From the moment you step inside this sewing, fabric and needlework shop, you’ll be itching to get your creative juices flowing. The welcoming, vibrant space is packed floor-to-ceiling with anything and everything you’d need to start your next project: Cubbies are stocked with colorful fabrics ($15–$54 per yard) and ribbon ($1–$5 per yard), walls are decked with embroidery floss (86¢–$5 each) and needlework canvases ($30–$150), and shelves display goodies that will appeal to novice and advanced crafters alike. Beginning seamstresses should grab Pins & Needles’ signature Start Stitching kits ($55), a canvas bag stocked with oodles of equipment including a seam ripper, scissors, tape measurer, pins, a pin cushion and needles. Aspiring needleworkers can pick up adorable animal embroidery patterns from Penguin & Fish ($8), Make Do & Mend quilting kits that include goods like fabric and batting ($140), and ridiculously hip Emily Peacock needlepoint kits featuring classic tattoo-style designs ($95). Fabric lovers will drool over the bolts of retro-looking material from Australian line Sprout ($44–$54 per yard). Need a little guidance? Sign up for workshops on sewing skirts ($300) and embroidery 101 ($95) or splurge for a private lesson ($90 per hour).
