Loraine Belcher is good at sharing. When Lorain's Stitch 'n' Crafts first opened back in 1989, she was sharing a storefront space with her husband. There, she shared her skills and extensive knowledge with any curious clients, and shared her good taste through a well-curated selection of products. Today, 26 years and four moves later, she occupies her own 1,800 square-foot space with a huge inventory of books, materials, and sewing machines. The shop also has ample space for students to take small group sewing and quilting classes during the day and ghosts to try on colorful remnants after-hours.
