Dear fellow fiber lovers,
It is with deep sadness that we must report that FABRIC's West Newton location is closing permanently. We have found that FABRIC can no longer sustain a brick & mortar location. We do, however, have some GOOD news:
FABRIC will continue to exist as an online presence and via pop-up events, like our annual Free Dye Day. Future FABRIC events will still be held in the Greater Boston area, with exact dates and locations to be determined. Going forward, the FABRIC newsletter will be sent out only a few times a year ahead of these large events, and we encourage you to stay subscribed if you have an interest in attending.
Effective immediately, memberships are no longer available for sale. Current members will have access to FABRIC through the last day, December 8th. If you do not have a membership but would like to come and use FABRIC's equipment during open hours between now and the last day, there will be a $5 daily charge. We will still have our sewing machines, sergers, knitting machines, dye equipment, table looms, etc, available through the 8th.
December 14th, 15th, 21st, and 22nd, FABRIC will be open for a yard sale to sell off the remainder of the supplies and equipment.
Common Cod Fiber Guild has been our generous fiscal sponsor for the last three years, gave FABRIC a loan for capital expenses, and one of their board members donated a 3D printer. This is why profit raised via the yard sales and some other sources will be donated to them.
Thank you very much to everyone for their love and support. We hope to see many of you come by our location before it closes and at our fun community events next year.
-The FABRIC Board
