Scituate for Crafters

*Please call first for available times and location business hours.

Morning

  • Enjoy breakfast at Sam’s on the Harbor, the “go-to” restaurant for breakfast, lunch, and takeout, overlooking beautiful Scituate Harbor. Ample picture windows give you a great view of boaters and fishermen heading out to start their days, while you enjoy a delicious classic breakfast or one of Sam’s many specials like the California Croissant, BLT Benedict, even a Keto Omelette!

  • Head around the corner to the artist cooperative Expressions on Front Street, a venue to create and showcase the work of local artists and artisans. As an artist cooperative, each member is dedicated to supporting this mission through the contribution of their handcrafted products, their time running the shop, and the creative process with members at meetings.

  • Fridays and Saturdays, pay a visit to Silverstorm & Co. in the Mill Wharf Plaza. Silverstorm is an art gallery featuring artisan-made fine jewelry handcrafted from sterling silver and genuine sea glass as well as creations from other local artists. Their passion is not only in jewelry making but in giving other artists a place to showcase their talents.

  • Just down the street, head to Native and check out their offerings of pottery, jewelry, textiles, accessories, and artifacts from diverse tribes and cultures including the American Southwest, Mexico, India, Africa, Nepal, Thailand, South America, and New Guinea. Native goes on buying trips to the Southwest, Peru, Ecuador, and Guatemala, importing these handmade, often one-of-a-kind, items directly from these countries, working with co-ops and fair trade organizations.

Afternoon

  • Finish up in the Harbor by grabbing lunch at one of the many fine restaurants such as Salt Society, Galley, Mill Wharf, or Satuit Tavern just a short and scenic walk away.
  • For anyone into the fiber arts, North Scituate is a perfect destination for your afternoon with not one but two yarn shops! Park at the North Scituate Playground parking lot off of Henry Turner Bailey Road and check out Staci’s Stitches right on the corner. Staci’s boasts an inventory that rivals any big-box store with high quality yarn at a wide variety of prices. Staci’s carries brands that you just can’t find anywhere else like Knit Collage, Threadhead Knitting Co., and Hypnotic Yarns, and offers knitting and crocheting classes in the evenings and on the weekends. Staci’s even offers one-day needle felting classes that are the perfect opportunity to try your hand at a new craft!

  • From needles to buttons, Yarns in the Square will help you every stitch of the way! They boast the widest selection of buttons around and carry a wide variety of notions, needles, and everything to help get you started and finished on a project. Call ahead to check on class availability and times to get help with your project.

  • The Makery Sewing Studio, also in North Scituate, is the perfect place to create. They teach classes for both children (ages 7 and up) and adults, and offer a variety of events including Parent & Me Sewing, Project Workshops, Ladies Nights, Private Events, Birthday Parties, One on Ones, and more. The Makery often hosts visiting artists teaching other creative classes, too, so call ahead and see what’s in store!

Evening

  • For dinner, check out a historic classic like the Barker Tavern, sample new American fare at Oro, or head to the Rivershed if you happen to be a barbecue fan!

  • The Little House of Arts in Scituate Harbor boasts a wide variety of classes for kids and adults of all ages. Check out their offerings online or call ahead and book your own Ladies’ Night event, choosing from dozens of available options!

  • If you’ve ever wanted to try throwing pottery, make a call to Jeff Adams, owner of ANJL Ceramics at 617733-7579. He teaches eight-weeklong evening classes, rents out studio space, and offers shopping hours by appointment to see his fantastic creations.

  • If you’ve got time left, end your day by grabbing an ice cream at Nona’s Homemade in the Harbor or Dribbles in the Harbor and North Scituate. Enjoy the sunset views from Minot Beach or Old Scituate Light for  breathtaking scenes.
