Exciting Launch of Among The Gum Tress!

This exciting day has finally arrived!

Today 'our' big SECRET is revealed and we can now share with all of you our fantastic new blog Among the Gum Trees

In a (gum) nut-shell this is what were about:


We are a merry band of Australian Designers sharing a few of our original and varied designs freely for your personal use.


'Among the Gum Trees' is the brainchild of Jenny of Elefantz, who has bought together 9 established and emerging designers to offer something new and exciting to the world......their own original designs... to download free of charge. Free of charge?! Are we mad?!


Well no, but we do affectionately refer to each other as ' the Nutters'... he he... and we look forward to sharing our designs, our news and our 'nutty journey' along the way with you, and among the gum trees!

SO when is this happening?

Starting on Monday 5th October and each Monday after that for 8 weeks, there will be a FREE Christmas themed design for you to download. With a free Christmas design offered to you weekly you will have your handmade Christmas all wrapped up with time to spare!



Then after Christmas, on the 7th of each month, starting 7th January 2010 there will be one FREE design a month from one of the 9 'Gumtree Designers'. So that means one FREE design a month for 9 months FREE for your personal use to download. As well as free designs, you will be able to read monthly news from our editor and notification of all new for sale pattern releases.



Now please let me introduce to you the rest of my fellow 'Nutters'



Creative Studio ( Judith),Elefantz ( Jenny), Joypatch ( Joy), Mothers Cupboard ( Fiona), Sew Much Time, Sew Little Fabric( Paula), Sew Useful Designs ( Vikki), Tozz's corner (Vicki) Willowberry Designs ( Cheryl )



NOW because we are a generous bunch of nuts, we are EACH HAVING A GIVEAWAY to celebrate the launch of Among the Gum Trees. And you can enter all 9 of them!...... But as we have become good at teasing..... We will be launching our ' GIVEAWAYS' tomorrow!!!!



So in the meantime please start spreading the word and add our Among the Gum Trees button to your blog! I look forward to launching my 'Giveaway' tomorrow and if you become a follower of my blog I will give you an extra entry!



Hugs and Blessings
