I am the owner of The Needle Works in Austin, Texas and this is the store Blog.
Interests: Welcome to our blog! Since 1978, The Needle Works has been Austin, Texas’ oldest established store for hand painted needlepoint canvases as well as the largest selection of threads in the Texas Hill Country. Specializing in the finest quality of hand painted needlepoint canvases, notions, accessories and needlepoint classes, we attract needlepoint enthusiasts interested in learning the craft from all over the country. Our classes range from beginner classes, where we will teach individuals everything they need to start off, to private lessons, where we can work on anything you would like. We host nationally acclaimed guest instructors as well as our own experts to add variety to every class.
