The Playful Needle

Portland, OR 97205
The Playful Needle is dedicated to offering the finest hand–painted needlepoint canvases, counted cross–stitch charts and fabrics, and crewel–work kits available.
When the store was established in 1996, it was our mission to bring to Portland the threads and yarns that elevate needlework to the level of artistry and make stitching relaxing, fun, and rewarding. We are proud that we have succeeded in this endeavor, having made many friends along the way. The store now carries nearly 70 different types of needlework threads and most are present in complete color lines. As a full service needlework store, we also offer custom needle art finishing, needle art framing, painted canvas design, and counted thread design. Interested in classes? We'll custom–tailor them for you.
