I've never actually been in there but there is a sewing type shop by the warehouse that has a quilt and old Singer sewing machine in the window.There are a lot more ornament type gift stores too which could be nice to look around.

Absolutely head out to Rangiora. There is a quilters shop by the Warehouse, wander down the main street which has some nice clothing and gift shops. Have a nice coffee at the Good Street Deli. Have a lovely day out

Take her here, yummy food, gorgeous coffee, and you can watch them decorate the cakes.

Yes, There is a lovely quilting shop there and a couple of other similar places to browse. It's a fantastic place to get away from the ruins and the dust. I shouldn't have said that really because now the secret's out.

Thanks so much everyone! I am so looking forward to it. One day we dont have toe done the overals and feed the 350 calves as others are doing it! We can be ladies and enjoy the special time we hardly have together.

What's the museum out there!My aunt's funeral was held there, and we spent time poking around.Fascinating.

There is a small museum in Good Street, but you are probably referring to Northbrook Museum - lots of things to look at there, open by appointment - http://rossburnreceptions.co.nz/4Museum.html
