The Spellbound partnership is located in the quiet and peaceful Mikimiki valley 12 km north of Masterton. Jill Rose is the binding partner and she went through her 4 year apprenticeship with the Government Printing Office. At the time the GPO was the best place to do an apprenticeship.
On completing her trade certificate, Jill went to England and worked for 2½ years at a small bindery in Oxford which was a member of the Blackwells group, a prominent publishing and bookselling chain.
On returning to New Zealand she worked for Collins Olympic Stationery for 4 years, before going back to GPO. 17 years later redundancy allowed her to purchase the last remaining remnants of the old GPO hand bindery and install it in the workshop on the lifestyle block she shares with partner Craig.
