"In November 2019 I happened to come across an ad for quilting classes. Keeping in mind that I had never quilted before, I reached out to Leah and explained that I was just a beginner and would love to learn. From day one she was kind, caring, reassuring and very very informative. (Who knew there was a right and wrong way to cut fabric!)
The Fat quarter provides exceptional customer service, and has a wonderful selection of material and is always able to answer any questions. The pre cut kits are a favorite of mine.
Since I have started in November I have become hooked and Leah has been there for every question I have had along the way.
I highly recommend taking any courses that are offered by Leah @ The Fat Quarter."
"I have had the privilege of being both a customer and student of Leah. I have availed of Leah’s extensive knowledge of quilting in her classes and when visiting The Fat Quarter, Leah’s mobile fabric store. In both, Leah is welcoming, patient, helpful and responsive to client/customer needs, whether you’re learning to sew or choosing fabric from the extensive selection in her store. Whether instructing or serving, Leah is professional, flexible and knowledgeable. Her joy of quilting is contagious and it’s a privilege to continue to learn from Leah with each visit."
"I started sewing classes with Leah at The Fat Quarter two years ago as a
first time sewer. I didn’t know how to thread the sewing machine needle when I started! Through her extreme knowledge and patience, I’ve now completed three beautiful quilts. She has a wealth of knowledge to share and keeps up with all the new trends that her industry has to offer. She is a true professional! Her classes are very relaxed, a fantastic way to unwind. Leah is an amazing teacher, prepare to be wowed in a very short time!!"
"Shortly after arriving in Gander from South Africa I noticed the advert for a quilting class on Leah’s FAT QUARTER truck in the middle of town. As it was going to be my first-time quilting, I was a bit nervous and didn’t know what to expect. I shouldn’t have worried. Leah helped me to choose a beginner’s pattern and guided me in my choice of materials. What I appreciated most in her class is the space she gave me to make my own mistakes, sort them out with her help and her positive encouragement. Overall, there must have been between 10 to 15 ladies in each of her classes, but in a mysterious way Leah was always close by if one of us needed help. I loved to attend each and every class. Made new friends and will join her classes in the future. Leah is simply the BEST!!"
