Ready to do a little shopping in Old Town and support 30+ charities at the same time? Come out to Old Town on Saturday, May 18th and be part of the largest small business – charity collaboration in the DC Metro area. This year, fibre space™ is delighted to host a fundraiser for our partner Project Knitwell!
