The shop at 1630 Central St., in Evanston Illinois looks like a fine art gallery. Downstairs, behind a wide bright picture window, the walls are covered with subdued sandy textured fabric. A warm, brown carpet covers the floor.

Against this soothing background the eye is immediately drawn to the bright, vivid needlepoint designs mounted on the wall and illuminated like fine art objects by overhead spotlights.

The shop is The Needle’s Excellency and the designs in a wide range of styles and colors from bright vivid abstract forms to soft landscapes and still lifes, bear out the name.

About Us

Our shop, The Needle’s Excellency, was established in the early seventies.  It was a time of growing popularity for needle arts and we decided to join the trade that promised personal satisfaction in working on a project of your own choice and, if you chose, participating in group workshops and classes. 

In time our classes became the most popular part of our business, with substantial numbers of participants enrolling in our workshops on a continuous basis throughout the years. If you are interested in our schedule of workshops and classes please call.

Needless to say, we carry a wide range of designs, fibers and accessories and provide expert needlepoint finishing and framing.
