The Silver Needle, an independently owned needlework shop specializing in counted cross stitch, has been in business since 1983.
We have 4,000 square feet of everything Cross Stitch! Tons of stitched models, lots of neat scissors, luscious fabrics and threads, and beautiful Vera Bradley totes and organizers. Silver Needle is a Vera Bradley Gold Retailer.
In 2011 we added the line of ladies apparel -- FLAX. It is a collection of organic linen clothing -- it just seemed perfect for us linen-loving stitchers!!! We are the ONLY FLAX retailer in all of Oklahoma!!!
The pics you see on these pages are some of the shop gals, our displays and some of our favorite customers, who were kind enough to let us include them in the pics!

From Antique Sampler charts to tiny ornament charts -- we have it all! We have literally thousands of stitched models in the shop -- covering the walls, tucked into corners, stuffed into the display cases, and unfortunately -- sometimes piled on top of each other on the tables because we're out of room for them all!
We're home to Secret Needle Night, a monthly kit full of specialty threads and fun embellishments that is mailed to you each month. Always stitched on larger count linen, exclusive designs, we follow seasonal and holiday themes... and even toss in a recipe for something yummy!
We have a comfy couch in our Vera Bradley area -- it has hosted many-a-napper over the years! There are cabinets and cabinets of beautiful totes, handbags, scarfs, e-covers for every electronic device you love, cross-stitch organizers, cosmetic bags, and great travel pieces. That little couch comes in handy for the ones you wear out while you're shopping for Vera Bradley!
The website is always *up* on the computer in the shop -- it is a terrific reference tool. It's tucked on the wall behind some of our lovely FLAX clothes -- do take a look at those! We carry sizes Petite through Generous One!
We're conveniently located only 2-1/2 miles off I-44 -- the old Historic Route 66. If you have a chance to stop -- we are 5 minutes from the Interstate. There are bookstores, sporting goods stores, car washes and Woodland Hill Mall as well as wonderful restaurants all around us.
Our parking lot is huge... but you can drive right up to our front doors and park 8 feet from those doors. We have room for buses and RVs too!!! We even have a customer rest room that is
stuffed with old shop models that we are selling!!! That always draws lots of fun comments.
There are 15-ish of us who work in the shop. You'll recognize names when you call on the phone, converse via e-mail, or come in the shop -- most of the gals have been here way over 5 years -- and a few of them over 15! We LOVE our shop and our customers -- whether walk-in or 'remote' -- and love showing you all the fun things we have!!!
