“At the Dream Factory Luncheon there was good networking with a great speaker with good audience participation.”
Ann Jewell, Simply Organized



The Framingham chapter was the first chapter. It was started in October 2004 after Nancy Cantor, Founder and CDO of the Framingham Dream Factory Community, received the name “Dream Factory” in a dream. After spending time right afterwards in Findhorn, Scotland and the rainforests of Ecuador, Nancy was impressed with the communal nature of both places, and the Dream Factory became a Community.

Framingham/MetroWest holds their events in Framingham, at Water View Terrace, 1400 Worcester Rd, 1st Floor Community Room, on the third Thursday of the month.

Our members are a mix of solo-entrepreneurs, women in transition, and women with jobs. Everyone is looking to connect and have support in creating their dreams. “The Dream Factory Community has become far more than I ever imagined it could be. It has become a great place where members become known and truly cared for and fulfilled.” —Nancy Cantor
