Yes, Hemp Wholesale Australia has new owners. They are keen to meet and assist you. You will be able to email them using the same admin@hempwa.com email for Customer Service, or give them a call on 07 4182 0442 from 3rd August during office hours which currently remain unchanged (Monday to Friday 10am - 3pm AWST / 12pm - 5pm AEST).  Steven, Janet and Kalina will be able to take orders from Monday 3rd August. We suggest you don't email them with orders before Monday in case your email falls in the gap when email accounts are transferred over at the end of the week.

Stock is in transit - and like much freight currently, may be slow arriving with Covid conditions. Other than new Fabric Sample Sets, it is anticipated that no goods will be able to be shipped before Monday August 10th.

You should be able to LOGIN on the website from 2nd August to be able to browse and plan ahead. Again - you are advised to NOT place an order before Monday 3rd August.

As mentioned earlier, the new owners are a family business located in Bargara, Queensland, where Hemp Wholesale Australia will be located now. They will have a lot to learn, and to get through with orders backlogged through the hibernation, and 'waking up' the business. I do hope you will be as kind and supportive of them as you have been for me and my team.
Thank you all for your patience.

I will be continuing to support and train for some time yet, to help ensure a smooth transition for them and for you.
If you are wondering about how our team is doing, Georgie & Megan are well, employed in new jobs and missing the fabrics as well as missing you. :-) Lucinda has had to postpone her wedding twice due to travel restrictions (her fiance and family in another state), but is holding up well. Barb and Anne would love to have kept making your sample sets but are using their extra time supporting various family members.

When I get more time as handover progresses, I plan to develop my Surface Pattern Design as a freelancer, sew lots more and enjoy time with my garden and family.
My 20 month old grand-daughter wakes up every morning and asks "Go Ma-Ma house?".

We know there is a great future for all our customers and suppliers with the new owners, and we want to give you our sincere THANKS for your support and encouragement.
We are SO grateful that we have been able to be part of your journey.

We are currently in negotiations with a family that are very keen to take over Hemp Wholesale Australia. They look forward to getting to know you, our customers, and to assist you in your projects and businesses.

There is still a hold on trading. No new orders, no new customers, BUT we expect to be able to give you more details around July 10th on when trading will commence again and who the new owners are. If things go to plan there will still be packing up and relocating all the stock and equipment, so still some weeks away yet, but we did want to let you know there is light at the end of the tunnel!

June  Pre  Announcement.                                                                                                                                                                                                   .

Explanatory Message

I’m writing to you a message from my heart. I am sad because after getting very close to being able to pass on the business to a new family that were keen to carry it into the future, the sale did not go through. It is understandable that in the suddenly changed economic climate due to the world pandemic that they were not comfortable to take on a new endeavour. My main sadness is that it means that from 23/3/2020 we have put a hold on trading. No new orders, no new customers.  I am sorry that my health will not allow me to continue.

Our team packed up all the stock on hand, plus furniture and equipment, and moved out of our premises by 31/3/2020. We are all very sad because we have so enjoyed getting to know you, our customers, and assist you in your projects and businesses. You can see many of  the myriad of very special creations our many customers have made on our BLOG. Some of our customers have been with us for the whole 16 ½ years I have been owning and managing the business, and we know that because we can’t supply our customers any longer, it will have a negative effect on you all.
One saying we have in our team is “You can’t do what you can’t do”. If it is just not possible, then there is nothing gained by beating yourself up. An attitude of acceptance of and reconciliation to the circumstances is what we are trying to cultivate. Because of my health, I am not able to continue running the business. I can’t do it. And I can’t guarantee a great future for all my customers and suppliers and staff either.
So, where does the hope come in?  There is hope that Hemp Wholesale Australia will be discovered by someone keen to take it into the future. We have a large quantity of stock. And, when we were expecting to pass on the business, we ordered 2 further shipments, which are still to come. We still have our website with its specially designed functions, we still have our terrific suppliers, and we can still reach out to you, the customers. We will do this, update you, at the next crossroads, sometime later in 2020. 

Sandi Maxwell
Managing Director
