Kilbirnie shop for sewing and knitting needs

July 26, 2013

Wellington Sewing Services, in Kilbirnie Plaza (off Bay Road), is a great shop that probably deserves to be better known. Not only do proprietors Lynnette and Glen stock the largest range of sewing machines in Wellington, in many cases they  can still service and repair older sewing machines.

I took my 1959 Husqvana machine in and a few days later it came back with two new belts and a replacement pattern cam. It sews perfectly again and hopefully is good for another 50 years. Personally, I am grateful to have a service that means I don’t have to throw my much used and faithful old machine away.

As well as machines, they sell quilting fabrics, knitting wool and a full range of haberdashery. They have noticed a resurgence in the numbers of people taking up handcrafts, especially fabric arts and quilting.
