Minerva is a haven for textile lovers

We still have stocks of Selvedge issue 94 


Minerva is a craft, fashion, textile and quilter's bookshop located in Cuba Street, Wellington.



Minerva closes on Christmas Eve and re-opens for business at 10am on Monday 11 January.


While we are closed, we are expecting delivery of more than 60 cartons of freight that we hoped would be here for Christmas.

This includes calendars and diaries, gorgeous books - including the very popular Knitting Comfortably that we have lots of orders for, Making issue 10 - which many of you are also patiently waiting for - and lots more!

So, do come and visit in January and survey the riches!


We thank you for your custom in this, the most challenging of years for one and all.


My you enjoy the Festive Season and greet the New Year with enthusiasm and energy.


We look forward to seeing you from January 11 2021.
