Moving FRIENDS Down the Block

Dear FAB friends and customers, I am excited to tell you that my husband and I are moving FAB into a beautiful old building just 3 blocks away, on the corner of 8th and Market. The new location will allow us to have a little more space for our shop, a real classroom and more elbow room for Stephanie, our longarm quilter. Our last day of business at 433 Market will be November 17. Then, we will be closed and working really hard to get the new place ready for you. We plan to reopen in our new location on December 1.

Thank you for making our first two years in business a success!  Carol


We aren't moving EVERYTHING!  Some of our fabric will not be going to the new store, so now is the time to build your stash with some quality fabric at a great savings.

Beginning Monday, October 17, selected fabric is 40% off. We will keep our sale table full until we move, so as it dwindles down, more bolts will be filling it back up again. 

Fall and Halloween fabric is 30% off

Also, there will be a fabulous in-store special on all Accuquilt products

Closed Memorial Day and July 4

Friends Around the Block will be observing two upcoming holidays: Memorial Day and the Fourth of July. We will be closed Monday, May 25 and Saturday, July 4.
