Darien, CT has been the home to The House of Needlepoint for over 20 years. The original owner, Emme, opened the shop above Good Goods in the 1980’s. In the late 1990’s, Darienite, Annie, purchased the business. Annie moved HON to street level, 839 Post Rd. next to BonBon Hair Studio. The House of Needlepoint soon became a very popular needlepoint store in CT with customers from around the Tri-state area. On any given day, stitchers can be found at the front table working on their projects and chatting with other needlepoint enthusiasts. HON is a very creative, cheerful and friendly place. As you can see on the stitch sampler banner on our Home Page, we call it our HAPPY Place.
In September 2007, Beth and Kim bought the House of Needlepoint from Annie. Both avid stitchers, Kim and Beth set out to build upon an already thriving business. Since then the shop has been remodeled, computerized and expanded to carry many more canvases and fibers. Classes have been added and trunk shows and/or sales incentives happen monthly. Custom design services have also grown to include several new artists in addition to our long time painter, who has worked for House of Needlepoint since its inception.
In May, 2012, the House of Needlepoint moved next door to a larger, more beautiful space. Our address is still 839 even though we moved next door. Now we are between Koko’s Cafe and Starbucks.
