C4 Date Announced!

View this email in your browser
Like what you see?... Make sure you check out our website!!!!
Hi everyone, hope you are all having a fantastic day, and enjoying this cooler weather.  I hope you all managed to get through the bad weather without any damage, some areas definitely had their fair share, we had quite a few people not manage to get to classes due to flooding and high winds.  One friend went to check on his boat at 1am, and found it had a foot of water in it, so had to sit up in that wind and rain trying to drain it with a pump, said it was a long and stressful night.

The years routine is well and truly underway.  We have our classes sorted for Senz, Take time out with Trina's retreat is underway, and we have been designing and packing kits as fast as we can.  We have listened to what everyone was asking for have remade some of the popular projects that we keep getting asked for.  This week we have re released the Church as a full kit, and the concertina houses (red and green (traditional) or blue and purple (Sam's choice of colour), and we have released the fairy door as a blank kit, and another new coaster art board.    See links and pictures.

We have released the date for C4 - Colour, candy and creative choas, this is based on the extremely successful class we ran last year, this has been released now so you pre book and put in your calendar.  There will be 10 projects, we have not even started designing, but if you enjoyed last years class you will know that it is totally worth it, lunch, morning tea, afternoon tea and drinks all supplied.  You will need your scissors and glue and tape, that is it.  We supply everything else.  We are only taking 50 people at this stage, and last year we sold out, so please book your space and pay your deposit.  There is a link to the website, where you can pay your deposit of $10.00.  The total cost is $130.00 less your $10.00 deposit, the balance is due on the day.  Please we ask for a direct credit for this, when paying don't pay the freight bill, which will automatically charge.

Senz tickets have gone on sale, and we will be selling them in store again this year.

A reminder about opening hours, we do NOT open on a Saturday, so if you are coming through and you want to visit, let us know and we will open for you.  We are usually at work from 7am and finish about 6 to 6.30pm, contact us if you would like to come outside of our normal business hours, it is just that as we are manufacturing we sometimes make a mess and make some noise.    

C4 IS BACK for 2017!
Saturday November 11th 2017, 9am - 6pm

March and summer are here!!!

View this email in your browser
Like what you see? Check out the website - www.imagineif.co.nz
Hi everyone, and finally summer is throwing her weight around!

The tomatoes need constant watering, and passionfruit.. we have had a bumper crop!  I also was down the bottom of the section and found a very overgrown grape plant, and oh wow, were they something else.

This last two weeks have seen us really hitting the preparation of our kits and classes for the shows coming up, this has been a really interesting time, as Sam has been my right hand painter, gluer and general dogsbody, which has been interesting. Not surprisingly, she argues about everything I want her to do! Which in some cases has actually been great for the design... when you have been doing something for a while, you forget that there are others ways of doing things.
(I also told her off for using her phone in work hours, turns out she was looking up the french words for our new coffee house, which is shown below, and not actually on the phone. Whoops! Mums aye!)

Aly finished her Print and Management diploma last year, so she is off to Auckland to receive her graduation certificate in a couple of weeks, so congratulations to her. She is also up for an award for the Top Diploma Student for her year so good luck for that too!!

NEW RELEASES
We have been waiting on new releases from the suppliers, and just starting to see some of the product coming out, yay!  Hope to have these instore soon. If there is anything that you would like please just ask, I don't want to bombard you with emails about pre-orders, but if you do like the look of something I can tell you if it is on order already, or if not I can tell you who else might have it.

BRAND NEW PRODUCTS & IMAGINE IF KITS

Feb Newsletter kits, classes and retreats





Happy Sunday to you all,

I hope you have all had a great couple of weeks, and have managed a little bit of crafting on these hot days.  At least the nights have cooled slightly at the moment, it does mean a bit better sleep, and if there is one thing my husband knows a sleep deprived wife is not a good thing.
The shop has been a hive of activity, with kit after kit being completed.  We are releasing a few each week, and I can tell you that I am super proud of what we are putting out at the moment.

One of the things that we are striving to do, is to make sure NZ has great access to awesome products.  With that in mind, I will tell you that we actually dont have even half of our stock on line.   We do not have time to load it all up, we try and keep our mixed media products right and chipboard and MDF, but that is about it.  If you check the website you will see there is no paper loaded,  we actually stock a lot of paper.  If there is something you are after please dont hesitiate to email me, or phone the shop. If you want anything that you are seeing coming out overseas or on line, contact me, we may have it coming or we can get it for you.  Nothing is to much trouble, and if we dont have it, maybe one of my friends stock it in their shop.  We are working closely with Paperzone in Hamilton, Create and Scrapaholics in Auckland, Artfull Crafts in Timaru and Craftables in Tauranga.  So if I don't have it, or cannot get it, maybe I can help you find someone that does.

You will see this fortnights new kit releases to the right, they are some of the projects we did at C4 and our Christmas party, and were so popular we have released them as kits.

We have the first of our new classes listed below as well, and we have a lot more, we are just waiting on stock being cleared from over seas, before advertising them.
