Well hello there, New Zealand based lovers of sewing. Very pleased to meet you!
And even more pleased (and excited!) to launch a new online store for you all - Sew Indie NZ.
Sew Indie NZ is an online pattern store, dedicated to making independent patterns more easily accessible to New Zealand stitchers. We bring in a wide range of independent women's patterns, from a great mix of talented designers.
Why is this great for you? For three reasons!
- It's a lot cheaper. Let's face it - international shipping costs can be pretty horrid. (In some cases, they can be more than the cost of the pattern you're trying to purchase!) We've taken care of that for you - all shipping is local, and at NZ prices. In fact, it's only $4.95 to have a pattern couriered to your door, or completely free if you order two or more patterns! So you can save your cents to spend on patterns, rather than postage.
- Faster, faster! Sent from New Zealand, via tracked courier, your new patterns will be with you super fast.
- You know exactly how much you're spending. All of our patterns are the same price as you would spend if you bought them directly off the designers website, but you no longer need to think about what the exchange rate is on the day, or get stung with international currency conversion fees. They're all listed in NZ dollars, and the price you see is exactly what you pay.
To start off with, we've got the complete range from three great independent designers inshore - Cashmerette, Closet Case Patterns, and Sew House 7. (We also have two other designers on their way - patterns from Pauline Alice and Colette will be here very soon!) We'll tell you more about the designers and their collections soon - in the meantime, why not go and have a look at them in the store?
