Our Final Farewell

Standard

To all of our old friends & the many new ones we made during our sale:

The service of our fine needlepoint finishers can now be accessed at 3 Kittens in Mendota Heights. You can reach the staff at this shop for more information via phone at 651-457-4969. Please be patient with them as they set up for the increased volumes of finishing requests they’re sure to receive.

Many of you have also asked, “where will I shop now?”

If you like being able to see and feel products in person or ask knowledgeable staff for assistance regarding fibers and instruction, my advice to you is to always shop at a local brick and mortar store. We have many in the Twin Cities from which to choose — go in, introduce yourself, tell them you come from Needlework Unlimited, and ask them to show you their shop and why you should patronize them.

Shopping locally will also help you discover more and continually improving products in the other shops’ inventory.

Happy Knitting and Stitching in the New Year,
Karen & the staff of Needlework Unlimited

Fill Your Own Grab Bags

yarn-fibers-grab-bags

We are now offering two sizes of grab bags to suit your preference: one for yarn and one for fibers (no mixing between sizes). Each bag is only $10 — and you pick the contents!

Whatever YARN you can fit in the larger sized grab bag goes home with you for just $10/bag — as long as the bag closes! We filled ours with a variety of yarns that would normally retail for well over $85 (at least 85% off the original price).

Whatever FIBERS you can fit in the smaller sized grab bag is yours to keep for just $10/bag. The bag needs to be able to shut in order to join your inventory. We filled a bag with some of our favorite novelty threads, silk fibers, and vibrant colors we couldn’t resist.

Make sure to squeeze all of the air out of the bag to fit more yarn or fibers in!

Inventory is moving very quickly now, so make sure to visit sooner so you can to find the best products. On Thursday, these grab bags will only be $5/bag… but the products you’ve been eyeing may be gone!

Everything Else: 50–75% Off

Bring Cash and Your Best Offer

You won’t find such deeply discounted prices like this anywhere else! We still have many quality yarns, novelty threads, beautiful needlepoint canvasses, and unique buttons that need good homes.

Plan ahead for your spring/summer. If you’re planning to travel somewhere warm over the next few months, consider starting a project that will be perfect for summer. We have cottons, silk, and linen yarns that would all transform into beautiful accessories or garments.

Also be sure to browse our finished pattern sample sweaters, scarves, hats, and more. Find a great gift for a loved one — or yourself!

Winter Break Activities for Kids

The holidays are approaching quickly and soon students will be out of school for a few weeks. If you’re looking for some easy crafting activities, look no further than our wide stock of fabrics from the finishing department.

We’ve found some great activities from Babble Dabble Do. Search for “fabric,” “buttons,” “threads,” or “ribbons” and you’re sure to match a project with supplies you can find in our shop.


We have a huge variety of miscellaneous office supplies and retail wares for sale, including shelving, tables, and chairs. We are selling our cash registers, security system, grid shelving units, office supplies, and so on.

In these final three days, we’ll sell everything for at least half off of the marked price, too — just make your best offer!

Thursday Only: Bring Your Best Offer

On our final day, we need to be ready to move out. Make us an offer on any of our remaining fixtures, supplies, or accessories.

Needlepoint Floor Frames

If you needlepoint often enough, chances are that you’re either sitting at a table or constantly shifting how you’re holding your work. These floor frames are guaranteed to make your needlepointing life easier.

They hold your work firmly and reliably and ensure that you can quickly return to your work if you need to step away. Your hands will be more easily available for other quick tasks while you work.

Treat yourself to one of these — or ask a special someone to pick one up for you to celebrate this holiday season!

Please be sure to browse our racks of patterns when you visit us — you might even find some inspiration for using yarns you’ve stashed.

Thank You for Your Patronage

Standard

With mixed emotions, we are announcing that we will be closing our doors on December 15th. We’ve searched high and low for the next shop owner, but running a fine needlework store is a lot of hard work and unfortunately we could not find a suitable match before our deadline. We are grateful for the time we had at the store and we wish Karen only the best as she pursues her next adventure in life!

This week, we will be closed today and tomorrow so we can prepare for a private event on Thursday and Friday. We will open to the public on Saturday, October 15 with our normal hours, at which point all regular price, in stock merchandise will be 25% off until it’s gone.
