We opened Needlepoint in 2000 to provide the town with its own haberdashery as well as providing a local mending service.
The shop has a wide range of haberdashery goods: from wools to ribbons; zips to scissors. Our stock is always changing and if we don’t have it, just ask – we’ll see if we can source it for you.
I first learnt my trade sitting on my Granny’s knee at six years old! And when old enough, went on to do my apprenticeship at the highly respected Laidlaws Park in Galashiels.
I am delighted to make alterations on any piece of clothing: from ball dresses to a pair of trousers! If you’d like a dress made then get in touch, I’m happy to give advice and the chances are I’ll have done it before! I even helped out with the Right Angle Theatre Company for 20 years producing all their costumes.
If you’d like to discuss anything just pop in and see me in the shop, I’d love to see you.
