“Seems like only yesterday I opened the original Fiber Arts Studio in my home on Delsea Drive, Cape May Court House,” says owner Jana. “That was March 1, 1987. Four moves and 16 or so years later, we landed in Cape May amid sunshine, the beach, Victorian architecture and a myriad of great restaurants.”
