The Ninja Knits are having a social meet up at The Incubator in The Tauranga Historic Village on 17th Ave from 9.30am to 12pm. All are welcome. Tea and coffee provided. There is a Koha jar for a small contribution towards the venue. This is a social collective of mad yarn bombers, sultry stitchery, happy hookers and arty nutters. They share yarns, both woolly and tall, laugh heaps, swap patterns, show off their latest projects and have found there is nothing a good needling won't fix.

Head along to the Sunday Village Market at Tauranga Historic Village from 9am - 12.30pm.
