Our goal is to support the needs of hand embroidery enthusiasts of all types. Whether your medium is cross stitch, needlepoint, crewel, surface embroidery, wool applique or something similar, we want you to have a place where you can see and experience all the colors and textures. We chose our location to serve locals from the panhandle of Florida to the coast of Mississippi, and the needlework lovers who vacation in this beautiful area. There's much to see here. So, please, come visit and let us know how we can best fill the need. We love connecting with our fellow stitchers and look forward to meeting you. Stop by and say hello!

I visited the store yesterday & today, it’s fabulous! I’m new to needlepoint and Diane taught me how to do the basket weave stitch and answered many other questions I had. Having this store not too far from home is wonderful. I will definitely be back to visit again soon.

Diane was extremely pleasant and helpful, and she has a little bit of a LOT of different types of needlework supplies. Plus some thread lines that you don’t see everywhere. Stop in and I’m sure you’ll find something you like!
