Our Philosophy

Welcome to Needlepoint Studio of Sarasota, your store for everything needlepoint. Needlepoint Studio of Sarasota is a fully stocked shop that is focused on offering the most extraordinary hand painted needlepoint canvases with a wide selection of threads, all the needlepoint tools of the trade (accessories), books and embellishments. Originally owned and operated as part of A Good Yarn, the needlepoint section of the store was purchased by Vickie Yohe and is now named Needlepoint Studio of Sarasota. It is co-located with A Good Yarn to enable all our customers to have access to all their fiber art needs at one location.

The Needlepoint Studio of Sarasota is your place for the most current developments in needlepoint techniques, hand painted canvases, embellishment supplies, threads and accessories.  Sarasota is home to the Ringling College of Art and Design. As a result we have access to many local artists that paint custom canvases, embellish an existing canvas and paint exclusive canvases for our store. Our shop is filled with life, laughter, new friends, memorable times and learning. Our group classes, private lessons, and workshops are offered by many of the exceptional national and local teachers.

Needlepoint has changed significantly since the time it was our grandmother’s hobby. There is stump-work, canvas embellishment, ribbon embroidery, beading, black-work, white-work, a world of new fibers, decorative stitches, kumihimo and more. Discover and expand your creativity and use your imagination with decorative stitching and custom canvas design. We are always here to help you make that needlepoint become exceptional and an heirloom for friends and family.

We create wonderful stitch guides as well as offering beautiful finishing.  Proudly, we participate with The Sun Stitchers Sarasota – American Needlepoint Guild, Sun Region – American Embroidery Guild and the National Needlearts Association (TNNA).

Someone knowledgeable is always available to help you. Whether it is learning a new stitch, make thread suggestions, provide a private lessons, help to find the perfect canvas, look for perfect embellishment, provide tips on the latest tools, we are here to support your needlepoint needs.

We look forward to you joining our needlepoint group of friends and family.
