After eleven wonderful years in Auckland, Diane and Gordon decided it was time to escape the big city lifestyle. The married couple are keen sailors, so naturally, they were drawn to the beautiful Bay of Islands. Upon further investigation, they had discovered that 'The Sewing Shop' in Kerikeri was for sale, so they put two and two together and knew it was a great opportunity not to be missed. So In March 2016, Diane took over the business, and 'The Sewing Shop' was re-branded as 'All You Needle'. As part of the effort, the shop itself was renovated and the product range expanded for an all-round improved shopping experience. Diane is passionate about inspiring people to create and make things for themselves and hopes that this will show for the futures to come.
