Not just another craft shop, we specialize in only needlecraft!

The Needlecraft Barns specializes in supplies for Knitting, Crochet, Needlepoint, Embroidery, Cross Stitch, Tatting, and other needlework arts.

Private Lessons

The Needlecraft Barn will continue to offer one-day workshops that focus on a particular skill or technique.  We now offer the option for private or individual classes to better accommodate you.  You may prefer to work alone or with a few of your friends.  Classes can be scheduled during shop hours for $15, per person, a session, with the understanding that there may be interruptions to attend to customers.  Classes scheduled after hours or in the evenings are $20, per person, a session.  Class fees cover instruction and handouts, materials are extra.

The following list includes many of the classes that have been offered over the past three years.  If there is something you are interested in that is not listed check with us for more details.  We are always looking for new options for classes.
You can call, email, or stop by the shop to arrange for classes.
