Kate also runs The Ariundle Centre, a family run business that evolved from Cosy Knits, a knitting business established in 1978. The Ariundle Centre first opened in 1990. The original building was the tea room in a black corrugated shed, with a plastic lean-to for crafts. However, the craft room only survived a few years due to an almighty gale, but the craft workshops mushroomed and ten years later, the tearoom and craft rooms were joined and the accommodation was completed.

The Ariundle Centre sells crafts, and run workshops in the craft rooms including felt making, spinning, natural dyeing, basket making and landscape painting. The Ariundle Centre also serves tasty food and offers comfortable accommodation.
