Berry Patch Cottage shop closing

It was with some sadness that I announced in late January that Berry Patch Cottage was closing as a fabric and crafts retailer.  The website will be closed after March 30th, and as soon as practical I will have the www.berrypatchcottage.co.nz website address point here, to my blog.


The last 5 years, since I opened BPC, has been a challenging but amazing journey.  I have learnt so much!  And built my fabric and yarn stash too much!!  And with no time to use it!!!  But when I step back and consider the reasons why I opened in the first place, I have not achieved those goals.  I have 3 gorgeous kids (one of who arrived during this time), and an amazing husband, who has been incredibly supportive and patient throughout this journey.  And it is for them that I have decided to call it quits on the retail business and go back to being:

...a Mum


...a Wife


...an employee in my career field (packaging technology)


...and someone who crafts for pleasure, and have the time to be able to make and gift hand-made items to friends and family whom I know will appreciate them.






So, if you have come here looking for my online shop - I am sorry to disappoint you.  If you click on the "shop" tab above it will show you where I am selling off the last of the residual stock.

This blog will be a space where I can share my passion for fabric and yarn based crafts.  What will hopefully be developing photograph and design skills...

And an obsession with coffee, and all things berry...


Happy Sewing!!
