The Original Store: Steinberg & Sons, Los Angeles

Steinberg & Sons was established in 1919 down in Los Angeles. Bob grew up in the family business working with his father, grandfather, and uncles.

Bob Steinberg's Fabric Emporium: Established 1967 in West Hollywood

In 1967, Bob established Bob Steinberg's Fabric Emporium in West Hollywood on Melrose Avenue, where Suzan worked and played as a child.

This store was a major change in how fabric was sold on the retail level. It was one of the first natural fiber fabric stores with rooms of imported fabrics from all over the world, including calicos, paisleys and one of the finest collections of prints from India and Africa.
Stonemountain Fabrics: Established 1976 in Pacific Grove & Watsonville
In 1976 Bob moved his family to Pacific Grove on the Monterey Peninsula and opened up Stonemountain Fabrics (Stonemountain is the translation of Steinberg). A small, wonderful store, Bob sold the fabrics he purchased from a long-time connection in the apparel industry in Los Angeles. Fabric lovers from all over were very happy to find these garment industry fabrics at great prices.
Stonemountain & Daughter Fabrics: 1981 - Present in Downtown Berkeley
After completing her studies at UC Berkeley, Suzan joined her father at the store's new location in the East Bay community. Thus, Stonemountain & Daughter Fabrics was born! 
Three expansions and 36 years later, the store has grown into a top fabric and sewing center in Berkeley. 

Come explore 6,000 square feet full of potential!
