Fabric Depot's History
Established in 1992 by Tony and Marie Bosboom, Fabric Depot is the largest fabric store in America and is located in Portland, Oregon. As former owners of the Fabricland chain, Tony and Marie poured a lifetime of experience into their new venture. The Bosbooms understood the needs of the home sewer and thought big - Fabric Depot would occupy a building of 1½ acres and offer the most comprehensive collection of fabrics and notions at the best possible price. Today we have over 20,000 first quality, brand name fabrics in stock and a vast array of notions, patterns, books and quilting supplies. New product arrives daily and we are known for our well-kept store and knowledgeable customer service. The Bosboom's motto of 'Respect for the Home Sewer' is reflected in everything we do, no wonder customers from all over the world love to visit.
