About Our Shop

The Fat Quarter quilting and Fabric shop.
Providing top quality fabrics, notions and
services for quilters and hobbyists alike.

Meet Leah. Owner of The Fat Quarter!

Hi! I’m Leah! I’ve been quilting for 26 years but it was just a hobby up until recently. In February of 2018, I started planning quilting classes with friends.  However, before I had the class up and running, I had two full groups from beginners to experienced quilters. It was then I started my home-based business, The Fat Quarter Quilts and Fabrics sales.

My shop specializes in modern to contemporary fabric, from bright and colourful prints, to gorgeous low volume collections.  Classes remain an important part of my business, so I continue to run quilting classes for all skill levels from beginner to advanced. I have hosted several retreats here in Gander and have taken my mobile shop to retreats and festivals hosted by other groups outside of Gander.

I began as a home-based business, but have since purchased a mobile unit to take my shop on the road!  I’m primarily based in Gander, however, I plan to attend festivals, offer quilting retreats, and visit towns across the province!

Quilting is more than a hobby for me, it's a passion.  I am here to help you at every stage of your quilting adventure!  I provide the highest level of service in everything I do, and I look forward to providing that same level of service to you.

What do We do?

We ship happy fabric (and notions!) to our customers in Canada and the U.S.

We sell premium quilting fabric from the top manufacturers in the industry, as we believe when you’re working on something so personal, you should have the best material for the job!

Our little shop on wheels is here to serve you 24/7. We take pride in making it the fastest and best we can for our customers.

I’m nuts about quilting!  In addition to running my shop I quilt as often as I can, time, children and granddaughter permitting.

I am a member of the YQX Quilting Guild in Gander, Cabot Guild in St. John's and a juried member of the NL Craft council.
