Auckland and Palmy coming up!

We are excited about the samples of stashes we are seeing coming through for the upcoming FBBs in Auckland and Palmy. Auckland is oversubscribed  – Palmy is a little bit further off so a few tables still available. We’d love to see you there!

Find out more about the Palmy event and our ‘founder’ in the recent article that appeared on

With a lovely bunch of people, fabric, yummy sweet treats and tons of fabric – we’re looking forward to an awesome Saturday on the 31st in Palmerston North.

If you are from out of the region grab a friend and make a road trip of it. We can recommend op shopping when you’ve had your fill of fabric (if ever!)

We have had a huge amount of fabric donated to Hospice and there are a number of stalls with ‘nana stashes’ so there’s bound to be some amazing finds.

Check out the article from today. Thanks Nick McBride for the write up!

Thanks to all who took part in Auckland’s FBB a couple of weeks back. Another great event with an awesome vibe. Looking forward to Wellington and Palmerston North now!

Two down and two to go!

Two New Zealand FBBs down, and two to go!

Auckland was a huge success again, with the venue proving to be a hit.

Now we’re amping up for Wellington on October 10. Wellington is the home of FBB and always has an amazing range of fabrics, as well as a beautiful cafe set up – vintage cups and AMAZING cakes galore. Make sure you have it in your diary.

We’re reviving some dying crafts with our Granny crochet square and rag rug workshops in Palmerston North. Find out more 

There’s still spaces for stallholders in Palmerston North too – fill out the form if you are interested.
