The Factory | This Week
“Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life, because you become what you believe.” – Oprah Winfrey
We’d like to thank everyone who shopped with us over the weekend during our online sale, and those who visited us at The Factory. We appreciate your support of the work we are doing—making beautiful goods and food right here in our community and in sustainable ways.
Our online Holiday Sample Sale starts today with 30% savings on select garments and special home goods. Savings will increase on select items each day this week. Items sold in our Sample Sale are first come, first served.
We continue to receive shipments of our backordered fabric. Shop all of the colors (including restocked colors) here or in-store.
As the holidays approach, find the perfect gifts in store and in our online Holiday Shop—and visit our Handmade Holiday Shop for gift inspiration for the makers in your life.
Join us for First Mondays at The Factory on December 5th from 8:30am to 11:30am. Bring your own sewing project and notions, and spend some time with your fellow sewers. Afterwards, stay and have lunch in our Factory Café.
Every weekday The Factory offers lunch from our Daily Menu. We offer soups, sandwiches, salad, quiche, fresh seasonal vegetables, cookies, tea, and a selection of wine and beer. Our menu features organic ingredients that are sourced from local farms and purveyors and changes with the seasons. After lunch, join us for a tour of The Factory at 2:00pm. On the tour, you will be able to see our production areas and learn about our history and sustainable manufacturing practices.
Every Saturday from 10:00am to 2:00m join us for Brunch at The Factory. We offer the always popular Farm Breakfast which includes homemade biscuits and gravy, bacon, and scrambled eggs, as well as quiche, French Toast, yogurt with house-made granola, and weekly specials like The Factory Benedict. Complete your meal with a mimosa or a cup of The Factory Blend hot coffee. We proudly use locally-grown, organic ingredients. Our store will also be open from 10:00am – 3:00pm, so stop by after your meal and shop our kitchen wares, artisan-made Collection garments, and machine-sewn clothing and home goods.
Our head chef Zach and The Factory Café team offer catering services and are planning a special menu for Holiday Pickup. We’ll do the work; you enjoy. We also host holiday luncheons at The Factory or can cater off-site events. Call +1.256.701.8667 and Anne Ryan will be happy to help—or fill out our online catering form located here.
