    I visited The Needle Works with a friend while on a business trip. My friend is a huge needlepointer and I just kinda tagged along for moral support, despite never needlepointing before. While there, I ended up buying my first canvas and … More learning to needlepoint! It's a blast! Everyone at the shop was so kind and friendly. The selection of threads and canvases is impressive. I love that they have a room in the back you can needlepoint and I'm guessing they also have classes too. It's a great space. I am just about to finish my canvas and so I ordered another from The Needle Works and it just arrived in the mail today (very quick shipping!). I definitely recommend this place and I'll always remember it as the spot that inspired me to give needlepointing a try!

    This store is actually a 10 star!!!! The staff is friendly from the moment you walk in the door. The thread selection is amazing. The canvases are incredible. The staff is super helpful. They helped with thread selection and recommendations … More to make my canvas look fantastic. I can not wait to return

    Good selection of needlepoint supplies and excellent customer service. Staff person was very helpful on the phone and then she accommodated my virus paranoia by bringing me selections of yarns out onto the porch. I love this place!

    This store was amazing! The lady who helped me was incredibly friendly and was happy to show me around the store and answer all of my questions...and I had many. They were missing one of the threads i needed, but I found a suitable alternative … More from their incredible selection. I am a cross-stitcher, and the floss, fabric and needles i picked up were of the highest quality (DMC, Zweigart, Bohin). When I opened my fabric today to iron it, I found that the edges were secured with a serger to prevent them from fraying...which is such a classy touch! Thank you...I will definitely be back!
