Our Online Etsy Shop
reminder - we need to close it end of May
It's been a big wet season for our online Etsy Shop. Last week we hit the 2,000 sales mark since opening and much of it was since November 2017. When our roads become impassable from December to end of April we rely on online sales for cash flow. Yet our artists and print workshop are creating all year round and we need to find customers! At the beginning of May, when the road to Gunbalanya finally opened, we began receiving tourists every day. We now have two very enthusiastic teams of printers - women and men. Onsite you will see women printing on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Men print on the other days and its shared by robust negotiation on Saturdays. This amount of activity is great for visitors on site - everyone loves watching as a length of fabric is printed. There's something magical and yet so simple about transforming a length of fabric from blank to patterned in a few moments with a screen and ink. As tourist season kicks in we need to wind down online sales in our Etsy Shop - we simply don't have time to upload photos or pack and send stock out because things get so busy in our onsite shop. Make sure you take advantage of the huge choice of stock still available - more than 300 items - including fabric lengths, books, cushion covers, bags, mats and more.
