Rainbow Resource Co. was founded in 1973 in the South Bay area of
Southern California. After having a retail fabric store presence in both
Southern and Northern California for several years, Charlene Younker
re-located in '81 to the Mendocino coastline of Northern California.
Charlene began by designing doll clothes and later majored in fashion
design in college. She sold her original designs in Hollywood and other
trendy areas of Southern California. A desire to create unique items led
her into exploring dyeing, screen printing, and other surface design
A family history of piecework and quilting led to using these techniques in
wearable art, home decor, and embellished quilts. Charlene now works
exclusively out of her home based studio in Albion and can be found at
selected Quilt Shows. [See her schedule on the Show Schedule tab.]
We specialize in unique hand-dyed items - venise lace, rick-rack, tape
measure trims, ribbons and other embellishments - even bamboo socks!
For more information or to order any of our products, call 707-937-0431
between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm (Pacific Time).
