Fantastic offering

Finally the website for Squnches Craft Network is ready to launch tomorrow on November 1st.

This has been a huge dream of mine for so long, it started out as just a little idea, then a dream and then something which nearly consumed me, to make the best interactive craft business directory around, one that was fun, exciting, full of information and a gallery of photos, where anyone can be a part of it no matter their craft or experience level.

With the help of a really good friend from Inspire Media the website was put together with some really cool software, anyone wanting a website no matter how big or small should get in touch with these guys, they really are fantastic!

For the launch of the website we are offering an amazing deal to all Australian craft businesses.

I will let you all in on a secret now, we are already thinking of expanding to included overseas businesses.

This site was created thanks to a lot of input and many wonderful ideas from everyday people and businesses themselves, it is expected to become something huge!

Not just an ordinary directory, there is a gallery for photos of business stock, your own projects and creations, a calendar for upcoming events where people can comment if they are attending or not and where in the event they might be situated, not only that but a sales section so that any registered and listed business can advertise their upcoming sales.

Its the one stop site for craft businesses and craft minded people, no more searching all over the internet to find what you are looking for, take a look at this site and within moments you can find just what you are looking for.



Not a Good Samaritan, a WONDERFUL Samaritan

Not often do you hear or read a good story in the news, especially one involving a shop owner yelling out “Stop thief!” before a good Samaritan takes off in hot pursuit of this so called thief, only in Hollywood right?

A write up from SA Police News was just that and I would love to share it with you all 🙂


Like a scene from the movies, a Good Samaritan chased a suspected jewellery thief through the streets around the Central Market this morning – not even giving up when the robber jumped into a taxi!

At about 11:30am today, the suspect pinched a gold chain, valued at over $6,000 from a jewellery shop in the Central Market.

The shop owner gave chase yelling “Stop thief!”. A passer-by saw the commotion and joined in the chase, managing to corner the suspect. The jewellery thief handed over the gold chain to the member of the public and then ran off down Morphett Street and jumped into a taxi.

But our Good Samaritan didn’t give up there! He handed the gold chain back to the victim, who had just caught up, and took off after the taxi! He caught up with the taxi in traffic, back in Gouger Street. The taxi driver pulled over, the suspect jumped out of the cab and the foot pursuit was back on.

The witness phoned the police while chasing the suspect through various streets. Police patrols converged on the area and found the exhausted suspect back on Morphett Street. Thanks to the tenacity of the Good Samaritan, the 30-year old man from no fixed place was arrested, charged with robbery and will appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court tomorrow.
