The Factory | This Week
“Change almost never fails because it’s too early. It almost always fails because it’s too late.” ― Seth Godin
Please note that The Factory Store + Café and Alabama Chanin offices will be closed on Monday, May 25th for Memorial Day.
Last week was packed with events at The Factory, so this week we are taking a moment to catch our breath…
Here is what we have going on, Monday, May 18 – Saturday, May 23 :
Join us for Third Mondays as we host our monthly sewing group at The Factory from 8:30 – 11:30. Spend your morning working on your latest project in the company of fellow sewers. Share inspiration, encouragement, and fellowship. Coffee and tea will be available for purchase from The Factory Café. Please bring your own fabric and sewing notions.
Monday – Friday, 9:00am – 5:00pm
Saturday, 10:00am – 4:00pm
Stop by any weekday at 2:00pm for a guided tour of our space, including The Factory, the Alabama Chanin production and design studio, and Building 14.
Stop in for lunch at The Factory Café this week with favorites like our Flatbread and Quiche of the Day, made with the freshest seasonal vegetables available.
Be sure to join us on Saturdays for Brunch, as we highlight products from local and regional farms and purveyors.
Also, don’t forget to take a look in our cooler – fully stocked with homemade ready-to-go items like pimento cheese and chocolate pots de crème.
Order a freshly baked whole cake for your next event or party. Our cakes are made from scratch, fresh from the oven. Please provide 24 hours’ notice when placing an order.
Custom catering is now available for all events and occasions. Work directly with our head chef, Zach Chanin, and the Alabama Chanin team to create a menu tailored to your needs.
Monday – Saturday, 11:00am – 2:00pm
*Lunch service begins at 11:00am but coffee and snacks are available all day.
The Factory is also open-to-the-public and is used by the community for small catered lunches, as host to local or traveling art exhibits, and performances. Current programming includes workshops, our Friends of the Cafe | Makeshift Dinner Series, and sewing groups. Below is a list of currently scheduled events at The Factory for 2015.
