You'll find us at 2433
Mariner Square Loop, Suite 102, which is two blocks
away from the Target store and Alameda Landing
shopping center just off Webster. Please note, we are NOT
in the shopping center, we are in a small office complex
(Mash Mariner Square) at the corner of Mariner Square
Loop, Marina Village Parkway and Mariner Square Drive
(yes, it's a bit odd). Look for the stand of very tall redwood trees!

Store Hours Fall 2020We are open for shipping, pickup and appointments. You can place an online order and select Curbside Pickup if you do not want us to ship it. If you want to place an order over the phone or via e-mail, be sure to tell us you want curbside and give us your contact information. We are available by phone, e-mail, pickup and appoinments Tue-Sat 11-3pm.
In person store appointments are for a maximum of 1 hour, with 1 person per appointment (no guests). If you plan to come with a friend you will both need appointments and we can make them back-to-back. With our Alameda County COVID-19 numbers are comfortable with 1 person in the store at a time with staff, but not more than that at the present time. If you would like to make an in-person appointment you can call us or e-mail us (put Appointment in the subject line).
We appreciate your support and patience during this extraordinary time. And we hope that you stay safe and healthy and enjoy some stitching time.

With the impact COVID-19 has had on the finishing company we use, they 2020 Christmas deadline for ALL items is September 1st. Anything we receive after that date will still go to them, but it will not be guaranteed to be done by the 2020 holidays.

needlework supplies with extensive selections in fabrics and threads. We carry cross-stitch and counted-thread designs by
a wide range of designers, books on many forms of embroidery and a large

always welcome to visit us, call the shop or e-mail if you're looking
for something specific.

In our on-line catalog you'll find threads,
fabrics, embellishments, books, accessories and several
counted-thread designers. Check it out to see what's
available if you want to purchase on-line. It features only a fraction of what we carry in the
store and you're welcome to contact us to see if we have
an item you can't locate.
If accessories are your passion we carry a variety of needlework tools, hand-turned wood tools, charms, project bags and a host of other items. We also offer custom finishing for your needlework treasures. If you're looking for a gift for your favorite stitcher, check out our online gift ideas.
An oasis from the rush of daily life, we try to make our store like a home away from home. Our courtyard has trees, grass & picnic tables where you can enjoy some outside stitching or just taking a much needed break. After COVID-19 we hope to once again welcome you to stop by the shop, share a pot of tea with us and sit and stitch a while.
Curbside Pickup available Tue-Sat 11am-3pm. Please ring the doorbell on the courtyard side of the building.
