My spies report that Elaine Magnin, the San Francisco shop that has been an institution for years and just closed this summer, has reopened under new management and a new name in the same location--3310 Sacramento Street, San Francisco CA 94118. Apparently the phone number is 415/345-8779.
It's now Golden Gate Needlepoint. There's a bit about the shop on this local news site. Look under "Following Up."
I never got anything but the best customer service and terrific prices from Alan when he owned the shop and I expect his former employees will carry on in the same way.
I can't find a website yet but hopefully that will happen soon. If you are in San Francisco, please visit Golden Gate for me and tell the new owners I wish them well. (Many thanks to my local reporter for this good news.)
