About FABRIC

 

A note from the FABRIC staff:

We want to bring you the most magical, legendary fiber arts tool library that ever existed. We want to help build an awesome community space where anyone regardless of background can make great art, or get started learning how.

FABRIC is fiscally sponsored by Common Cod Fiber Guild, a 501c3 non-profit. Thus, all donations to FABRIC via Common Cod Fiber Guild are tax deductible!

 

What are fiber arts?

A list of example fiber art disciplines includes, but is not limited to: sewing (which itself includes making costumes/cosplays, quilting, embroidering), knitting, crocheting, tatting, felting, spinning, weaving, and many, many others!

Fiber arts, like knitting, have been proven to improve quality of life and well-being (Riley, J., et al, 2013 http://goo.gl/WrQ8lz) and that is why FABRIC is dedicated to ensuring access to fiber arts for any person in the Boston area, regardless of background. We will have:

  • Many free classes open to all

  • Steep discounts for middle & high school students
  • Discounts available to students of any age
  • Grants available for people from low income families
  • Volunteer opportunities to work in exchange for free access

  • Open House nights offered quarterly
  • and much more!
