Needlepoint Girls Weekend in Nantucket

Penny Linn Designs and Greystone Needlepoint are excited to welcome you to a girl's weekend in Nantucket! We were itching to get away, and what better place than our favorite place? So pack your bags and all your project and meet us in ACK!


The weekend is free to join, and you can participate as little or as much as you want. Each day we’ll have different meet-ups or meals planned, and we’d love to have you join us for whatever you can make! Below is our schedule and top recommendations for things to do on the island when we’re not together.

We just ask that you fill out this form HERE to reserve your spot.

We’ll be collecting emails to be able to communicate with everyone coming for the week to give current updates, weather changes, and up-to-date information.


Krista will arrive Wednesday morning and likely spend the morning/afternoon downtown shopping and eating. If you get in early, join us to explore the town. Lunch/Dinner drinks will be downtown TBD based on who is around and in town!


Head out to Sconset in the morning/afternoon to stitch at the beach. Take the Wave (Sconset via Old South Road route) bus to the last stop. You can also take an Uber/Taxi/Car out, but the Wave will cost you $3 (bring cash!) and couldn’t be easier. Pickup is at the bus terminal on Washington Street. Once you reach Sconset, grab snacks/breakfast at the market and walk down the street to the beach. Bring something to sit on, your favorite project, and some SPF!

After a day at the beach, join us back in town for stitch night at Erica Wilson from 6-7:30pm! Erica Wilson is the local needlepoint store on the island and one of our favorite stops in town. Make sure to RSVP to EW directly to come. We will see you there!

Dinner will be on your own as there are many great spots downtown to grab a bite. After you’re done eating, meet us for Karaoke at the Rose and Crown! We will sing the night away.


Spend the morning recovering or grabbing breakfast. In the afternoon, we’ll get sandwiches at Something Natural and then head to Steps Beach to eat, stitch, and hang out for lunch. If you’re beached out (or want to stop by before lunch), head to Centre Point for The Red Thread Atelier Needlepoint Event from 10-1 PM!

We’ll call the beach day a little early so we have time to head out to Millies for dinner. We’ll meet in front of the Whaling Museum at 4 pm to take the Wave (bring $3 cash) out to Madaket. We’ll hang out at the beach there and eat dinner at Millie's, so come hungry and bring a sweater in case it gets chilly.


Meet us at Cisco at 11 am Saturday morning for a day at the brewery. You can take an Uber, bike, or take their shuttle (starting at noon) from the Visitors Center in town for free (always nice to tip them, so bring cash!). The brewery offers wine, hard liquor, beer, and various food trucks. Bring a project, an appetite, and some comfy shoes!

Dinner is on your own again but meet us at the Gazebo (on the wharf) for drinks after dinner and a night out!
