Learn about Pinecones & Needles  

Pinecones and Needles is a Waldorf inspired one-of-a-kind boutique located between Waverly Square and Cushing Square, Belmont, MA where we strive to create an environment of reverence for Mother Nature and our community while creating beautiful crafts and selling traditional and European toys and gifts made of natural and eco-friendly materials.  

Anne Gates, the owner, founded Pinecones & Needles because she wanted to provide a space where families gather together, reconnect, explore a way of living closer to nature, and rediscover a deep respect for life cycles.  Pinecones & Needles offers crafting classes and drop in crafts for children and adults alike.  Our toy store offers a wide selection of eco-friendly Waldorf inspired toys for all ages as well as a large selection of European toys. So come by and meet Anne and her friendly and talented staff; we look forward to seeing you.  Sign up for classes, drop in to craft, buy a gift, and treat yourself.  Come chat, craft, and play.
