About us

Hello there!

I'm Janine, and over the past decade, my love for patchwork and quilting has grown immensely. Designing my own patterns and working with vibrant colors and bold fabrics is a constant source of inspiration. Creating not just beautiful pieces but also functional ones brings me immense satisfaction. The process of patchwork itself is incredibly calming and fulfilling, offering me the perfect escape from the daily hustle and bustle.

My creative journey led me to accumulate a substantial collection of fabrics, thanks to what I affectionately call "research" on various online fabric stores. It became clear to me that finding the right materials online could be more challenging than it should be. This realisation sparked the idea to create my own store, giving birth to TheFatQuarter.

Today, we've transformed into a continuously improving online store with a commitment to delivering excellent customer service, competitive prices, and speedy deliveries.

Our offerings include an online store that serves the entire UK, and we're excited to have a physical shop in Banbury. In Banbury, we offer classes, workshops, and a Longarm quilting service using our Handi Quilter Infinity 26 with Pro Stitcher.

We take great pride in offering only top-quality, branded fabrics from well-known names such as Makower, Moda, Liberty, Dashwood Studios, and more. We also provide a wide range of patterns, equipment, and notions to support and enhance your quilting journey.

At TheFatQuarter, we have a small, dedicated team working at the shop, and we're always thrilled to assist in any way possible. Please don't hesitate to reach out if there's anything we can do to make your quilting experience even more enjoyable.

We've also built a lovely community on our Facebook page and are expanding our presence on Instagram, sharing our latest products and creative projects.

With all that said, I extend a warm welcome to TheFatQuarter, and I truly hope you find joy in what you discover here. We're constantly open to suggestions and requests for improvements, so please feel free to contact our customer service team. We're here to help to the best of our abilities.

Happy quilting!
