About Us


Sawmiller’s Quiltery is the ideal place to inspire creativity!  Established in 2008, we are located less than an hour from central Wellington on the grounds of the historic Stonestead Cottage.

Visits to the UK and USA inspired Kevin Bold to create a unique “destination”, setting him on the path to open the Stonestead Tea House in 2007, where patrons have since enjoyed the charming atmosphere and picturesque grounds.

After extensive research, Kevin, along with the help of Yvonne Matthews, decided to move forward with plans for a quaint quilt shop unlike any other. Today this shop
is housed in a building that was relocated and restored onsite, nestled in a beautiful garden setting, with towering trees and a babbling brook, especially for the Sawmiller's Quiltery. 

The combination of our high quality fabrics and patterns, unique location and exceptional customer service really sets us apart from other stores in New Zealand. We offer a welcoming environment where
visitors, friends and family members can enjoy Devonshire Teas whilst quilters browse the store.
