Unwind Craft Cafe is the dream creation of Robyn to provide a warm and inviting place for lovers of vintage, retro, handmade, and anyone who enjoys good old fashioned cafe treats that are made with love, our barista made coffee and tea selection are a good enough reason to just pop in and Unwind.
Why not grab a friend or someone special and enjoy our delicious house made Devonshire tea, fresh whipped cream, house made lemon curd (you may lick the jar as many of our customers do) home made jam with organic fruit from a family property in Rushworth, all served up with an appealing retro vintage feel, vintage tea cups and a tea cozy of course.
You will be greated by our lovely staff and an amazing colourful wall of Bendigo Woollen Mills Yarn, the store is a buzz with all the handmade wares for you to purchase or order.
You will often see someone learning a new craft, or selecting the yarn for a new project, which adds to the special atmosphere at Unwind.
We have a dedicated space for private functions, crafty catch ups for those who want to linger longer, retirement village outings or any other use we may not have thought of yet. With food and beveridges provided from our fantastic menu, let us organise a special gathering for you, add a teacher and we can incorporate a lesson or fun craft activity, perfect for team building or getting your guests involved and making it an extra special event.
With our stressful busy lives, the ever increasing screen and device time, knitting and crochet are back in vogue not only for creativity, also for their fantastic ability to help us relax and Unwind, do not under estimate this truly magical side effect of these time honoured crafts.
Children aged around 10 or older benefit greatly from Knitting and crochet, it is also something that an adult and child can do together, it builds lasting connections and fond memories, not to mention great for manual dexterity and mindfulness.
A great selection of yarn, books, knitting and crochet tools are also available, with someone who actual knows what they are selling and how to use the products (very rare today) so nothing left for you to do, other than book a class, pop in for a cafe treat, or organise that special function.
Let us help you Unwind real soon, we no you deserve it!

I love this free form style as you can't make mistakes Also the combination of knitting & crotchet was great I learnt some new stitches & how to add on to random pieces The price of the class was a little high for me but ok I guess I would make liked a follow up class to be shown how to put things together even for half an hour as I think I will be lost & have some problems Overall it was very enjoyable
Great class with a wonderful knitting teacher. Patient and always willing to help. I have completed a few classes now and I have definitely improved my knitting skills. Great shop with great coffee. Thank you 😀
