Because We Are Certain Martha Washington Was A Quilter

We are about 6 weeks into our VIP sale, and we have been very appreciative of each and everyone of you who have come to support us as we are closing.

To celebrate the holiday weekend we have decided to go ahead and launch into our closing sale. As of Saturday, February 16 the entire store will be 50% off of all sales. (With the exception of consignment items)

We have just received new fabric, and would love for you to come see it!

Holiday Hours

The Salty Needle will be closed Monday, December 24th through Wednesday, December 26th. We will reopen on Thursday, the 27th. We hope that you all have a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends.

First VIP Sale Next Week!!

“Quilting on the porch” is Tuesday, December 4th at 10:00! We would love to see you there!

Our first VIP sale will be Thursday, December 6th. To qualify for a VIP card you must have a full punch card or make a purchase of $100 at regular price. All VIP customers will receive 40% off fabrics, notions, thread, books, kits and patterns on Thursday, December 6th!

Holiday hours and New VIP Card

Just a reminder that The Salty Needle will be closer on 22nd and 23rd in observance of Thanksgiving.

We are starting a new reward system for our frequent shoppers. We will honor all the full punch cards you have now with the usual $10 off but will not be punching reward cards from this point on. A full punch card will be replaced with a V.I.P. card. This will give you 10% off each purchase plus a special sale day each month just for you! If you don’t have a full punch card a purchase of $100 or more will earn you V.I.P. status.
