Fabric Depot is one of the largest, most complete, locally and independently-owned fabric stores in the country. They stock a vast array of brand name, first quality fabrics, notions and crafts in an enormous, well-maintained store. You'll be inspired by 20,000 fabrics in various departments: Quilting, Bridal, Home Decor, and Fashion. Fabric Depot also carries a great selection of quilting supplies, sewing notions, books, patterns, yarns, gifts and even specialty foods! A major railhead serving the Columbia Plateau, the town of Pendleton was a wool shipping center for sheep growers of the region. The mill, originally built in 1893, began as a wool scouring plant, which washed the raw wool before shipping. Pendleton’s is an Oregon institution for woolen wear. Although we won’t travel to Pendleton, where the original Mill still stands, and is operating, we will stop at one of the stores that the products are sold!
