We pack and ship orders within three working days of your order being placed - our goal is to get them to you as soon as possible, so you can start sewing. (Because if you're anything like us, you've probably already chosen your fabric and are eager to get started!)

Let's face it, shipping costs aren't fun. They're especially not fun when dealing with international rates. That's why Sew Indie NZ exists - to take away that pain for New Zealand and Australian sewists!

We like to keep things easy here, so there are only two or three shipping rates for each country.

Shipping rates within New Zealand

  • $1.20 for orders of only notions (note that if you order too many to fit in an envelope, the shipping rate will go up to $4.55)
  • $4.55 for one pattern
  • Free! for orders of two or more patterns

All orders of patterns within New Zealand are sent using Pass the Parcel - tracked, and couriered straight to your door. Orders of notions only are sent via NZ Post, as a standard letter.

Important note: because all items are sent via courier, they can't be shipped to PO Box addresses. If you have a PO Box we recommend you get your order sent to a friend or family member instead.

Shipping rates within Australia

  • $7 for 1-2 patterns
  • $10 for orders of 3 or more patterns

All orders to Australia are sent via (untracked) airmail with NZ Post.

Shipping rates within United States and Canada

  • $16 for 1-2 patterns
  • $24 for orders of 3 or more patterns

All orders to the United States and Canada are sent via (untracked) airmail with NZ Post.
