Best of Boston: 2014 Best Do-It-Yourself Craft Space


The only bead store in Boston specializes in the rare, bright, and shiny variety, sourced from around the world by owner and self-styled ” personal bead shopper” Andrea Garr, who will happily hunt down that ultra-specific bauble you’ve seen in your mind (but nowhere else). There’s also a dizzying range of classes taught by local artists for novice and advanced crafters, including clay, Tunisian crocheting, bead-weaving, and metalwork, as well as introductory courses for kids.

For those artists who prefer yarn or beads as a medium, Bead + Fiber is perfect.

The biggest draw for this shop may not be the jewelry making supplies, accessories and yarn, though. It has a great array of art workshops that will teach amateurs how to use the materials or teach established artists new tricks.

A great night in Boston’s epicenter for artists, modern residences, creative businesses, and purveyors of fashion. The SoWa stroll’s finale was the vintage fashion show held in the SoWa Vintage Market. This fun fueled fashion show featured vintage clothing and accessories from the SoWa Vintage Market and the legendary Bobby From Boston. Our volunteer models were members of the concierge community and they brought the fun in high vintage style!
