Rogers relocated to Newbury Street in Boston. Not wanting to have a long commute Christina left L. H. Rogers and joined Lorraine Roy on Maple Street in downtown Danvers. Christina was not only the in house seamestress for Lorraine Roy but she also worked in sales. Christina worked for Lorraine Roy for 18 years until she opened her own shop, Pins and Needles seven years ago in the same building where Lorraine Roy was once located. In December of 2014 Christina relocated Pins and Needles to the current location at 5 Elm Street in downtown Danvers.
