Welcome to the Needle Emporium
The Needle Emporium is now in its 32nd year of serving customers. The store is located in a historic house in the town of Ancaster, just on the outskirts of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. We are strategically located just off Highway 403, thus making us extremely easy to find from any direction.
Eco Wash Bags
Created by the experts at Soak, this Eco Wash Bag is designed to keep all your Soakworthy items safe during machine washing. Protect your lingerie, swimwear, active wear, scarves, sports bras, baby socks, knitwear, and embellished garments.
Made from 100% RPET, post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. Each Eco Wash Bag diverts 8+ plastic bottles from oceans and landfills.
From the designer - Andrea Mowry.
I had so much fun knitting The Shift cowl, that when the Spinsters told me they were coming out with a new worsted weight yarn, Dream State, I knew I had to make a Shift Shawl! This super fun shawl has an even larger canvas for color play! This pattern includes a recipe, to make it all your own, or row by row directions for those who want to play it safe!
This sweet little sweater knits up quickly from the top down. The combination of mohair lace and single-ply merino creates a fabric that is floaty, soft and sensual. With a high-low hemline and two length options, what’s not to love?
We now stock Biches & Buches Le Petit Lambswool and Le Petit Silk & Mohair which would be perfect for the sweater.
Dyed in the Wool
Andrea Mowry uses Spincycle Dyed in the Wool for her Shifty.
Because we dye the fiber before it's spun, colors meet and part ways in stunning, unique combinations; the overall effect is of a balanced, seamless whole.
