I will be visiting friends in Franklin in a few weeks time and was just wondering if anyone had any recommendations of good fabric stores to see while I was there. Not Spotlight, obviously ;) But if there are any sewing/quilting/fabric stores in or near Pukekohe/Manukau/Auckland that are particularly worth visiting please let me know :)

There is or was a very good craft shop in Papatoetoe (Hunter's corner part) I haven't been there for years so can't tell you if it is still there. Over Queens Birthday w/e there is usually a very good craft and hobby show on at Henderson. Have picked up some very good craft stuff there in past years.
Fabricland in O'shannesy street Papakura has a comprehensive range of materials but it's general fabric rather than specialist quilting, but worth phoning them to find out what they have. If you PM me, I'll pass a phone number for a friend who does a lot of quilting and she can let you know where to get supplies.

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

Try Davids Emporium in Manukau. They do generalist kind of fabric store but I think I saw some quilting stuff last time I was there. They are on Cavendish Drive.

Designer textiles!!!!! They are in Otara just off the motorway offramp (very easy to find). Have heaps of fabrics inc lots of different merino weights, pumpkin patch etc I'm not sure about quilting fabrics, but if they're selection is to go by I'm sure they'd have something.
