welcome to alewives fabrics!

a delightfully eclectic fabric store

As much as we love seeing customers in person at our shop, we have made the difficult decision to close our doors to the public and run Alewives Fabrics as a web-based store. Alewives Fabrics will still offer curbside pickup for local customers (just place your order online and wait for an email from us confirming your order has been filled, then come and pick up your items anytime between 10 and 4 Tuesday through Thursday).

What brought us to this decision? Operating on an internet-only basis not only keeps us safer, it gives us the flexibility to balance work and family during the age of Covid-19. And as much as we love sending those brown paper packages tied up with string out in the mail, we admit it will never be the same as seeing your smiling faces in person, but please do subscribe to our daily newsletter via the link at the bottom of this page! It's a little Alewives sent to your in-box every day (I keep it short and sweet and conversational, I promise) and it's almost as good as being in the shop in person.

I don't know what the future holds, but I do know that for now, this new way of life agrees with us. The website is busier than ever, and we are still here to fulfill your fabric needs, even if we look a little different.


Rhea and all of the ladies at Alewives
