Button Box

September 3rd, 2009 · 1 Comment

As Laraine pointed out on my “About” page, it’s been a whole month and a half in between posts. I feel bad because I’d love to update weekly, which doesn’t sound like a lot but between two other blogs and all summer I was looking for a full-time job, which is a full-time job in it self, I just let it slag, so sorry and I really hope to keep up on this more in the future.
Not to make it worse but this post is technically not metrowest since it’s in Wellesley – BUT- it’s right on the Natick line on Route 9. I’m posting about it because since the very sad closing of Fabric Place in Framingham, we sewers have the limited local option of the Joann Fabric chain. Which is okay but it’s nice to get a different variety of fabric selection and support a local business.
I found the Button Box, which is at 5 Overbrook Drive in Wellesley but like I said it’s basically on Rt. 9 .
This is a great little shop with lots of quilting fabric, notions, buttons, books etc..:

The staff is very helpful and in the classroom in back you can see the quilts people are working on.
This is a great find for anyone looking for a different option than Joann’s. Check out their website for more info: If anyone else knows of a another local fabric store please feel free to share.

    The Button Box is amazing! The staff is so friendly and helpful, and will even help you to pick out nicely matching fabrics, if you’d like. I adore the shop. Everyone that sews should check them out!
