Nancy, next time I go up to visit my family, ge me a list of the quilt and yarn shops, if you would please? I use our visits as shopping trips also.

Are you looking for a particular part of Massachusetts? Here's my list, I haven't been to all of them, but I've provided commentary where available:

Windsor Button
35 Temple Pl
Boston, MA 02111-1305
Phone: (617) 482-4969
Large selection for babies, novelty yarns, and wools, less selection with the hand dyed and hand spun products. Knowledgeable & friendly staff (See Sue or Linda!), regular & reasonably priced classes, and reasonable prices.

A Good Yarn Incorporated
4 Station St
Brookline, MA 02445-7938
Phone: (617) 731-4900
Cozy little store with a limited selection (primarily wool, cotton, and silk). Store arranged by fiber and then by weight. Prices on the high side of average.

Woolcott & Co
61 JFK St
Cambridge, MA 02138-4931
Phone: (617) 547-2837
Prices on the higher end, very skilled and knowledgeable staff, very small store that's jammed with inventory, not arranged by any particular method that I can discern. Great selection of hand/kettle dyed yarns, and hand spun wools. Large (but not exaughstive) collection of novelty yarn. They also have a consistent schedule of classes for more advanced techniques (like knitting two socks at once on one set of needles!)
