Kia ora!

Just in case you haven’t heard, issue #7 of World Sweet World Magazine is out in shops. It came out earlier this month, just before we left for our well deserved holiday (see Hamburg is crafty below). Another absolutely beautiful cover by gifted Greta Menzies (the gal behind Hotchpotch and Gruelboy):

Making Tracks - WSW Issue 7

As a side note, we were interviewed by Nikki Whyte for the latest peppermint magazine (issue 03) – peppermint is a great Australian eco fashion magazine; have a look! We also heard that we got mentioned in the Listener, please, someone, reserve a copy for us til we’re back ;).

We’re in Seattle at the moment and will soon post about cool shops in the Northwest. Til then,

Issue #5 reinstated

Hello all,

fifthIssuein a lucky twist, we got hold of a number of #5 issues that we received back from our distributor. So here it is – for anyone who still wants to order this back issue #5.


Hamburg is crafty

Thursday, September 17th, 2009

Hello from Hamburg, everyone!

We know for sure now that Hamburg is a crafty place. We discovered “Lockengeloet” today, a shop that showcases and partly creates recycled and reappropriated products.


Lockengeloet is also screening Handmade Nation tonight – an inspiring movie about makers, doers and artists in the US.

If you find yourself in Hamburg, you have to go to “Herr Max“, the yummiest cake shop around. We tried out 6 different cakes, and all where very morish. The ambience is authentically alternative independent.

Hello there…

I’m Greta, World Sweet World’s new intern- I’ll be updating this blog for the next few weeks (among other things).

Pleased to meet you!

Thanks, Houghton Valley School!

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

This morning I gave a short talk to one of the senior classes at Houghton Valley Primary School. They were great, and very patient with me as I explained stuff that they probably already knew. They did ask some great questions though, so I guess I had a bit of knowledge that they didn’t.

My particular favorites were, “how much do you earn” (little capitalist!), and “can you leave your email address when you go?”. I’m expecting a few projects to turn up in my inbox in the not-so-distant future.

Thanks for having me, guys!
