Needle In A Haystack
2433 Maringer Square
                        Loop, Suite 102
Golden Gate Fireworks



You'll find us at our new location - 2433 Mariner Square Loop, Suite 102, which is two blocks away from the new 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).

It's about 5 minutes from our previous Clement Avenue location with plenty of parking as well as an outdoor courtyard with picnic tables and trees. You'll find a printable Google Map here and detailed directions on our Directions page. Come check out our new digs and see how we managed to fit our merchandise in a smaller space!

We carry cross-stitch and counted-thread designs by a wide range of designers, books on many forms of embroidery and a large selection of hand-painted needlepoint canvases, including Stitch 'n Zip Kits. You will find a list of many of our threads, fabrics and designers listed here and we add new items in the shop on a regular basis. 

Stitching Has Its Rewards cardOur Stitching Has Its Rewards card is free and you can use it as a Gift Card, a Rewards Card or both. Visit our Stitching Has Its Rewards page for program details and to order a card. If you wish to purchase a Gift Card please visit our Gift Card page.

We have an on-line catalog for our 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. Our on-line catalog 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.

                  Merchant MallIf you're looking for cross-stitch charts you can use our Hoffman Merchant Mall pages. You can order anything from Hoffman's inventory through our secure cart. This is a partnership we have with Hoffman Distributing and we hope it will give you more options to find the items you're looking for.

Stitching TableIf 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. You are always welcome to stop by the shop, share a pot of tea with us and sit and stitch a while.
