About Beehive NeedleArts
About the Bees
Beehive NeedleArts was founded in 2007 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The store is owned and operated by a Mother, three of her daughters and one daughter-in-law. After a lifelong pursuit of the art of needlepoint, this group realized their dream of the "perfect needlepoint store."
Our Fiber Collection
Beehive NeedleArts offers over 75 different types of fiber lines to choose from for your needlepoint project. We pride ourselves in carrying every color for each fiber line we carry. We have stitch samples for each line, please refer to these to estimate yardage needed for a given project. Our stitch samples will give you important information about coverage; number of plies, and you will be able to see how the fiber stitches over painted and non-painted areas. All fibers are sold separately. There are no returns or exchanges on fibers.
Our Canvas Collection
Beehive NeedleArts carries only hand-painted needlepoint canvases. We stock and carry hundreds of canvases in our shop. We are able to order canvases that we do not currently have in stock, contact the shop for special orders.
Wednesday Stitch Nights -the ‘hive is buzzing!
Beehive NeedleArts is open on Wednesday evenings until 7pm. This informal stitch gathering provides a wonderful opportunity for sharing ideas and experiences, stitching tips and fiber choices in a fun social gathering for needlepointers of all abilities.
