Thank you for the nice thoughts.

CP, we are very aware this is an extremely niche market. This is why we are currently sampling some other designs for aprons... aimed at non- thermo owners!

Congratulations Courton....I wish you much success  8)

Can I ask is the apron a bright pink or a watermelon colour?
Also, would tea towels be on the menu one day?....would love to hang one over the oven rail  ;)

Great idea Maddy. Would love some tea towels too.

Great products courton. Wishing you lots of success.

Thanks guys! Busy sampling the next lot at the moment. The apron is a lovely fuchsia colour. It looks nicer in real life than in the pic if you know what I mean. I want to see how the demand for these go before embarking in tea towels. However, having said that  because of my extensive experience in the fabric/ garment area i know suppliers who will do very small quantities for me. The next lot of aprons are what I call witty ones for non-cooks!

Great looking aprons! Well done to your DD and you courton. 
Deedub, that's lovely of you to buy the apron as a gift for thermodiva.

Post by: cookie1 on February 10, 2013, 06:45:01 am
I would be into tea towels too. The apron is lovely but I now have a Tmx one, which I have already had to wash and I haven't had it for a week yet!
Title: Re: Aprons and T-Shirts for Thermo Lovers!

Today the T-shirts for CC and me arrived.  Tried to get DH to take a photo for me but that wasn't successful so here I am in the bathroom taking my own  :-))  Thanks so much Courton, nice fit and I expect a few comments or questions when I wear it out in public.

It's not an easy thing to do CP, I had to take a dozen before I got a decent one and one without the flash showing in the mirror.  I was determined to get it though.

Hi Courton, I just tried to 'like' your facebook page, but it comes up with "Sorry, this page isn't available. The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed."

Does that happen to anyone else, or is it just me?
Title: Re: Aprons and T-Shirts for Thermo Lovers!
Post by: courton on February 24, 2013, 08:57:10 pm
Thanks for letting me know. I think it has to do something with the fact that we had to change the Facebook page to blendstyle aprons since someone else had a Facebook page called blendstyle already.

I have just inserted the facebookblendstyle page as my signature. Hope that helps!

Loving my new HOT PINK apron. it was particularly helpful when i forgot to insert the sealing ring when making a raspberry smoothie!! Washes like a dream...

Hi eams, glad the apron helped as I imagine things would have been rather pinkish red.
Welcome to the forum. If you would like to go over to the introduce yourself section and tell us about your thermomix adventures.

Post by: courton on August 14, 2013, 01:11:46 am
Hi everyone,

I have changed the title to Blendstyle Aprons since the range has expanded (hope the change in subject heading works!)! The aprons are not just for lovers of Thermo appliances!

Have a look at the latest women's and men's aprons on the website http://blendstyle.com.au (http://blendstyle.com.au)
- some of the men's aprons are great as Father's Day gifts!

There is also a very special offer for users of this Forum! With orders over $50, shipping is free - Australia wide! Just type in FORUM in the discount code. This offer is only valid until next Thursday 22 August which will leave ample time for Australia Post to deliver the packages well before Father's Day!

Have fun checking out the website and of course, liking Blendstyle Aprons on Facebook! ;D ;D ;D

Post by: flavourofthemonth on August 14, 2013, 02:14:20 am
Oh wow! I haven't visited the forum for a while but I must say that I have wonderful timing. Thank you for the free shipping promotion.

I've been looking for a gift for my oldest son who loves to cook and happens to hunt deer. Yumm venison. As soon as I saw that men's apron with the deer, I knew I had to buy it for his upcoming 30th birthday. Of course I had to buy myself an apron as well. He he.

So thanks again. Love them!  ;D

Thank you for the lovely comments. On its way to you!
Title: Re: Blendstyle Aprons - special Father's Day promotion
Post by: courton on August 11, 2014, 07:42:40 am
Hi all,
As Father's Day is fast approaching in the next few weeks, I thought I would let you know that the two Men's aprons in my range have been reduced from $34.95 to $18!

And, if you type in the words TMX FORUM in the discount code you will get an additional $10 off on any of the other aprons in the range. So why don't you pick one for the male in your family and one for yourself (or pick a second apron and keep it aside as a pressie!).

I can get two aprons in a $8 Aust Post parcel post bag so that reduces the cost considerably! You will be able to type in the discount code towards the end of the checking out process.

Have fun checking out the range!

Post by: cookie1 on August 13, 2014, 04:56:57 am
Thank Courton. I'm not too sure I could get my DH to wear one. It would be great if he did in the shed and it would save a lot of clothes.
Title: Re: Aprons and T-Shirts for Thermo Lovers!
Post by: courton on August 14, 2014, 03:57:36 am
Yes, I think the world is divided into apron wearers and non-apron wearers Cookie!

And then there are people who only wear half aprons and others who only wear the full apron!

My suspicion is that the young ones do not wear aprons. Am I correct in my assumption?
Title: Re: Aprons and T-Shirts for Thermo Lovers!
Post by: judydawn on August 14, 2014, 04:07:05 am
You are probably right courton, maybe they see it as being old LOL.  What gets me is the number of cooks on TV who don't wear an apron either.  Maybe it's not cool to wear an apron.
Title: Re: Aprons and T-Shirts for Thermo Lovers!
Post by: cookie1 on August 14, 2014, 12:46:51 pm
I must admit my DD wouldn't wear an apron. I'm watching a cooking show at the moment Judy and he doesn't have an apron on.

None of mine wear aprons either Courton and I have to be honest and say that I rarely wear mine as I usually forget about it.  ;)
Title: Re: Aprons and T-Shirts for Thermo Lovers!
Post by: judydawn on August 17, 2014, 02:23:23 am
I would get filthy if I didn't wear an apron :-))  Mine are used whenever I'm cooking and I have a pretty good collection from one source or another now.

Post by: courton on August 17, 2014, 09:15:17 am
Thank you to all the forum members who have taken advantage of the special Father's Day offer for forum members. Just to let you know there are very few Thermo diva aprons left. So if you are interested in that apron for the $10 discount code offer (see details in previous post)I suggest you order soon!  ;)

Hi everyone, I am closing down my online shop since the number of aprons in stock are rapidly depleting. I do not want to order more stock since I am now working in the interior decor space.

So take advantage of the closing down sale! Aprons which were originally between $34.95 and $39.95 are now only $14.95 (with the exception of one style at $19.95). I am planning to close down the online shop in the next week or so. So buy now and keep them aside as presents. I can fit 2 aprons in one $8 Aust Post envelope.
