How and why I operate like I do
Zigzag has been in business for 19 years and I really started to grow after going online in 1996. During this time I found myself raising my two children alone and trying to make sure my customers were satisfied and provided with a good service as well.
I maintain an online presence both via this website and via Trade me and with the growth of online shopping I find that every day I have many emails to deal with.
The reason I don't always answer my phone or take phone orders or allow people to come to my home is quite simple. I get a lot of online orders and emails that if I stopped to answer the phone or see people during my working day I would not be able to send out the orders I already have.
For this reason I have many options in place for you. You can order via the online system and choose either credit card for a speedier transaction or you can choose the Direct Debit option if you are a New Zealander. (Coming soon for Australians as well)
Or you can print my
Printable Order form and fax it to 03-3596394 or mail it to 8 Cherry Place Casebrook Christchurch 8051.
I'm sorry but you cannot come to my home and see my products. We do not have a shop set up but a warehouse and as a single mother I am often away during the day attending to other matters in my life.
If you find this inconvenient, I do have very good retail stores stocking my products and they will be more than happy to get an item in for you if you wish.
I also attend a few specialist shows every year and that is always a good opportunity to see the items I stock.
For 2012 you will find me at the
Patches of Tasman Quilt show in April
Creative Fibre Festival in Blenheim in April
and the Embroiderers' Conference 2012 in Christchurch in July
All prices are in New Zealand dollars. This price includes the standard New Zealand Goods and Service Tax. Anybody ordering from a country other than New Zealand will have this amount credited from their final order. If you wish to have an approximate amount for your own records then
multiply the final total by 3, then divide by 23 and credit that amount against your total.
i.e. NZ 100.00 x 3 = $300.00 divided by 23 = 13.05
NZ100.00 minus 13.05 = NZ86.95
GST is removed from full priced items only. Any items on sale or at a special price are sold at a NETT price and there will not be any further reduction.
