I've heard that phrase before, but it's not a fabric. Space is just Space. Time is our perception of moments but it's thought of as a type of Spacial Dimension just like the 3 Space Dimensions.
People say 3D Space is a location which can be plotted in x,y,z terms. X=horizontal, y=vertical, z=forward/backward and Time they usually call the 4th Dimension. But Time is always changing so technically you have to include it to be accurate in plotting a point. We usually disregard Time and just plot a point somewhere. But in reality since Time is always changing and everything is always moving where you plot a point one moment will be different the next moment Relative to everything else.
So they put the two together to make Space/Time. Which is X,Y,Z,T.

How does time change the location? It's the x, y and z that change, time is irrelevant in plotting coordinates. When time changes the coordinates change as u stated but you don't factor in time, you account for all known pulling/pushing forces to amend the coordinates.
Time is a other dimension and a concept that doesn't relate to celestial positions, unless you account the mass of the object as been time related
So how did the universe manage to evolve for 13 billion years before humans showed up? Time measured by accurate clocks is not constant in different reference frames, that much is true, but the human perception of time is a totally different subject than the actual passage of time measured by precise clocks which aren't affected by human consciousness.

1. The 4th dimension (time) is completely a product of human consciousness and is a non constant in the universe.
