Iron Horse opened September 8, 1999 in a newly renovated room in the historical barn on the family property in Sherborn. In the fall of 2009 Iron Horse relocated to 3 Pond Street in beautiful downtown Natick, Massachusetts. We blossomed there as a yarn, fiber and gift shop building our community with knitting, crocheting, hand spinning yarn, and weaving for all.
On July, 21, 2019, a devastating 9-alarm fire destroyed our block of businesses. Nothing was left after 14 hours of burning but charred wood and ashes. While our store is gone, our spirit is bursting with the love and support from our customers, friends, family, neighbors, and town.In Janaury 2020, the shop was opened back Sherborn. A new beginning and rebirth.
Classes have resumed in our modern room in our beautiful historical 1890’s barn in Sherborn, MA. Just two miles from our location in Natick. We have come back to our humble beginning where it all started 21 years ago. There is free parking, great lighting, good company with limited yarn and supplies for your projects,

Since January 13 this year when the doors opened up in Sherborn, gift certificates that had been purchased and issued from Natick have been honored. Several of you have questioned and they have been gladly accepted.
_PLEASE rummage through your drawers, knitting bags, closets and old handbags to find these gift certificates that have _not expired_ and come shop! They may be used for any in-stock merchandise only or if you have pre-ordered a Lopi blanket they will be honored towards them. Several of you have taken advantaged of this great offer and I am thrilled!
**As of November 6, 2020, these gift certificates will no longer be valid in the shop in Sherborn.** When the building was destroyed July 21, 2019, cash, paperwork and even computer data was lost. Yes, even the back up to the computer was lost. There are no records to be had.
Every thing in every way started fresh and at -0- when the shop reopened in Sherborn except for the wonderful relationships that we had all formed.
The difficult decision has been made since restarting to not offer gift certificates going forward. The Wish List Box will return! At any time during the year you may come in and fill out a wish list card so family and friends may call or stop in to purchase exactly want you would like. The WISH LIST BOX will be in the shop as of October 1.
