All you need is your imagination.

We have everything else.

Welcome to Tauranga Knitting Centre

Tauranga Knitting Centre offers a vast range of yarns, knitting needles, crochet hooks, patterns, accessories and everything else you need to create that special something.

Often referred to as ‘simply the best yarn shop around’, we sell locally to our Tauranga and Mount Maunganui customers visiting our store in the 11th Avenue Plaza in the sunny Bay of Plenty, and to our national customers through our online shop.

Tauranga Knitting Centre caters to all budgets, from great value acrylics to top of the line yarns like Rowan and Touch Yarns, merino, alpaca, possum, and so much more.

Can’t find what you’re after? Get in touch with us and Annette and Sue will endeavor to get it in for you!

Better, brighter and just beautiful

During the past two years with the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen an upsurge in people – young and old, men and women – taking up the knitting needles and learning the craft of knitting and crocheting.

With a newly refurbished store which is light, and bright and the introduction of some new and exciting products, Annette and Graham are looking forward to continuing the service offered over the years to the Tauranga knitting community and New Zealand at large.

Although Lynette has retired, that wealth of knowledge is not lost.

Annette and Sue are here to help. If you have a problem and we do not know the answer, we will endeavor to source the answer or a work around.

If you can’t knit or crochet or just don’t have the time in your busy schedule to create that special bespoke item for you or someone special, that’s okay too. Just talk to the team and we can get the job done for you.
