Knitnstitch offers a range of quailty products - from international and leading NZ sourced yarn, to accessories, noptions, needles and stitching kits - covering the full spectrum of knitting, crochet and stitching needs for every budget and for every ability level.

Knitnstitch products are available both online and from our new bigger store located in Mt Albert, Auckland, New Zealand.

What I strive to do in my store is to engage the maker-customer, not merely to shop but to explore the many choices there are in terms of design, colour, technique, fibre choice and tactile experiences in their hand knitting.
Where people want to undertake making garments, I help guide them through fit, style & silhouette, as well as the technical aspects of the textile they will be making with respect to suitability, durability and laundering care. This accords with my own personal ethic which is for handmade, couture garments – sewn and knitted - with care and attention to quality and a focus on enjoying the amount of time involved in this making process.
My point of difference, I believe, is that I allow my customers to enter into a creative collaborative space to really experience what artisan yarns and quality tools of making are all about.
