I will be visiting the Palmerston North area during the last three weeks in May, 2013. Since I'm coming from Tucson, Arizona, United States, I'm not familiar with the Palmerston North area. I love both fiber crafts (crochet, spinning, tatting) and paper crafts (especially quilling, parchment craft, tea bag folding, and paper tole).
I would really appreciate any information/suggestions about fiber and paper craft stores, groups, and/or classes in the area. I might also be able to get to Christchurch and would love ideas for that area, as well.
