Servicing New Zealand-wide, we make sure to always deliver the highest quality fabric to meet the needs of your textile project.  Whether you are making tea towels for a doll house, or going into business as a seamstress or tailor, our team are passionate about the fabrics we sell and offer the best customer service.

Our Team


Rachael joined the Backstreet Bargains team in 2010 primarily focussing on the financial management area of the business. She works at all levels of the day to day functions of the business, as well as managing staff, payroll, accounts and is part of the buying team.  She is our primary contact when dealing with key account holders.

Rachael has developed a fuller understanding of the use of fabric in design and enjoys working with clients to make sure they look at colour and make it work with their complexion.


Sandy joined us in June 2022, and comes to Backstreet Bargains with 48 years of sewing knowledge.  She works in our warehouse and leads the smooth sailing of our processes there.  She is our "wikisewing" guru, so can help with all those curly sewing questions!  She has her own design label making one off creations which incoporate new and vintage fabrics, and loves sharing her knowledge to inspire others in their love of fabric and sewing.


We are very fortunate to have a great team who are:

Marie & Laura

Between them they will offer you customer service that is second to none.  Their accumulated industry knowledge means they can help you find a solution to almost all of your queries, and you will leave having had a great Backstreet Bargains experience!


Bruce is the owner of the business.  You may see him around the office from time to time, but these days he is actively pursuing semi-retirement after a life-long career in the fabric industry.  We still lean on his industry expertise now and then - but that's only if he answers his phone!
