About Us

Thank you for visiting the Fat Quarter Shop and having an interest in learning a little more about us!

The Fat Quarter Shop was founded in 2003 by Kimberly Jolly. An avid quilter, Kimberly began her shop as a side business while still working a corporate position, cutting, packing and shipping right out of her house during evenings and weekends. From the very beginning, she was committed to delivering top-notch service for every single order and customer. As the Fat Quarter Shop's reputation grew, Kimberly decided to make it a full-time operation. Her husband Kevin joined her not long after, and with his help, lots of hard work, and a tireless commitment, the store began to grow. Over the past few years a few more people have joined the staff!

As a team, we continue to branch out with the best fabrics, exclusive kits, quilt clubs, BOMs, and more. And we will always be driven by the passion that Kimberly founded the store upon, which is always giving you the best products and service!

Austin, Texas.

In your own words, what do you do at Fat Quarter Shop?
I am in charge of buying and ordering our fabric and other merchandise, creating and executing new BOMs, clubs and kits, finding new patterns and designers, and coordinating the multitude of daily tasks that keep the shop running as smoothly as possible.

We’re always trying to do new stuff and coming up with new ideas. If we come up with something really good, most of the time we just do it immediately.

A lot of our best ideas, whether they are kits, products or promotions, have gone from idea to reality in just a day or two.
