Welcome to Wellington Sewing Centre, NZ's Premier online sewing shop.


Established in 1988 as a sewing machine retail and repair service, Wellington Sewing Centre has grown to become a trusted source of quality supplies for all fabric and yarn-based crafts.  Under new ownership since 2016, we've expanded our yarn and dress fabric selections, developed a full schedule of classes for local adults and children and built our online capability so that creative people all around New Zealand have ready access to our products.   Alongside the changes, we've retained the business's original focus: we sell six brands of new sewing machines and have an expert repair person available to service domestic machines.
