We're a bricks-and-mortar shop located at 101 - 890 Crace Street, Nanaimo, BC, Canada.

At The Stitcher's Muse, we're all about YOU.

We love to help creative souls - or anyone with an interest in stitching - get the supplies they need to satisfy their inner stitcher.

From needles to floor stands, cotton to silk, Aida to linen, ornaments to BAPs (Big Ambitious Projects), glass to semi-precious beads and crystals, cross stitching to tatting and bobbin lace, we have what you're looking for - and if we don't have it, we'll do everything we can to get it.

Need other help? 
We're pretty good at almost all needlework types.  We'd love to help you get to the next level in your stitching, learn a new technique, finesse your current project or technique, and advise you on colours and supplies to make your stitching enjoyable and rewarding.

We're open 10am to 5pm Monday through Saturday. For holiday and other special hours, please check our Google listing.
