Established in 1989, Golden Needle began as a machine embroidery shop in Port Charlotte, Florida. The shop's second owners expanded the shop and moved it to the Tamiami Trail location in the early 1990's. Since that time, the GN has served as SW Florida's cross stitch and needle art source. In 2015, new owners moved things around and added some new facets to the shop with an online presence.*PIC 1 2021 marked a major change for the shop. We split the shop into two separate entities and locations. The machine embroidery remained in Florida with a fourth (new) owner. However, that location has since closed completely. The needle art portion of the shop hit the road resettled in San Marcos, Texas with the third owner.*PIC 2 In the summer of 2023 the shop will be moving to New Braunfels (foundation issues).*work in progress PIC 3 below! Hopefully that's all clear as mud!
