Fabric Garden Event

OK there isn’t really a Fabric Garden event :). However, this coming Free Friday has created two options!

Carol’s interested in stopping by the American Textile History Museum in Lowell. You can learn about that here –

Lisa is interested in walking around the Garden in the Woods in Framingham. That can be read about here –

Both are wholly FREE on Friday.

If you’d like to meet up at either location please let us know!
