SF Etsy FabMo Field Trip

Last week, SF Etsy had a field trip to FabMo for a special, private selection event. 

Fabric, fun folks, and all sorts of other upcycled creative materials -- what could be better?

It's always a treasure hunt to dig through the sumptuous piles of designer fabrics. You never know what you'll find! Most are samples, many of them discontinued, that have been recycled from various venues in the SF Bay Area. Personally, I was on the hunt for cottons that I could make into re-usable snack bags for my kids' lunch boxes (yep, back to school time!) as well as luxurious textures and beautiful colors that I could fashion into bags or use for collage quilts. I left with a tote back jam packed with gorgeous finds!

In addition to all the great fabrics, they had wall papers, tiles, zippers, buttons, carpet squares.... it really is fabrics and MORE!

It was a perfect get-together for us crafty folks -- many thanks to FabMo for hosting us and to Rebecca of OodleBaDoodle for organizing this meet up!  

Sad you missed out? Keep in mind that FabMo has public selection events (appointments required) every month -- check out their website for a schedule.

Interested in another FabMo SF Etsy selection event? Let us know in the comments!
