made in carterton

It’s official – Carterton is New Zealand’s ‘capital of crafts’. It seems that there’s a ‘creative explosion in Wairarapa’. If you click here and then on the Fishhead cover image, you can read all about it. You can read about the hugely talented Niko Thomsen and then Katie Forman, writer extraordinaire, goes on to talk about ‘Made in Carterton’, a new collaborative formed to support three women and a husband as they strive to live their ideal lifestyles. You know when you come across someone who get’s you, I mean, really get’s what you’re about? Well, Katie is one of those women. All very exciting really, not only for us but also for our rural town where you can be, I have discovered, whoever you want to be. {contented sigh}
