Our stock is extensive however we sometimes temporarily run out of stock.

For books we do not stock, we are happy to place special orders on request.


We also reserve books ahead of publication so you can be assured of receiving your title as soon as it arrives.

We hold a small stock of out of print titles about patchwork and quilting so be sure to enquire if you are seeking a special book.


To enquire about the availability of a book, email us at [email protected] or phone us between 9am and 5.30pm weekdays on our freephone 0800 478 458


Estimated Delivery Times

If the title is in stock, delivery within NZ will be 3-7 days.

If we do not have the title in stock and it is available from our stockists, estimated delivery times are:
Local NZ suppliers – 1 week
Australian suppliers – 10 days
US suppliers – 2-3 weeks
UK suppliers – 2-3 weeks

If we cannot immediately source the title requested – or if for any reason a delay is likely, we will let you know by email.

Terms and Conditions of Delivery

Standard delivery is by New Zealand Post. We charge $4.30 per magazine, $6 for one book, $8 for two or more books, and $9 if your order includes a large format calendar. Please allow 3-7 days for delivery within NZ. Rural addresses commonly take an additional day.


Airmail delivery to Australia is by New Zealand Post. Overseas orders are GST exempt however, we offset the GST against postage so we are able to keep Australian delivery at a cost effective rate of NZ$8 per item.

Please return to Minerva, 237 Cuba Street, Te Aro, Wellington 6011 and ensure they are well packaged as we cannot put damaged books back into stock.
