July 2019 Newsletter

July  2019 Newsletter 40 Coutts Street,Kilbirnie, Wellington 6022 (04) 387 4505jo@sewingdirect.co.nz Our new shop is a big hit! We’ve been at 40 Coutts Street for 3 months now and we love it! The words customers use most often to describe the new shop are “cosy” “warm” “welcoming” “happy” and “nice vibe”. We agree. It was hard work getting here, and there’s more to do before we’re truly settled and organised but we’re delighted with our more compact and easier to manage premises and with our customers’ reactions to the new space.

January 2019 Newsletter

Shop 3, Kilbirnie Plaza, 22 Bay Road Kilbirnie, Wellington 6022 (04) 387 4505 jo@sewingdirect.co.nz BIG NEWS FROM JO If you’ve read between the lines of my recent newsletters you won’t be too surprised to learn that when my 3 year lease on the shop’s premises expires on 31 March (ie in 10 weeks’ time), I won’t be exercising the option to renew it.
