Selection Events

FabMo’s flagship 3-day Selection Events are held every month at our Mountain View location on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

This is where you’ll find thousands of exquisite designer samples: everything from textiles to tiles, trims, wallpapers, leather and carpets. All for you to see and feel and fall in love with!

Restocking goes on continuously, so you will find a good selection no matter when you come.

Three or four times a year we have a satellite Selection Event for our FabMo friends in Santa Cruz.

To find out when and where the next Selection Event happens, check out the Events Calendar.

Special Sales

If you’re in the market for yardage, this is the event for you. 

On one Saturday each month you’ll find an amazing variety of textiles for quilting, apparel, and home decorating. You’ll also find an ever-changing assortment of special items that we’ve been able to rescue - all for exceptionally attractive prices!

No wonder these one-day-only events are so popular!

Once a year we organize a one-day event where our talented artists and crafters sell everything from home décor to clothing, gifts, and accessories, all made with FabMo materials. This is a great opportunity to buy wonderful handmade products and support the creative folks who repurpose FabMo materials. Many of our volunteers are there as well. It’s a great way to meet the FabMo community, ask questions, and get inspired. The Boutique is held in late October each year, early enough to solve many holiday gift-giving dilemmas.

The 2019 Boutique is scheduled for Saturday, October 26 from 10AM to 4PM at the First Congregational Church, 1985 Louis Road, Palo Alto CA.

Call for Vendors is now open. Learn more in our blog post and download the application here.


Community Outreach

Throughout the year FabMo participates in community events such as Maker Faire, Earth Day, the San Mateo County Fair, and others. We often offer hands-on activities that reflect our mission by creatively reusing the materials we have rescued, and an opportunity to learn about FabMo’s work.

Check the Calendar for information on where we will be, volunteer to join us in spreading the word, or just stop by. We look forward to seeing you soon!
