On March 1, 2013, Baltimore will have a new place to celebrate the evolving fiber arts and crafting community.
It will be called Baltimore Threadquarters located at The Botteon Building on 518 South Conkling Street.
UPDATE: Check out coverage of the Baltimore Threadquarters Grand Opening Party here!
The Highlandtown based business is owned by Allison Fomich, jewelry designer behind Tigerlilly and Marlo Jacobson, a non-profit maven and doll marker.
After months of planning, the ladies have created a dream retail shop with classroom space and a workroom where crafters and artists can come together. Baltimore Threadquarters will carry tools for knitting, crochet, spinning, felting and sewing.
“We see this as a place to buy yarn, closeout interior fabric, vintage supplies, handmade fiber friendly accessories that are sourced locally,” Fomich said. We will have a limited boutique picked notions and some basics on hand.”
Funds are needed to stock shelves with supplies, sewing machines, classrooom furniture, cutting table, work brenches, pay instructor for workshops, provide materials for workshops and lights for retail space/window displays.
