Easter 2014 Hours!

Happy Easter!

Sew Easy is under new ownership (in case you didn’t know)! The old owners have decided to retire after nearly 15 years, and Jenny and Alton are the new faces (along with their young daughter Sara). Feel free to stop in and say hi, introduce yourself, and let us know what it is you like to make. We know this website is horribly out of date, and we’ll be overhauling (or replacing) it as soon as we have some time. In the meantime, we are open for parts of Easter weekend!

Good Friday Apr 18: Regular Hours
Saturday Apr 19: Regular Hours
Easter Sunday Apr 20: CLOSED
Easter Monday Apr 21: Open 11am – 4pm

November 11 Hours

Sew Easy will be open from Noon to Four for your after-the-cenotaph shopping. See you there!

Happy November. Love that extra hour today!

I’m off to the store for the Sunday noon to four shift. Will any knitters gather with their projects? There are a lot of knitting needles waiting to be put away. That should be fun! It’s so sunny and beautiful out, but maybe knitters will want to gather anyway!

Fingerless Gloves Knitting Project

Materials list:?This great little boxed craft is in the store, ready to go in a couple of colours. Each box has all the yarn you?ll need to make a pair of fingerless gloves, and the full instructions. At only $15 it?s a great easy-to-do affordable knitting project.

Or you can come on in and pick out your own yarn from our huge selection!

They?re great for the fall and the start of school. The combination of stitches separates these gloves from most other patterns. It takes a bit of extra work, but they?re beautiful when complete and well worth the effort.

Make sure to send us a picture of your gloves in action.

Meet Punky, the Sew Easy Mascot Monkey

Punky is going on a road trip around the Sunshine Coast for the next couple of months and we’re going to play a game of ‘Guess who got Punk’d!’

We’ll post photos of Punky exploring secret places on our Facebook page… guess correctly where he is and you’ll be entered into a weekly draw for Punky Stuff.

And hey, if you know where Punky is hanging out in this picture, have a guess!
