Story: Sewing, knitting and textile crafts
Women have been the primary producers of handcrafted textile items, although men have also
turned their hands to this work (particularly knitting) at times.
During the 19th century and much of the 20th century almost all women knew how to make clothes
and household items, and this work was an important contribution to the family economy. These
textile crafts were United Kingdom traditions imported to New Zealand when English and
Scottish settlers arrived in the 19th century.
While knitting and sewing were commonplace household jobs, they did provide house-bound women
with opportunities for creative expression. Many took pride in their ability to dress their
children and themselves in well-made clothes.
Less immediately practical crafts like embroidery were used to beautify a wide range of items,
from handkerchiefs to tablecloths. Women of limited means could create pleasing home interiors
using their needles and sewing machines.
The craftwork of very skilled women had artistic qualities, though it was rarely seen as fine
art because of its domestic origins.
Home-made to shop-bought
Historically, many women were unpaid housewives, and sewing, mending and knitting were
regular jobs. In the last quarter of the 20th century women entered the paid workforce in
large numbers and had less time to make things at home. Because knitting was portable
and easy to do in conjunction with hands-free tasks and occupations, paid work did not
necessarily put an end to knitting. Female politicians like Mabel Howard and Marilyn
Waring knitted during caucus meetings and parliamentary debates.
The rise of the women’s liberation movement in the late 1960s affected the way women
perceived home crafts. They were seen by some as examples of women’s oppression
– just more chores women were expected to do. This undoubtedly contributed to the decline
of home crafts, but many women did continue to knit and sew, and some recast this work
as a feminist act.
Perhaps more influential in turning women away from home-made everyday items was the rise of
cheap, imported, commercially made clothes and soft furnishings. Tariffs (taxes on imported
goods) which protected local industries were progressively lowered or removed altogether from
In 1992 import licences for clothes were abolished, which meant anyone could import clothes.
Before this, manufactured clothes were relatively expensive.
While imported clothing and textiles from most countries still attracted a modest tariff in
theearly 2000s, tariff reductions and low-waged labour abroad made them much cheaper to
buy than make at home.
In the early 2000s women began to take up knitting, sewing and other textile crafts again in
numbers. This was a worldwide trend evident in other comparable countries and was, in part,
a reaction against mass-produced consumer items.
Craft groups and organisations
Sewing, knitting and other crafts could be solitary activities but sometimes women gathered to
make things together. In 19th-century Waipū, Nova Scotian settlers met at ‘frolics’ with
their wool, hand carders and spinning wheels and made yarn while conversing.
Organised craft groups emerged in the 20th century. The activities programmes of Country
Women’s Institutes, an organisation founded in 1921, regularly included home-craft
demonstrations and sessions, as did those of women’s lyceum clubs. Organisations devoted
to particular crafts were also founded.
