Hello and Welcome!

Most New Zealand parents enjoy getting about with their little one in the pram. Especially on cooler days when it feels great to get out in the crisp, fresh air! But do you find yourself constantly picking your child’s blankets up off the ground when they inevitably kick them off? Lost a shoe or socks?

Enter the Powell Family – a rural kiwi family – who have had these problems on a day to day basis with their eldest son Joshua before they discovered Fantail's Nest.


“When we became parents, we would take Joshua to all sorts of places, walks on the lifestyle block, speedway, and the all important coffee trips in town, we quickly learned that he loved to untuck and kick off his pram blanket or "Snuggy" and it would get caught in the wheel."

Having known 'Fantail's Nest' original Founder Michelle for a long time, Rosie was inspired and in awe of her rural entrepreneurial prowess and ethic.  When they had heard that the business was up for sale, Rosie leapt into action. She had always said, "if i were to have any business of my own, I would love for it to be something along the lines of Fantail's Nest."


The journey to purchase was not an easy one, being heavily pregnant with second son Phillip, Rosie approached her trusted financial adviser who was so supportive and encouraging, he had approached banks left right and centre, due to a combination of lending restrictions being tighter, and being pregnant, the answer was a firm "NO" from the banks.  This wasn't over, Nick then suggested he put his beloved boat up for sale so they could purchase it outright. 30 minutes after listing the boat, it was sold and the adventure of owning Fantails Nest began.

"I've dabbled in sewing for the past 17 years, I love inventing and making things happen, so I started off with my own Facebook page for another business. 


I had designed and made maternity support pillows for sale and that fabulous  journey has led us to now, continuing on where Michelle had left off, with a very special and incredible brand with the most amazing products made by myself and my family."

Look out for more exciting additions Rosie is planning on introducing to the Fantail’s Nest NZ range!

Determination to carve a career out of something she loved doing, but that also worked in with her children and supported her family was the huge drive. Now we are a family owned and family operated Nest, from picking fabrics to manufacture to photography, it brings a whole new meaning to "From our family to yours"


Rosie has always loved a creative and challenging outlet, It keeps her going, even when two energetic young boys will be creating chaos around the house and workroom! Running a small, rural business has its challenges, but Rosie and her family are up for all of it!
