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

Loop, Marina Village Parkway and Mariner Square Drive

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.
