Sirdar Snuggly 3ply

Wendy Supreme 100% Luxury Cotton Chunky

Magnum 8 Ply

Welcome to the Tauranga Knitting Centre

SALE! On now until 24 October 2020!

Our shop is now open between 9am and 4pm weekdays, and 9am until 12:30pm on Saturday, resuming regular business.

Situated in the 11th Avenue Plaza in the sunny Bay of Plenty, Tauranga Knitting Centre has all you need to create that special something. A vast range of patterns, knitting needles/crochet hooks and yarn, what isn't in the store isn't worth mentioning. And if what you want isn't there, the friendly team will endeavour to get it in for you.

I want to thank all my customers who have supported me over the last 29 years I have been in business. I have sold my shop to Annette and Graham Howard and they will be taking over from me from the 8th November 2020. Just about all of my stock has been reduced in price on my website and my last day of trading will be Saturday the 24th October and then the shop will be closed for 3 weeks for renovation before the new owners open. Thank you once again for all your support.

Lynette Lauder.
