Stitch Boutique of Boston; Boston, Massachusetts

Recommended by Rebecca and Bizz Fretty

My daughter and I found this wonderful needlepoint shop when we visited Boston one fall break when we were on a history stroll along the Freedom Trail from Paul Revere’s house to Boston Common.  And Stitch Boutique was right in the middle of our walk!  What a terrific stop to stock up on several new projects.  They have a fabulous collection of New England patriotic (and Patriot’s Football) canvases that you will find hard to choose from.   I am in love with my lamb and the stunning basket that they provided as well as the finishing.   The owner, Kim Walton, and her staff are fabulous!  They helped us make great fiber selections that made our projects really pop!  A must stop when you visit Boston and they have a sister shop in Winchester as well!
