T'was a few weeks before Christmas....

It's all about Christmas at l'uccello at the moment, we are busily making Christmas stockings, scented hearts and other lovely things for Christmas orders. We finally signed off on all of our new labels, thanks to the very talented Reina who is making sense of all my crazy ideas. It is very exciting and all products made by us should have their new labels on before the end of next week. I can feel another give away competition coming on to celebrate.

These photos feature some of our fabulous new paper craft products, these ones are called Dresden papers and they are made in Germany, they have been used since Victorian times to make decorations etc.
We are very pleased to announce the first classes at l'uccello, Victorian paper Christmas decorations.

The class is on Sunday the 6th of November from 10am to 1pm at the store. It will be an introduction to making decorations and cards using a combination of traditional paper products and vintage ephemera. We have also imported authentic German glass glitter which is made with sterling silver,  glitter like it used to be to give your decorations a lovely vintage feel. We will also use vintage postcards and antique paper scraps.
We will be making a number of decorations suitable for the tree or as gifts for friends, Christmas crackers, and cards.
The cost will be $65 including a delightful morning tea, materials and tuition. Numbers are very limited and some places are already booked so don't delay if you would like to join us. If the class is over booked we may schedule another class the following weekend.
Please ring the store if you wish to book a spot.

PS we have stacks of new stock in this week including (at last!) gorgeous Artiga striped fabrics in wider 160cm widths, more lovely patchwork fabrics and Mila will be happy to know the birds are in!

Have a fabulous week, if you are wandering up Bourke Street have a look at Kozminsky jewellers, we just did their window today featuring our beloved top hats and antique ribbon rosettes, hoorah. X
