Hi!  On September 11-13 I'm heading out to Boston to accompany a friend to the Boston Gift Show.  She's an exibitor and has to man the booth everyday from 9-6.   I on the otherhand will have the opportunity to peruse around the city.  So my question for all you Bostonions out there...

What's there to see?  Any fabulous shopping districts or fabric stores?  Where would a crafty gal hang out?

Please let me know what you know...it's my first trip where I'll be all by my lonesome so I'm both excited and spooked! 

Can't wait to start plannin',

If you have transportation, check out The Fabric Place in Woburn.  They have GREAT remnants!

Former Bostonian here.  You might want to check out Newbury St. which is on the green line.  The most convenient stop is Hynes Convention Center.  I don't know about crafty stores (I wish!) but I get the feeling that they're in the outskirts which can be a pain to get to if you don't have a car.  Another fun area is between Central Square and Harvard Square on the red line.  There are some thrift stores, record stores, etc.  Or at least there was.  There used to be some cool stores in Allston (also on the green line) near Harvard Ave. but those too may not be there.

Windsor Button (near Boston Common and Chinatown) has TONS of button and slightly overpriced yarn. I second the vote for Newbury street too!
