We are so excited to announce that we are MOVING to a more spacious (and historic!) space just around the corner. Our estimated move date is mid-September. Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter so you won't miss an update! Until then, you can still find us at our original location at 24 High Street, Fairport, NY.
We will be located at 23 N. Main St. in Fairport, NY tucked between the railroad tracks and the eponymous Lift Bridge! We are in a fantastic early 1900s Rochester, Syracuse & Eastern Electric Trolley Station. It is SO spacious and we are busy dreaming of all the possibilities and are working our butts off to make them a reality!
We have plans for gorgeous new spaces to expand our in-store shopping experience, create a dedicated Sit & Stich/classroom space, as well as have more space for us behind the scenes. Plus, we are even closer to so many local businesses we already know and love. Not to mention we will have a front row seat during Canal Days!
The plaque outside our new home reads:
The Fairport Station
The Rochester, Syracuse, and Eastern Railroad was a double track electric interurban trolley, the finest in New York State. It operated from 1906 to 1931 with 99 stops between Rochester and Syracuse. This passenger/freight station opened in 1911 at a cost of $6,000. It was one of 8 such structures and has had many uses over the years. It is now privately owned.
Almost all of the former track bed in Perinton has become a hiking and biking path maintained by the Town of Perinton.
