THE FACTORY | THIS WEEK 5.5.2014 – 5.9.2014


“There are still traditions that bring communities and families together instead of propelling them apart. And there are people out there pumping new life into old traditions and inventing new ones, people for whom food is an all-American reason to slow down and pursue some happiness.”

– Alice Waters, from the foreword of Hidden Kitchens

Here is what we have going on at The Factory Store + Café this week, Monday, May 5 – Friday, May 9:

Come and browse our selection of gifts for Mom (featured in-store and online). Treat the mothers in your life (or yourself) to something special.

Also, don’t forget about First Mondays at The Factory. Come sit, sew, and enjoy the company of fellow stitchers.
