    The FabMo list gets you newsletters dealing with distributions and general news. 


  1. There are email list options that will get you regular information about FabMo events, distributions, educators, and FabMo concept outside the Bay Area. FabMo has had increasing participation in various events from Earth Day to Maker Faire, county fairs, and, of course, our own FabMo Textile Art Boutique).  The Ninth Annual FabMo Textile Art Boutique was a popular success on October 29, 2017.



Making appointments

Managing the size of the crowd makes a huge difference to everyone’s experience while treasure hunting - enough for good networking and mutual interaction, not so many that it becomes a competitive “rummage sale”.  Our space is limited, so crowd size matters.  We maintain inventory and restock the tables regularly to insure that whenever folks arrive, they’ll still see fresh material that hasn’t been picked over. 

Strollers, walkers, etc. can be problematic during peak periods, so if they are essential for you, please pick the less crowded times.  It will make for a better experience for you and for others there.  You can see relative crowdedness by looking at the scheduling calendar.

  1. 1.Make your best appointment by clicking here.  The scheduling calendar will be available for your use about a week ahead of the Selection Event.  (If this is your first time using this scheduling program, you will need to “create new user account” before you can make the appointment.)  Include name/zipcode of any guests you plan to bring, as well as number and ages of kids. 

  2. 2.Watch for your confirmation email (instantly in your inbox). 

  3. 3.You will also receive a reminder email 24 hours before your appointment.
