Breaking News: The Needlepointer Has a New Owner

I was surprised to find a notice in my email last night that Edmund, Washington's shop, The Needlepointer, has been sold.  The shop is closed now (the website appears to be still open) and is relocating to Sacramento, CA.   We wish everyone good luck as the shop reinvents itself.

Hug Eddie for me, guys.

Here's what the announcement said:

Dear Stitchers and Friends,
       As some of you may have heard, The Needlepointer is under new ownership and has relocated. Our new owner, Howard Zhou, is very excited to step up and build upon the 29 year legacy of The Needlepointer. Although these are some mighty big shoes, he is not taking on this challenge alone. He has the support of the same team that has been helping you with your needlepoint needs through these past few difficult years.
      As the shop settles into its new home, Stephanie, Amanda, and Daniella, want you to know that we have not abandoned you!! We will continue to support you with clubs, questions, canvases, fiber pulls, virtual consultations, and more. We look forward to offering you even better online access to a wider selection of fibers, along with other benefits of a truly integrated and improved system.
      We asked Howard why he wanted this shop, and he replied, “This is a business of wellness and happiness. Needlepoint is something we choose to do with our precious time. It’s not just a hobby, it is therapy, it is art, and it brings joy to many people.” Hearing this, we knew that he understood just how important needlepoint is to us and that he would continue to honor and respect this great tradition of ours.


     Please continue to email with your questions and concerns. Or call us at 425-252-2277. If we cannot answer, we will respond to your voice mail as soon as we can. For all club inquiries – please continue to and stay tuned for updates from that address regarding your specific club memberships.

Please note our change of address:
The Needlepointer & Club Inc.
1944 Terracina Drive,
Sacramento CA, 95834
