Needle In A Haystack carries over 100 different types of needlework thread and a wide range of fabric for embroidery, cross-stitch and needlepoint. You can visit them in person, via their toll-free number or on the web at www.needlestack.com. Their thread and fabric selection is in their online catalog and they ship all over the world.
Needle In A Haystack is now in their 3rd location, moving into the new 3,000 square foot space on Clement Avenue in July 2010. The building was originally built in the 1950’s as a pencil factory. The family owned business is still around (from the 20’s) with offices in the building. They own the entire block, including the houses, which were built for employee housing in the 50’s and there was a cafeteria in the building as well.
The building is of post and beam construction with a wonderful open feel to it. The barrel ceiling highlights the old truss system and with it being 24 feet tall at the mid-point gives a great sense of space. The painted walls are seafoam and the carpet is taupe and grey, which is kind of like pebbles on the beach. The store is located in Alameda, an island in the San Francisco Bay, so a beach theme is perfect.
This spring marked the 15 year anniversary at Needle In A Haystack, having opened their doors on March 27, 1998. They plan to have many more years bringing wonderful needlework products to stitchers around the world.
Needle In A Haystack is located at 1734 Clement Ave, in Alameda, CA. Phone 877-HAY-STAC (877-429-7822) www.needlestack.com
