Taree Craft Centre is a not-for-profit group which promotes local craft people and their handmade handicrafts. We also play an important role within the Manning Valley community.
We are located at three great locations in Taree, on the Mid-North Coast of NSW:

This lovely historical building provides the perfect setting to showcase the craft of the Manning Valley. This is the ideal place to shop for that perfect gift for any occasion. There are also 2 large classrooms where regular craft classes are held. At the front of the building is the Cottage Cafe serving morning & afternoon teas and light lunches.

Our large classrooms accommodate ongoing classes in Patchwork/quilting, knitting, crochet, tatting, and scrapbooking. There may also be vacancies in the many self help groups who meet regularly in our rooms. These include lace makers, cake decorators, patchworkers, porcelain artists, and Papercraft artists. These groups welcome enquiries from new members.
The highlight of the year is our annual Craftathon with around 40 quality exhibitors displaying, demonstrating and selling their exquisite crafts. Next Craftathon is 3rd & 4th AUGUST 2013 (Saturday & Sunday).
