Grandmother's Garden opened in 1984. It was the inspiration of Hazel Wolff who had just returned from living in America where she had become 'hooked' on patchwork and quilting. It has grown from those small beginnings to become New Zealand's leading Patchwork and Quilting Store
The store is located at Gordonton in the heart of rural Waikato, and is open 6 days a week. In the midst of an acre of landscaped gardens, the shop itself nestles in the ground floor of an elegant three-storeyed home. There is plenty of on-site parking for the many visitors who come from far and wide.
At last count there were several thousand bolts of cotton fabric to choose from, but the range changes as new fabrics arrive almost daily. Grandmother's Garden is well known for its wonderful range of quilt kits, many of which are exclusive as they are designed by the talented staff and tutors.
Regular printed newsletters, and a weekly emailed letter from Hazel, keep everyone in touch with the latest fabrics and trends. Orders are despatched throughout New Zealand by courier and overseas by NZ Post's Global Mail service. Overseas customers can gain easy access to our fabrics and kits by email.
Whether you come and visit or can only shop by mail you will see the latest fabrics and the newest designs at Grandmother's Garden.
