New Zealand Quilt/Patchwork Shops Resource

New Zealand Quilt/Patchwork Shops Resource

Postby melissat » Tue Jun 14, 2011 4:37 pm

Does anybody have a good web-based source for "brick and mortar" quilt/patchwork shops in New Zealand? I'll be spending some time in Auckland, Nelson, Westport, Hokitika, Franz Josef, Wanaka & Queenstown (and points in between).

Many Thanks!

Hi Melissa, I just googled quilt shops in NZ and found the following for South Island. http://www.reocities.com/Heartland/Esta ... sland.html When we visited South Island last spring we visited

Christofer Robyn Quilts
641 Ballantyne Road (airport end 7kms from town)
Wanaka 9382, New Zealand
(03) 443 1810
Open Weekdays 9:30am-5pm; Sat 10am-4pm
It's a small shop out of town in the countryside. As we were on a coach tour we didn't have our own transport so it was the only quilt shop I got to but the ladies were very friendly and helpful. I hope you have a great time.

Melissa, Check out this book by a Britich author. http://www.gaillawther.co.uk/shop/Detai ... category=7 'Glimpses of new Zealand'. The book is full of photos, and 35 different small wallhangings. I bought it in New Zealand and am making the seascape shown on the left hand side of the front cover. A wonderful memory of our holiday! Amazon.com say it is out of print but Gail still seems to have it available on her website. (She and her husband self publish.)
