About Us

Mission Statement

Beehive NeedleArts provides all of your needlework needs and superior customer service. We pledge to always sell our customers the highest quality of clean and new products. The Beehive NeedleArts also provides a social atmosphere for concepts, advice, and wisdom to be shared among people with similar interests in the needlepoint arts.

About the Bees

Beehive NeedleArts was founded in 2007 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  The store is owned and operated by a Mother and three of her daughters.  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; a 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 needle pointers of all abilities.

Stitch Groups

If you have an established stitch group or a special stitching event and would like to utilize our classroom space for your group, please contact us!  If you are interested in a specific group class level or needlepoint topic, please e.mail us and we will do our best to accommodate your request.


We offer a variety of stitching classes for different abilities.  All classes are listed on our Calendar  section of our website.  The registration for each class will be outlined with each class description. We encourage you to sign up as soon as possible because space is limited and materials may need to be ordered. Please call to sign up for classes: 412-343-4630.
