making a list

One of the people who will be taking my tiny world workshop is traveling from out of town. She asked me for recommendations for “can’t miss” crafting related places- for shopping and for inspiration- in the New England area. I have some places that I’ve been to and like, but I thought I would do a general shout out and then organize and make a page with all of your suggestions too. If you know of fun, inspiring, off-beat, esoteric or whatever places in NE, add them to the comments. Thanks!

I did a quick look through my postings that were in the resources category and came up with these-

Vintage and Antique Textiles in Sturbridge, MA. Unfortunately the Wright Factory Outlet has closed.

The Fiber Studio in Henniker, NH

The Dorr Mill Store in Newport, NH (Yikes, they are having a Columbus Day Weekend Sale!)

Camp Wool in Wells, Maine

Whispering Hill Farm in South Woodstock, CT

and here is a list with some suggestions. (I haven’t been to most of these places)

  1. I have to mention Western Avenue Studios in Lowell, MA!

    We have First Saturday Open Studios every month from 12-5 with over 150 working artists showing their work and their processes.

    Wed-Sunday every week we also have the Loading Dock Gallery, Mon-Fri Friends Fabric Art (a wonderful resource for textile artists) and Wed-Sun Lush Beads retail bead shop! Not to mention Tues-Sat Classic Elite yarns factory outlet shop upstairs :)
