If you love fabrics, a day spent at textile rescue organization FabMo is a day you won’t soon forget. Check out their Special Sale this Saturday, April 27 beginning at 9AM sharp! Find more information about the event here.

FabMo is located in a light industrial area in Mountain View, just off of 101. When you see this sign, stop! You’ve arrived.
Arrive early and be prepared to wait a little while, but not to worry—there’s lots of fun stuff to look at while in line.
Smaller fabric swatches like these are often free! They make great patches and are very popular with quilters.
People have different reasons for coming to FabMo. Some are crafters, others professional artists or teachers.
Founders Jonathan and Hannah Cranch show us some of the treasures they’ve retrieved from the design district in San Francisco and elsewhere in the Bay Area. This dynamic duo started FabMo over 20 years ago, and they’re still going strong!
The textiles you’ll find at FabMo run the gamut—from gorgeous silk brocades and nubby linen drapery fabrics to durable synthetic blends suitable for upholstery. The inventory varies depending on what the local design showrooms happen to be discarding.
Hanna shows a tote bag one volunteer made out of some of the 8×8″ square swatches FabMo commonly gets.
FabMo also has wallpaper, tile and carpet samples—not to mention buttons and other notions. Make sure you reserve plenty of time to browse and imagine the possibilities!
