About Us



So who are Knitting Needle Lane – Where are we based – What do we do – What’s our story ??

Knitting Needle Lane was established in 2017 by Camilla. After the closure of Cambridge’s beloved local yarn shop (which rippled shock waves throughout the crafty community) and after seriously considering purchasing it – but realising no extra time to run a shop as owning another local independent business takes a lot of time

Knitting Needle Lane was born ….. !!!

Knitting Needle Lane is a street in the beautiful Norfolk seaside town of Wells-Next-Sea – Camilla has been visiting this town for many years so this seemed a perfect name match.

Camilla has been knitting since the age of 7. Over the years enjoying different skill levels and the wonderful therapeutic properties that needle craft can offer. 

KNL have won various ‘Customer Service’ awards – this means when you visit you are welcomed by a friendly face happy to help you with any request or just listen to your crafty chat !

We also run a variety of workshops – come and join us in our stunningly colourful but mindfully calm space  – workshop spaces are limited to 6 per person which means you have the room and space to breath offering you a lovely crafty space to complete your course – all workshops come with a KNL goodie bag with all the materials you need to complete a course – which means you don’t have to pay for your space and then pay for extras. By creating this space KNL now have all their lovely stock lines on show which means you can also shop onsite.
