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


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!

You'll find detailed directions on our Directions page.

We are no open for shipping and curbside pickup. 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. Curbside pickup is available Tue-Sat 11-3pm.

We are still very behind on orders as our order volume increased at the same time we were not supposed to be here. We are catching up slowly but it will be quite some time before that happens.

Once we are comfortable with where the COVID-19 numbers are in our area, we will allow in-store visits by appointment through the end of 2020. With many of our customers in the at-risk group doing appointments means we can do a better job of keeping us all safe until a cure and/or vaccine is found. If you want to be on the list for an appointment when they become available, send us an e-mail with 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.
