Sew Pretty Story

Hi my name is Kirsty, I am a mum to two lovely boys, Matthew & Luke and a wife to my amazing husband Justin. I      was born and grew up  in Cape Town, South Africa, where my parents and brother still live. I also met Justin there. We then moved to the UK and spent 9 years in London. We moved to Christchurch, New Zealand, in June 2010, and we absolutely love it and are here to stay!
Sew Pretty started when I noticed there were not many affordable online choices for fabric in New Zealand. I sat down with 2 A4 sheets of paper and drew up a business plan and fell more and more in love with the idea. Sewing is only a recent passion I have discovered, after my 2nd son Luke was born (1 1/2 years ago).
I love the challenge of making things for the first time and started listing some of my handmade items on Felt. I also listed some things on Etsy. It is there that I discovered the joy of making things with quality fabrics and this has increased my passion for wanting this to spread to the New Zealand handmade market. So was born, with a lot of slaving and learning by Justin.
Since then I have absolutely loved getting to know my customers and see the wonderful things they make! Please do email me ( if there is ever any fabric you would like to see in our shop or that I can pre order for you.
