FabMo is something a friend of mine mentioned to me and while I haven’t had a chance to go yet it sound like a fun day trip for any crafter or sewer.
A quick 3-minute video: The FabMo Story
FabMo is a non-profit organization that saves mostly fabric but also tile, wood and leather scraps from ending up in dumpsters. The collect they scraps from all sorts of retailers and once a month open their warehouse to the public. People are highly encouraged to schedule an appointment (there is also a drop-in period) to come and browse the material and take anything that they can use, for FREE!
Location: 2423 Old Middlefield Way, Mountain View, 94043 (in same building and immediately behind Bajis’ Down the Street Cafe)
Crazy as it sounds FabMo has been doing this for over 10 years and it sound like a terrific way recycle and reuse. Check it out and tell me what you think.
