Coastal Sewing Machines set sail nearly two decades ago, hopping between various locations on the Connecticut coast as it lured schools of quilters and seamstresses. Within the shop, needle aficionados guide guests through an inventory of cloth that stretches more than 10,000 yards, providing options for any project and the means of making a football stadium a nice dress shirt. Their selection of high-end sewing machines, embroidery machines, and sergers from Viking, Pfaff, and Baby Lock grants supreme stitching power to complement their supply of notions and bring customer creations to life. Coastal's textile techs also expand the sewing community through an ever-changing schedule of classes. Students can learn basics while making useful items such as luggage tags embroidered with their name. The shop also slings classes on more advanced topics, from designing tote bags to operating a serger.

Past window displays where paintings sidle up next to jewelry and pottery, patrons step into Waves of Creation's artistic haven. Lining the walls and shelves, wood pieces, photographs, and handmade candles represent the efforts of more than 50 Rhode artists and artisans. Artists also gather together under the roof, using Waves of Creation's boutique storefront as a base for artistic tutelage. They guide students toward expressive realization in mediums such as jewelry, teaching the know-how to wire-wrap a bird's nest necklace or a finger-braided bracelet. Paint-your-own pottery sessions vent built-up artistic aspirations as participants decorate serving platters with flowers or transform mugs into trophies for the World's Best Coffee-Drinking Cat, whereas candle-making classes allow pupils to create custom scents and styles.

Farming is a family tradition for the Confredas, and has been since 1922. For nearly a century, they've tended a 400-acre plot of land in Cranston and Warwick, first cultivating vegetables, then expanding over the years to incorporate 160 varieties of annuals and 75 varieties of hanging baskets. In 1997, third-generation owner Vinny Confreda opened Confreda Greenhouses & Farms to the public, hoping to give New Englanders easy access to fresh, local produce and plants, and give them an opportunity to see what it's like to live and work on a real country farm.

Besides selling heirloom vegetables and lush flowers, Confreda farms is also host to a wide range of fun activities and events throughout the year. An annual fall festival treats visitors to free hayrides, a pumpkin patch, and an all-ages corn maze, as well as spooky thrills after dark, when the farm becomes overrun with werewolves, zombies, and the most terrifying creatures of all: amateur actors.
