About us

Hello and a very warm welcome to Country Home and Crafts' online boutique. My greatest wish is for you to embrace your creativity. Making something by hand is extremely rewarding. The beautiful finished product at the end makes all the time and effort worthwhile. I believe hand-made items are perfectly imperfect and that’s what makes them wonderfully unique and personal. I want my customer to make their world beautiful and the fabrics, crafts and accessories sold on my website will allow you to do just that.

I grew up in Christchurch, New Zealand. Handcrafts have always been a hobby of mine and I’ve always had a love for fabrics. After completing a business degree, I worked for a number of big companies here in New Zealand and abroad, however, I always yearned to have my own business. Creating handmade crafts in the weekends is what I enjoyed. Now married with two little ones (both busy boys!), I’ve returned to my hometown of Christchurch and set up my own business doing what I love.

I’ve populated my website with a personal selection from all my favourite brands of fabrics and craft accessories. All of the fabrics on my website are perfect for making exquisite quilts and patchwork, beautiful clothing and home decor projects. I hope you love it all as much as I do! 

It’s great to be doing something I feel passionate about; this business is ‘me’ without any doubt. So please put your feet up, relax with a hot cup of tea and enjoy the shopping experience at Country Home and Crafts, I hope you find the treasures you’ve been searching for.
