The Baltimore Guide recently spoke with Allison Fomich, co-owner of Baltimore Threadquarters, a new fiber arts store and craft space slated to open in the Botteon Building, 518 S. Conkling St., on March 1.

What was the inspiration for Baltimore Threadquarters?
We—co-owner, sculptor Marlo Jacobson and I—both live in Highlandtown with our families. Our children both attend Patterson Park Public Charter School. We are both artists (Fomich is a jewelry designer) and struck up a friendship. We talked about how we wished there was a craft and artists’ supply store nearby, and we didn’t have to drive to the county. One day we decided, “Hey, let’s do this. Let’s open the store.”

Why did you choose Highlandtown, and not a storefront closer to MICA or Station North, or another more stereotypical “artists’ community”?
Highlandtown is an Arts and Entertainment district and it’s our neighborhood. A lot of working artists live in Highlandtown or near Patterson Park. They buy affordable homes, make studio space and raise their families here. Butchers Hill has a number of fiber artists and jewelry makers, yet there are no craft supply stores nearby. So there was a need, and Highlandtown Main Street helped us find a great space in the Botteon Building and great landlord.

How would you characterize Threadquarters: a supply store, art gallery, boutique, community art space, learning space?
It’s all of those things. We’re a retail store selling new, vintage, and eclectic fiber arts supplies. Our storefront windows will have monthly displays of crafters’ and artists’ work for sale. We’ll also feature monthly trunk shows. (The first trunk show features Anime Hat Mania).

What types of craft supplies will Threadquarters sell?
Supplies for fiber artists: needles, yarns, threads, locally made goods, vintage fiber arts, and spinning tools. We strive to sell everything at affordable prices.

Will artists/crafters be able to consign their work at Thread-quarters?
Yes, we’ll have a limited number of consignors.

What kinds of classes and workshops will you offer?
Adult classes in knitting, sewing, crocheting, felting. A wide range of fiber arts for all ages and skill levels. We’re open to ideas. We have a hand stitching class for kids ages 10 and up.

(Baltimore Threadquarters’ inaugural workshop is for adults only—a happy hour craft-making workshop on March 3. See Threadquarters’ online calendar for details.).

Where can readers learn more about Threadquarters and its opening day events?
Our Web site is; we’re also on Facebook.
