In a (gum) nut-shell, this it’s what we’re all about:
A merry band of Australian designers sharing a few of their original and varied designs freely for your personal use
"Among the Gum Trees" is the brainchild of Jenny of ELEFANTZ, who has brought together nine 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 we’re not insane, but we do affectionately refer to each other as “the nutters”, and we look forward to sharing our designs, our news, and our ‘nutty’ journey with you along the way, and among the gum trees!
Here's how it will all happen..........
Starting on Monday 5th October and thereafter on each subsequent Monday of the following eight weeks, there will be a FREE Christmas-themed DESIGN for you to download.
Then after Christmas, on the 7th day of each month starting 7th January 2010, there will be one free design offered to you from each designer, in turn. So, one free design every month for you to use for your personal use.
So without further ado, let me introduce you to the rest of my gorgeous fellow ‘nutters’!
Creative Studios – Judith
Dawn Hay Designs – Dawn
ELEFANTZ – Jenny
JoyPatch - Joy
Mothers Cupboard – Fiona
Sew Much Time, Sew Little Fabric – Paula

As well as the free designs, you will also receive monthly news from our editor and notification of all new for-sale pattern launches. The only thing we ask of YOU… is to please spread the word!
