The background to this event is tied to Falmouth’s recent history and the now non-existent store, The Fabric Corner. That shop, Falmouth’s only fabric store, held a big sale every Super Bowl Sunday, inviting women whose family members were glued to the football game on the TV, giving the family a chance to delight noisily in the game and the women a chance to plan sewing projects. After the store burned down, the Woods Hole Library picked up the idea of continuing the sale, selling donated fabric and yarn for extremely low prices, all on one day in the winter. To tie the event even closer to the Fabric Corner’s history, the Library always holds the sale on Super Bowl Sunday, continuing the tradition of providing an escape from the roaring TV. People have always flocked in, resupplying for winter sewing and knitting projects.
