New Auckland Craft Store!

I've been sitting on this little gem of information for a while now, and now it's all going ahead we can announce it to the world! The Little Craft Store is opening at 201 Pt Chevalier Road, and will be open Monday through Saturday. They will be stocking lots of New Zealand yarns (including Knitsch), Felt, Buttons, Threads and Haberdashery — not to mention Belinda's amazing sock knitting book, Blendy Knits Socks!

The shop opens on the 28th of August — this Saturday!
Hours are 10 to 4pm on a Saturday and 10am to 3pm weekdays.
201 Pt Chevalier Road, Pt Chevalier, Auckland

 The shop is going to be run by the lovely Helen, who also happens to be a neighbour of mine (until I move house this week!) she is passionate about all things handmade and has been cooking this idea for ages, fine tuning and making sure it goes well. It's going to be so fantastic to have a store that is locally run and is an alternative to some of the bigger chains.

Go Helen! Can't wait to swing by and have a look once you're open.


  1. Cool! odd opening hours however. 1am - 3pm weekdays? really?

  2. Oh thank you, thank you, thank you (repeat ad nauseum). Can't wait!

  3. thanks 'Anonymous' for 'kindly' pointing out the slight typo — it's actually 10am, missed the zero...

  4. yay fantastic news! Will be so glad to shop locally instead of trekking over to spotlight. All the best for a successful craft shop.

  5. Thank you Jessica for the great plug hope the packing is going well helen xx
