About Us

Our Story

Fabric Center began in 1983 by Ken & Joan Cahoon and their children as a tiny store in West Jordan that offered flatfold fabrics and assorted trims & notions at great prices with an emphasis on great customer service. In 2001, Ken and Joan found the opportunity to own their own building and moved to our current location. This enabled the store to better meet the needs of its customers and to carry on the tradition of passing savings through competitive prices. It's been 30 years and the store has experienced another new and exciting change. Last year, Ken and Joan made the bittersweet decision to start a new adventure known as retirement and passed the store on to daughter and son-in-law, Lisa and John Conrad. While Lisa and John have many exciting plans for the future of Fabric Center, they have no desire to stray from the hard work and impeccable business values created by Ken and Joan, these are reflected in Fabric Center's mission statement as well as its success.
