Jenny Luxmore’s tall figure is regularly seen at Classy Crafts Indoor market where she displays and sells a wide range of sewn and knitted items including baby clothes, key fobs, hand towels, oven mitts and aprons, Kiwiana, Christmas gift baskets and much more.

Jenny’s passion is for sewing and she loves to produce quirky novelties which combine their practical use with eye catching appeal.

But Jenny’s many talents do not stop there. This Taranaki girl came to Auckland 10 years ago and joined the Auckland Symphony Orchestra, playing the double bass whilst her husband Craig plays the trombone.

People may not realise such orchestras are voluntary and the orchestra members play for the love of the music and for the pleasure of entertaining others.

Jenny’s full-on commitment to music began as an eight-year-old and has been ongoing ever since.

Why not pop in and see Jenny and our other crafters this coming Saturday on December 5?

Classy Crafts Indoor Market will be buzzing from 9am – 12.30pm at the Picton Centre, 120 Picton Street, Howick, just behind Bayleys Real Estate Building.

Get in early for a wide range of quality hand-crafted products including jewellery, indoor plants wrapped in sphagnum moss and twine, wooden toys, beautifully-sewn household items, local authors with quality books, knitted goods, Christmas novelties and much more which will make unique and practical hand-crafted gifts to delight friends and family at Christmas time.

Enjoy a leisurely walk around the stalls and have an enjoyable chat with our knowledgeable crafters.

The market will also be open at the same venue for every following Saturday until December 19. Remember to shop local and put your $s where your heart is.
