Event Details

  • Date:

The Woods Hole Public Library marks Super Bowl Sunday, February 3, with its Fourth Annual Fabric and Yarn Sale. The event will start at 10 AM and runs until 2 PM.

The roots of the sale go back to the Falmouth fabric store, Fabric Corner, which unfortunately burned down about four years ago. For years, they had held an annual super sale on Super Bowl Sunday which was flooded by sewers and knitters escaping their home TV’s and football broadcast. This idea of the Woods Hole Library taking on this sale on and furnishing it with donated fabric and yarns has met with a lot of enthusiasm. For the past three years there has been such a wonderful outpouring of fabric and fiber enthusiasm, from both donors and purchasers, that the sale is now officially “annual”.

There is still time for people with an oversupply of fabric or fiber and a will to clean out their storage areas to donate their surplus to this fund-raiser for the Library. They may bring in their offerings during Library hours, which include all late afternoons, except Sunday, till 5:30 PM. Volunteers will package, label and price the donations up until the day before the sale. The workers endeavor to make the prices for all fabric and yarns completely reasonable.

All are invited to come and join in what is sure to be a pleasurable day for fiber-o-philes. The prices at the sale will be extremely low, starting at $1 per yard and skein. After 2 PM on Sunday, customers may fill up a bag for just $10.

For donation drop-off, Library open hours are Monday 12-5:30 and 7-9 PM, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 3-5:30, Wednesday 10-5:30 and 7-9 PM, and Saturday 12-5:30 PM. If it is absolutely impossible for donors to bring their fiber in beforehand, they may still do so early Saturday afternoon, February 2, when the Library is open.
