Jayne’s Wool and Fabrics is a unique privately-owned business, we do not belong to a high-street chain of stores. We have a wide and different range of fabrics and a very extensive range of wool.
We stock Bernina & Bernette sewing machines and for crafts we stock a wide range of haberdashery and quilters stands, craft fabric and fabulous beads.
Also available are 4 brands of sewing patterns and most importantly, our staff who have experience in knitting and sewing.
During this time it has only changed ownership once. The present owner, Stephanie, enjoys the challenge and friendships that have been built up over the years.
Fabric and craft shops are becoming very rare as the bigger chain stores move throughout the country. Whakatane is fortunate to have one of the largest privately owned fabric and wool shops in New Zealand and we regularly supply stock to customers nationally and internationally. Because the owners make their choices in stock, you may find many of products are not available in other stores.
In store you can find woven and knitted fashion fabrics, craft fabrics (including NZ and Maori designs), 2-ply through to super chunky knitting yarns.
- Our Haberdashery Range offers you an extensive-embroidery threads range, beads, bag handles, jewellery findings, quilters supplies and dressmaking accessories. We also have a fantastic range of Beads and Beading Accessories.
- We have a great range of knitting patterns to make garments. We also stock cross-stitch kits and embroidery threads.
- Plus we stock Bernina & Bernette Sewing Machines ~ Proud to be the only Bernina dealership in the Eastern Bay of Plenty!
Stephanie and her staff are always available to demonstrate knitting, craft and sewing techniques
