June 2015 News - We will moving
locations before the end of August.
It's time to downsize into a more
manageable space and we will be moving elsewhere in
Alameda before the end of August. As soon as we have
secured a new location we'll post the details. We are
starting to "clean house" in earnest, before the move so
check our Sale page for
discounted items, we'll update it as we have time to add
things to it.
At Needle In A Haystack we specialize in hard-to-find 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 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.
Our 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.
If 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.
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. Do you want to finish your work with something other than a frame or custom finishing? We have a selection of boxes, leather goods and other fun finishing items for you to choose from. 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. We have
tables where you can work on your project or spread out
items to consider.
You are always welcome to stop by the shop anytime, share a pot of tea with us and sit and stitch a while.
Tuesday - Saturday 11-5
We have both a front and rear entrance. The
front entrance on Clement Avenue has a few steps to get
into the shop. The rear entrance, off the parking lot is
flat so is more suitable for wheeled devices - or if you
just don't like stairs. If you park in the lot please use
the 3 spaces marked NEEDLE on the Union Street side of the
lot. We do have plenty of street parking on Clement, Union
and Minturn. We hope to see you soon!
