From Allston?

I found a few ways: one is take the green line to Lechmere.
Another way involves the 69 bus, which means I have to transfer from the 66.
Anybody know? I don't entirely trust mbta.com

I think taking the green line would be the most direct way. I didn't realize how close the store is to the train until I did it - it's a pretty short walk (and totally worth it!)

Thanks! I actually tested out both ways yesterday. The thing with the bus is that you have to wait 20 minutes (just about!) for it to come, so for me, Lechmere is the way to go. What an amazing store!

Does anyone have the address/more specific directions from the T?  I'm hoping to get there soon, but can't seem to find anything with this info (why doesn't every store have a website to make my life easier?!?).
Also- anyone know their weekend hours?

When you exit the Lechmere stop, you will be on Cambridge street, I believe.  You want to walk west down Cambridge street (away from the Cambridgeside Galleria).  Sew Low is at 473 Cambridge St. 

I don't know their weekend hours, but I do know I have been there on the weekend.

Unless it has changed in the past 12 months, the exit for the T is on the side with the bus station on McGrath - you will need to hunt around for the "tunnel" under the T rail to get over to the Cambridge St/Galleria side. Or you can walk down McGrath (the big divided road) away from downtown Boston - you will go past a Dunkin Donuts at 3rd st, then down a hill past a car wash. At the bottom of the hill is a shopping center on your left with a Shaws and a park/field on the other side of the parking lot. If you head over across the field to Gore St, and then look for the numbered side streets - I think it is around 6th or 7th street - take the numbered street one block over to Cambridge Street and you will pop out right near Sew Lo. Also worth a visit is SewFisticated in the shopping center with the Shaws, it is only 2-3 blocks from SewLo.

Sew Fisticated does has a webpage.
