost - but please be aware that Australia Post has increased their prices on overseas mail as well - now charging in 500g increments rather than the previous 250g increments and also changing the four postal zones for charging into eight, making UK, European and Middle Eastern customers hardest hit. Please remember though - that overseas customers do have the gst tax removed, making their purchases a little less costly. Also, please remember that I am only too happy to work out a quote for you on the cost of your postage as well as the reduced cost of your kits/supplies so that you know exactly what your order will cost - just send me an email.
Framing service now being offered! Thanks to Rosemary, (Hi Rosemary!) I am now offering a framing service to my customers. If you don't have a good framer and like the way that I frame my work, I can organise framing for you through the framer that I use. Please contact me for further information.

What's On - Exhibitions
ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image) at Federation Square in Melbourne has a stunning exhibition running now until August 18 - I haven't been as yet but have it pencilled into my diary to go!
It features costumes from Hollywood movies from the Victoria and Albert Museum collection and will be stunning to see. For more information, check out http://www.acmi.net.au
If you haven't checked out their permanent display, this is also well worth a look. This area also has some costumes and Cate Blanchett's Oscar is on display beside one of her gowns. This display has things for all ages - especially children - so whether you have primary school aged kiddies or teenagers - they will enjoy the permanent display area.
Rose Butterfly - This the first project in my online Cyber Workshops. This project is unavailable for regular purchase at this time - it is only available to participants in the Rose Butterfly Cyber Workshop. More information on the workshop is posted on the Cyber Class Page of the website.
