A retail outlet in historic Oamaru September 18, 2016 21:23

Rod and I are feeling really fortunate that some of our textiles are displayed in Design Federation in Harbour Street, Oamaru. Thanks Annabel and Meghan!!

It is fabulous seeing a range of our cushions, throws and lengths of fabric in a retail context, giving the public a tactile and visual experience of McLean & Co.

There are a selection of small blankets and throws which are perfect for a youngster, along with some hot water bottle covers complete with their own Fashy hot water bottle. We have lots more in stock, so contact me if you would like to know more or visit us to have a look in person.

 


How to weave a scarf January 26, 2016 14:17

We ended 2015 by completing a fabulous order for a 60m length of Wanaka Tartan, 20m of which I made into scarves for our client to give to her family as Christmas gifts. We worked with her to ensure her tartan design was translated as she wanted it, sourced the yarn and organised the dyeing of the correct colours.  I took photos of each step of the process and have made a powerpoint which I just need to add music to and upload to YouTube for you all to see.

We really enjoyed working with our client to ensure we were able to provide a quality product which was just as she had envisaged and which has now become something special for her family to remember her by in time to come.

You can watch a video of the process on YouTube
