Owner Leigh Miller has always loved color. As a child, she had a special box
where she kept her colors so she could carry them with her wherever she went.
Leighs box has remained with her to this day, a vibrant reminder of her
fondness for colors. The Needle Bug store displays Leighs passion in
its collection of bright and beautiful threads throughout
The Needle Bug is a unique store in the world of fine needlework. Leigh maintains
an impressive variety of threads, beads, buttons and sequins to embellish your
canvas. And if you need a canvas, you will find it here. The Needle Bug also
has a wonderful selection of such needlepoint necessities as bags, lamps, stands,
magnets and laying tools, as well as an extensive collection of needlepoint books.
If you are able to discover something we do not have at the Needle Bug, we will
find it for you!
The Needle Bug is more than just a store it is a full service needlepoint
shop! Leigh makes sure that her stitchers have every opportunity to
stay current and improve their needlepoint skills and techniques by bringing in
teachers from across the country. Julia Snyder, Robin King, Carole Lake and many
more have visited the Bug to share their knowledge with our local family of
stitchers. Leigh also offers classes from fabulous local teachers in areas
ranging from beginning classes to advanced classes about stitching plaids
to build a stitch notebook.
Leigh also understands the value of fellowship that needlepoint can bring. As a
result, The Needle Bug fosters a friendly, relaxing atmosphere that fully engages

celebrate many life events. Leigh has seen her customers through cancer, deaths of
spouses and parents, and many other life crises, as well as through weddings,
graduations and the births of many grand children.
