About Us

me 200 pxGidday! I am Christine Abela. I live in Timaru, New Zealand.

Since completing a university computing degree in the early 1980s, when women just didn’t do that sort of thing, I have worked as a programmer and analyst in several large businesses.  

In more recent years (well, if you call 30 years ago recent!), I became a freelance web designer, mainly working on sites for people who have small craft-related businesses.  I have also spent a lot of time as a business consultant, helping people work ON their businesses, not just IN their businesses, to ensure they are selling the right product in the right place at the right price.

I have been able to draw on my experience in running my own online quilting supplies business, Gecko Gully, to assist these clients in setting up and successfully running their online stores.
