Embroidery and Needlework Shops

Visit Your Local LNS

By

Visiting your local needlework store or LNS, is a great way to catch up on what's new in embroidery, get tips on technique or how to work embroidery stitches, or purchase supplies such as needlework threads and fibers or embroidery fabrics. This list contains independent needlework and embroidery shops in the United States and around the world that are definitely worth a visit.

The list is organized by region, including four areas of the United States as well as a global list. These lists are a work in progress, so if you don't see your favorite local needlework retailer on this list, let me know and the information will be added.

Bear in mind that the information may not always be 100% accurate, as new stores and boutiques open, established shops change location, or a store may disappear altogether. Also, as the lists grow, they may be split into region-specific lists to make your search for a needlework shop even easier.

NOTE: Items that are not clickable in the list below are still in progress and will be loaded to the page as soon as they are ready. Thanks for your patience.
