In 2015 I retired from my job as an Interior Designer and took up needlepoint to fill the creative void. Like many stitchers, I began to acquire quite a few needle minders, but found I was often disappointed with both the designs and the functionality of what was available on the market. The magnets were wimpy and the shapes were not effective in actually holding the needle. So, in the fall of 2019, I started KIRKLAND DESIGN STUDIO to make needle minders that are both functional and fun. They are the perfect sized round, flat-topped minders that are affordable and extremely powerful. As a matter of fact, they will hold both a needle AND a small pair of scissors. We specialize in funny, snarky sayings that stitchers love, but also enjoy doing custom designs. We can do any shop logo, class theme, retreat name, local team, etc. Even if all you have is a name or an idea, we will design something that you are sure to love and there are absolutely NO MINIMUMS! We are also the official provider of Stitch Club needle minders for all 114 cities! And if that isn't enough, we offer a very popular Needle Minder of the Month Club, Trunk Shows, and Pop-Up Shops, too!
