How did your business begin?

In early 2015, our family relocated to Lake Hawea, (near Wanaka) and despite the local cafe/general store serving great muffins, it quickly became apparent that any serious shopping needed to be done online. As a keen stitcher, I struggled to find quality dressmaking fabrics, patterns and haberdashery online AND based in New Zealand. This, combined with my desire for some beautiful European brands that I had fallen in love with while living in France, was the genesis of The Miss Maude Sewing Store. We have since re-located to Greytown (just out of Wellington), but when this little adventure started, Mount Maude was looking over my shoulder….and the name has stuck.

What gets you up in the morning?

Two little girls bursting with energy. I’m not a morning person…so I’m straight to the coffee machine!

When you're not working you are

Helping my two young daughters explore and navigate the world…oh, and I’m slowly working out how to get a vegetable garden established. I think that there are few things better than harvesting your own food. Especially when you get to share it with loved ones.
