Its All About the Bags!

I have to admit to having a ‘thing’ about bags. If I ever feel like shopping for something really exciting, it always involves bags..  I have even purchased power tools purely because they came in a cute bag.. So of course, when Majacraft brings out […]

Contact Us!

This is a little public service announcement post, prompted by some unexpected website issues (argh technology!)  It seems that our contact form is not working as it should, and while we are receiving your messages from the contact form, it is not sending us your email address with your message so we can’t respond!

If you have tried to contact us in the last few weeks and NOT heard back, please send us an email direct to support@majacraft.co.nz so we can respond to you by reply mail.

We are very sorry about this, the problem is being worked on and hopefully resolved very soon! Meantime we are going to take some deep breaths we hope you will also enjoy a quiet moment at the beach with Suzys shell circle weave 🙂

Majacraft Retreat UK 2017

We have wonderful adventures coming up this year, one of them being the opportunity to be involved in the Majacraft Retreat being held in the UK this October. The lovely Ruth of ‘The Wheel Ewe’ has organised an exciting event that will not only showcase Majacraft tools and equipment, it will create a wonderful opportunity for those in attendance to learn and participate in an excellent range of workshops.

Glynis and Owen will be travelling over to the UK and will be at the retreat to share their deep knowledge of all their spinning wheels, tools and equipment. You can learn how to get the best out of your wheel, share some fab lace spinning with the amazing Stylus accessory, and you can find out how to maintain your wheel to keep it running as good as new.

During the retreat you can also participate in a wonderful range of workshops! Jane Deane will be there for Colour Blending and Yarn Design,  Janet Renouf-Miller is sharing her knowledge of exotic fibres and silks, Elisabeth Kendrick and Sarah Howard are running weaving workshops, including one specific to the Majacraft Dynamic Heddle loom. Dj Stefek will be teaching spindle spinning with the Turkish spindle, and Ruth Robinson will be running spinning workshops for beginners.

If you are anywhere near Edinburgh, or are looking for a fantastic fibre fun filled destination for your travels this year, we are sure you will enjoy the Retreat and this wonderfully rich line up of teachers and subjects! You can read more about the event on Ruths website:

Bobbin Treats!

Limited Edition bobbins? Different colours? Yes! We’ve got them! This is just a little heads-up if you didn’t know about these already, because they are proving very popular and just go to show that us spinners love colour! Last year we brought out some super new Lime Green standard bobbins (there are still just a few left), they look amazing on the wheels and are really fun to use, and being our standard bobbin they fit all our wheels and flyers (except of course the lace and overdrive flyers.)

I love this colour, its so bright and my yarns look awesome on them which makes it even more fun to spin!

Now this year (2016) we have a new colour, in fact are you seeing a pattern here? Each year will see a new Limited Edition bobbin colour! These colours will not be repeated (hence ‘limited edition’), so if you start collecting you will end up with a range of unique bobbins that you can use to colour code your spinning, decorate your studio with, and make your own bobbin rainbow!

We are loving the 2016 colour, and we are not the only ones, these are being snapped up quickly, in fact I think purple is one of the most popular colours for spinners.. maybe we should choose a pretty lilac next year to match, or should we go neon pink?! We don’t know yet either 🙂 But we do know these purple ones will only be available this year and only while stocks last. Check out your local dealer for availability and pricing!

Weaving Circular!

Growth, it’s all about movement, change, and outward expansion. This is what excites me about circular weaving! In my mind, it is an embodiment of these ideas, starting at the centre and working outwards, expanding into the space around it and changing it in a […]
