About Us

Welcome to 3 Kittens Needle Arts! As a full-service needlework store, we carry an extensive variety of yarns, threads, knitting and crochet patterns, hand-painted needlepoint canvases, canvas embellishments, buttons, and other supplies to support your favorite needlepoint, knitting, crocheting, and weaving projects. In addition to a full schedule of classes, ranging from beginning to advanced courses, we also provide professional finishing services to put those special final touches on your needlepoint, knitting, and crocheting masterpieces. 

We believe that people craft because it gives them joy and balance in their busy lives. Our mission is to provide our St. Paul, MN, community with a friendly gathering place (we like to think of it as our "Happy Place") where needle and fiber artists of all styles and skill levels can learn new techniques, share ideas, and socialize with other folks who are passionate about handcrafting.  

Our talented, knowledgeable staff is dedicated to what we refer to as our NICE policy:

N - Represents our commitment to provide customers with the newest products and the newest project ideas.
I - Stands for inspiration through showcasing completed store samples that demonstrate the use of new techniques and materials.
C - Is for creativity, embodied in our ongoing quest for discovering new twists on old ideas and showing others how to customize their projects to make a unique piece that reflect's their individual style.
E - Represents our passion for educating our customers with expert product knowledge, one-on-one instruction, and ongoing support to ensure that they gain the skills and confidence to complete their projects with enjoyment and satisfaction!

After 40+ years of serving our St. Paul/Minneapolis, community, we're as passionate as ever about providing unparalleled customer service, as well as products and services that inspire creativity and promote success. Drop by our shop at 750 Main Street in Mendota Heights (we're located in The Village at Mendota Heights, just minutes from the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport in a suburb of St. Paul, Minnesota). We look forward to your visit!
