Exclamation Point has proudly served Santa Clara County for nearly 40 years. Originally established in 1977, growth, popularity, and ownership changes necessitated several moves to different locations in Los Gatos and Saratoga, CA. Today, the store is located at 1055 Monroe Street in Santa Clara, where it continues to offer the needlearts community a wide variety of threads, canvases, cross stitch patterns, knitting supplies, and more.
Current owner, Melanie Vancil, has expanded the product inventory and store specialties to include embroidery, crochet, and tatting. Regular group meetings at Exclamation Point provide stitchers with fun opportunities to share needlework knowledge and socialize. Additionally, classes are offered in basic needlepoint, counted cross-stitch, knitting, crocheting, and tatting (eventually, Melanie hopes to start a needlework school, in conjunction with Exclamation Point, that will provide a wide variety of needlework classes for all who wish to learn).
No matter your stitching style or skill level, we’ve got the needlearts products and services you need to bring your creative ideas to life. Our devoted staff members specialize in personalized customer service, offering expert product knowledge, one-on-one customer care, and ongoing support to help you enjoy, and succeed at, your favorite needle crafting activities.
