Welcome to Needlework Unlimited, the Midwest's premiere knitting and needlepoint retail store.


Thank You for Your Patronage

With mixed emotions, we are announcing that we will be closing our doors on December 15th. We’ve searched high and low for the next shop owner, but running a fine needlework store is a lot of hard work and unfortunately we could not find a suitable match before our deadline. We are grateful for the time we had at the store and we wish Karen only the best as she pursues her next adventure in life!

Our weekly newsletters will continue every Tuesday, and we'll be featuring a new special offer every week. If you'd like to receive all of our future announcements directly in your inbox, please subscribe.

The shop originally opened in 1971, giving it a healthy 45 year history in a vibrant neighborhood that is continuing to grow. Thank you so much for supporting us and allowing us to do what we love for so long.

We stock a wide variety of yarns and accessories for your knitting and crocheting pleasure. We also carry an extensive inventory of handpainted needlepoint canvases, as well as a large selection of fibers for stitching even the largest pieces. We are pleased to offer an ever-expanding selection of products for online sale. Please contact us if you don't find what you are looking for here on the website, by phone at 612.925.2454 or by email at

Our fiber expertise is renowned — whether you want assistance with fibers for your canvas or yarn substitution for your sweater or help with simply picking up a dropped stitch. We are delighted to assist fiber enthusiasts of all interests and abilities. See What's New for news about new products and events.

In addition to the selected products offered on this site, we stock much more at our southwest Minneapolis location. We also offer a wide selection of knitting, crochet and needlepoint classes — you may register for any of them online, by phone or in the store. In addition, we provide expert finishing services for needlepoint projects, both locally and nationwide.

We hope you enjoy your shopping experience with Needlework Unlimited. Please contact us with any comments or questions.
