Who We Are

My name is Janine and over the past 10 years i have developed a real passion for making things using patchwork and quilting techniques.  I make my own patterns and find working with bright colours and bold patterned fabrics inspiring.  I love making things that look pretty and have a purpose and find the whole process of patchwork calming and rewarding, patchwork is my way of switching off from a busy day! 

To this end i have bought A LOT of fabric online and have a pretty impressive stash (even if i do say so myself :-)).  My hours of “research” using online fabric stores made me realise that it was more difficult than it should be to find and purchase what i was looking for online so i decided to set up a store myself and that was where TheFatQuarter began.

We now have an ever improving online store where we strive to give great customer service, competitive prices and fast delivery. We have new fabric ranges regularly coming in stock, a constantly growing supply of supporting products (haberdashery and tools) and a new online blog providing you, our customers with great ideas and an insight into our world of patchwork and quilting. We also have a great following on our Facebook page and a growing presence on Instagram where we share our latest products and makes.

We now have a phisical store too!  Check out our Banbury Store details to take a peek 

On that note, welcome to TheFatQuarter and i hope that you like what you find.  As always there is lots of room for improvement, if you have any suggestions or requests please contact our customer service team and we will try our best to help.
