Macs As New
Business Name:
Long business description:

Norm Dart, founder and owner of Macs As New, started the company with three basic philosophies in mind:

Sell the right product to meet the customer’s needs
Don’t hard sell
Support the product and ensure the customers are satisfied long after they have purchased

These are values that Macs As New still stands by today. The majority of Macs As New sales, come from referrals and repeat business, meaning after 19 years in operation Norm lives and breathes these three principles every day. This has in turn enabled Macs As New to be one of Australia’s most reputable second hand dealers of Apple products. Norm has been around Apple hardware for over 30 years and was a director of Victoria’s largest authorised Apple reseller of its time, Computer Knowledge. Norm headed up service there, with his background as an electrician he soon became intrigued with how computers operated – and as he says, he wasn’t afraid to ask the “dumb questions”. Fast forward to today – Norm has brought this wealth of experience to Macs As New. With it he has the ability to offer concise solutions to any enquiry from prospective clients, whether they be first time or long term users. He will help you make the right decision on hardware based on your requirements. If you are a first time user, Norm will help guide you through the set-up steps and basic functionality. For return users he can assist with data migration to new hardware should that be required. As Norm can attest to, “no question is a dumb question” and Macs As New is more than happy to help.

Twigs + Blossoms Craft Studio
Directory Category:
Long business description:

Twigs + Blossoms Craft Studio is a small, relaxed studio space located in leafy Castle Cove.
Owned and run by a local North Shore Mum with teenage girls, the idea for the studio was fuelled by a trip to Asia where we were able to immerse ourselves in day long classes learning weaving, dying and cooking with local artisans/ chefs. Added to that were lots of requests for sewing and craft classes and parties after closing the boutique store (Twigs + Blossoms) that was located in Killarney Heights.
Trained as a fashion designer and patternmaker, plus 17 years working with product as a buyer, the love of design and making is inherent in Liz’s life from when she was young, always being surrounded by a ‘family of makers’ and artists.
The Summer 2021 School Program has just launched with a ‘Small is the new Big’ Focus to learning. We have focused on Learn to Sew Workshops with a class size of 4 (1:2 ratio) as well as teen classes and macrame making.
We also offer Adult Sewing Classes (started late in 2020, these were a highlight of the year!) and boutique style craft parties in the studio with 2021 hoping to increase from 10 to 12 children under covid safe restrictions.
If you would like to connect with us and receive our monthly updates on what’s on in the studio, please pop through to our website and sign up to our newsletter. Craft is a great way to disconnect and find some zen time in our hectic lives.
