Ok, now that everyones invited to Come, Shop and Save I have to backup a bit since I think some customers aren't aware the Nimble Needle has moved! After 30 plus years in Moorestown the shop has moved to a nearby town of Haddonfield, NJ. The two past store locations have only been barely adequate in terms of a retail location and I knew in order to keep the business healthy and serve my customers better I had to find a larger place. While I looked to stay in Moorestown everyplace I found had a drawbacks so my search continued. It is purely by chance that I found 50 Tanner Street, Haddonfield NJ, and it has several advantages over other towns not to mention the space is just right for a small needlework shop. I have nearly twice the space, a prominent storefront presence providing plenty of natural light, no steps upon entering, ample off street parking, easy access from Philadelphia via Patco and more. Haddonfield is an exceptional town in terms of a walking historic town with thriving retail. The Partnership for Haddonfield sponsors monthly town wide events to support all the businesses. Most notably First Fridays and the Annual juried Craft Fair in July and yes Ribbon Cuttings for all new businesses. The support is enormous and I couldn't ask for a better community to be a part of. To set the record straight the only location for the shop is in Haddonfield, I did not buy out another business and I don't live in Haddonfield nor Moorestown. Sales on my internet store ( and my ebay store have continued to grow and I now have a whole online customer base from the United States, Australia, United Kingdom and the Netherlands. Once and a while I get a distant customer dropping in which is such nice experience for me and wish my other customers from afar could come and spend a day in the shop to get the full Nimble Needle culture! I am ever so grateful for my regulars from near and far that support my efforts and keep me learning too. Ok, no more talking lets just pick up a needle and get stitching!
