Kathryn and Mackenzie bonded over their love of spending time with friends, exploring Chicago, and all things Needlepoint. Third Coast Stitches was born out of pandemic stitching and a need for a local needlepoint shop in Chicago proper. Our name is a nod to Lake Michigan, and the California and Massachusetts coasts that we grew up on.We hope Third Coast Stitches will become your go-to needlepoint shop, whether that is to grab a skein of thread you ran out of or to stop by with a bottle of wine and stitch with us for a bit! We offer a wide variety of hand painted canvases, ranging from pillows to flask covers to pockets. Our canvases are handpicked by Mackenzie & Kathryn and supplied from needlepoint designers internationally. Our shop stocks beautiful and unique canvases, including a Chicago themed collection. We also offer a range of thread, needlepoint accessories, and paint by numbers.
In addition to in store shopping, TCS offers finishing services for leather goods, lucite trays & coasters, pillows and more. We also offer sip & stitch needlepoint classes, charity shopping events, and birthday parties!
