Here' another option. I read this in another thread in this forum......Boston/Cambridge Fabric Stores...

calicoon suggested Zimman's in Lynn. You can take the Newburyport/Rockford Line Commuter Rail out of North Station, to Lynn. 2/10ths of a mile from the Lynn Station is Zimman's. calicoon says this about Zimman's:
"I know it isn't in Boston or Cambridge, but Lynn is accessible by bus, and by rail (?) There is a great old fabric store there....um...Zinma n's? that my friend and I used to go to when we lived there. I bought some beautiful blue marbled-look cotton for curtains, so it had to have been cheap"

Zimman's Inc
80 Market St
Lynn, MA 01901

(781) 598-9432



To see all the suggstions for fabric stores in Cambridge that are accessible by T, check out the entire thread:

Hope this helps

I just discovered several fabric stores in Boston, as listed on maps.google.com. go there and type in Boston. This brings up a map of Boston. Zoom in. Click on any blue M that designates a T stop. This pops up a window where you can click on the words "search nearby". type fabric in the search box.

Winmill Fabrics is over in the Chinatown area at 111 Chauncy St.
Fabric Place is at 399 Boyloston.
Fabric Corner is at 253 Newbury St.

Hope this helps.

Otherwise, you're going to have to take the T and a cab, or resort to online ordering.

WOW!!! What a great job!!!!! Beautiful! And great idea, too, to bury the little necklace under the tag so you know where it is!

That is SO awesome!!!!! GREAT work!!!!! I have a thing for creating "faux" burgers.... I've crocheted a set of coasters that stacked up inside a crocheted bun, and I've sewn some, too. I've thought about making a cake, but have never attempted it. Yours is absolutely fabulous!!

The only advice I can give you is that it will require the T AND taking a cab. 2 summers ago I lived in Cambridge. From Cambridge, it's a fairly short cab ride to either Michael's, ACMoore, or JoAnn's.

I currently live in Stoughton, and there's both Michael's an ACMoore within very close driving distance, and JoAnn's not much further. The commuter rail comes directly into Stoughton, about 2 blocks from where I live.....but alas there's no trains over the weekend. I was thinking you could come here and I will gladly take you to any or all 3 stores, and back to the Stoughton train station.

Trains do run all weekend to Canton and Sharon, though, and they are a short drive from my house.

hmmmmmm, is there a way to contact me directly through craftster??

I'll check back for your reply....maybe we can work something out...I would love to help you and understand the craft store blus in Boston proper.

Let's figure out how I can help you.....
