If you can drive, the Classic Elite hub mills store in Lowell is a great deal.  They have Classic Elite yarns (plus some other brands) for cheap.  Like $1 a skein cheap for some of the samples.

Petite_Renoncule: I went to "A Good Yarn" in Brookline a few weeks back and it's amazing. Typical yarn store prices though ($$). Have fun!

A Good Yarn is FABULOUS!!! I pass it every time I go to my internship in Brookline, right off the Brookline Village stop on the Green Line, D Train. I have a hard time not going in, but they are a little pricey. A good visit, none the less... and Brookline Village is a great place to go too. Smiley

I don't know of any good fabric stores though. There is always Winsor Button for notions and such. I'm going to have to check out all of these fabric stores in Cambridge!!

There is a small fabric store, Fabric Corner, on Mass Ave in Arlington Center, a little south of the Stop & Shop and a little north of the main shopping area - it mostly has quilting fabrics, but also some home dec, interfacings, trims, and a small selection of fashion fabrics. Any bus that goes to Arlington Center will make it to within a few blocks of the store.


Fabric Corner is expensive!  I went there to get fabric for my mom's birthday gift & spent waaaay more than I wanted.  Their stuff starts at $8.49/yd.  Many of their quilt-y prints are old lady-ish.  That's the downside to quilt-oriented stores.  They think that we're all boring I guess.  (horrors! LOL  Tongue



I know this is an old post but I wanted to update for the record Smiley
While it may be expensive, its no more expensive than online for certain prints. I thikn you can sign up for online coupons & discounts.

It's also not old lady-ish anymore if it used to be. They had a ton of cute prints, lots of Amy Butler, Freespirit & Alexander Henry when I was in there a month ago.

I second Winmill--- it's cheap, the employees are friendly and knowledgeable, and its T-accessible.

Winsor Button is also very nice. But their yarn, especially the specialty yarn, can be very expensive.

We have lots of samples and remnants at the recycle center in Dorchester.
Fun to pick through. sizes from 2" to several yards, and also stuff on rolls and bolts of surplus fabrics.

Just to let everyone know I was just at windmill fabrics and they have a huge selection of Patterns on sale for $1. A lot of basic simplicity, and such but also some cute halloween  and historical costumes.
