Thank You for 20 Years! - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Thank You for 20 Years!

This week we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of Fat Quarter Shop!

In June 2003 I launched a small business with a little website not knowing what I was getting into. I’d been quilting for 6 years and thought I was creating an outlet for my favorite hobby. My hope was to one day quit my day job as an accountant to work from home and raise a family. 

My idea was simple – as a quilter I loved fat quarter bundles but I couldn’t find them at my local stores or online.  So I created an online store to sell bundles no one else had. That was it.

Online stores were still a relatively new thing and I had no experience with websites or selling anything. There was no business plan, strategy, or grand idea. I knew I would do my best, be authentic in what I offered, and provide awesome service to all my customers. A wonderful person named Becki helped me buy a domain name and set up a simple website with products.  All I carried were fat quarter bundles, most of them I cut on my home sewing table.

This is the house in Austin where it all started.

What has happened since then I never could have imagined.  We went from selling just bundles to a full-service business and beyond in two decades. We’ve made an endless number of people happy and excited to quilt, stitch, and sew. We’ve started a publishing company, raised almost a million dollars for charity, built large communities on social media where quilters and stitchers connect, created 1,700 YouTube videos offering education and entertainment, and more.

What I am most proud of is Fat Quarter Shop has become way more than just an online store. We have an incredible company and dedicated team of employees doing everything from social media to customer service to shipping. We have loyal customers who are continuously interested in what we’re doing. We are a part of many of your lives on a daily and weekly basis through our social media, YouTube, newsletters and more.  It’s a community that we’re honored to be part of.

Kevin and I selecting fabric oh, so many years ago! We still do this together.

The list of people who have contributed and supported us over the years is endless. It starts with our very first customers twenty years ago and continues to people who may have just noticed us on social media today. We are nowhere without the dedication, hard work and passion of all our employees past and present. There are many others who have helped us along the way, including many within the fabric industry.

On behalf of myself, Kevin, and the entire Fat Quarter Shop team, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the past 20 years.

P.S. This week we’re celebrating with sales and some amazing giveaways – visit this post to learn more. I hope you’ll come back to the blog on Saturday, June 24 for a trip down memory lane.

Stay connected to Fat Quarter Shop!

        Keep up the good work! Happy Quilting 🥰

    2. I had to check for when I placed my first order and was surprised it was as recently as 2016. I thought I had signed up before then. Do you remember what year you first became a FQS fan Mareike?

    3. I love your business, your videos, your products, and your story. Well done and here’s to the next 20 years! 🥂🍾

      1. Happy20th!!! I love everything about Fat Quarter Shop. Your service is excellent and never have I been unhappy. Thank you for answering my questions when I have been in a bind or a mistake I have done. You are like family. Congratulations ❤️

    4. I love fat quarter shop. I’ve been quilting for many years and began doing cross stitch in the 1990’s but work and life got in the way and cross stitch was a thing of the past. I started watching online your website during the pandemic and here was a site doing not only quilting but cross stitch. I immediately signed up on Youtube and your blog. You have brought me up to date on the changes in CS. I now do the loup method which I never knew about years ago. I have learned so much from you and your team. Thank you. Linda from Brunswick Maine.

    5. I love Fat Quarter Shop! Yours was the first you tube I ever saw & I was hooked! Kimberly, you inspire me every week. From the start I think it was because you liked stitching on Aida best. That is my go to fabric because of my shoulder pain & eye sight. Yours & Lori Holt’s simple but lovely designs are wonderful. Here’s to another 20 years hon!

  2. Happy Birthday to my favorite online shopping store – Fat Quarter Shop! I hope you have many many more years of successful operations and thank you for all the freebies and videos, ya’ll are rocking this!

  8. Happy 20th Birthday! 🎉Wishing you many many more!
    FQS is my absolute go to. Thank you for the wonderful job you do!

  9. What an amazing journey you have had. When I started quitting a few years ago Fat Quarter Shop was one of the online shops I checked out and is my favorite today. Great company and great customer service. Thank you for all your hard work putting this company together.

  10. I love The Fat Quarter Shop. The fabrics are beautiful and high quality. Orders are always packaged beautifully and service is great. Also love watching the videos. Happy Birthday!!!

  11. Happy birthday! Thank you for all the free quilt patterns and tutorials!They are a blessing for all quilters but are especially helpful for new quilters.

  12. Congrats on 20 years!! I love browsing and shopping at your shop!
    Your customer service is top of the line and y’all are much appreciated!!

  13. Your customer service is awesome. Recently a friend placed an order with FQS. She was thrilled by your service as she mentioned it several times! Congratulations on your anniversary!! Your company is great!

  14. Happy Birthday FQS!!! I have purchased fabric from FQS off and on for years but then a bit over a year ago as I was watching one of your quilting YouTube videos you mentioned the FlossTube for cross stitch. I had cross stitched back in the 80’s but had not done so since. Anyways – your FlossTube got me back in the groove with cross stitch and I am loving it along with quilting. I am a CPA in the state of KS so quilting and cross stitch is an outlet from that stressful work. I purchase more than I can keep up with but I tell everyone I am buying for retirement (7 more years!) – LOL

  15. Thank you so much for all the things you do for us and
    everyone who quilts. Best wishes on twenty years and
    hope you have twenty more.

  16. Your shop does a terrific job of describing the fabric and the photos are excellent! I’ve never been disappointed in the fabric because of the shop details and color! What I am thankful for, as well, are the free patterns! Your tutorials encourage me that I can do this. Thank you, Kimberly, Kevin and staff!

  17. Congratulations 🎉 I love watching your videos and your fabric choice are amazing.

  18. Thank you for being a part of my quilting and cross stitch journey. I have learned so much from watching and sometimes rewatching your YouTube videos. I am a better quilter and cross stitcher for it. You are an inspiration!

  19. I found FQS about 8 years ago…it’s my favorite online store and I try not to miss the livestreams, the tutorials and see the posts…it keeps me excited to start another new project…happy birthday!

  20. Congratulations! I love your store! You are all so friendly and helpful!

  21. Kimberly and Kevin, CONGRATULATIONS on 20 years of business!!! I love your online shop. All the fabric I have ordered is of excellent quality and exactly as described!! I have reached out with questions several times, and have always been so very impressed with the help I always receive. Your employees, and you, go above and beyond. Thankful doesn’t adequately describe how I feel about the Fat Quarter Shop and all you do. May God continue to bless each of you in the years to come.

  31. Thank you for being my go-to shop for fabric and quilting goodies. Congratulations on 20 years of providing happiness for so many quilters!!

  32. I arrived at the party late! I discovered FQS late 2021. After watching for 4 months, I bought my first sewing machine. Within days I sewed through my finger..a lesson well learned. Since then I have slowly learned how to sew by viewing FQS. Thank you Kimberly for sharing your passion. Happy Birthday!

  33. Congratulations Kimberly and team! I know Fat Quarter Shop has been a blessing to so many like myself that have no where close to us to purchase beautiful fabric and notions. I’ve learned so much from your tutorials as well. God continue to bless you as you bless others.

  34. Congratulations on your 20th Anniversary. I remember when you started having a booth in Paducah and people rushed to get to it. I’m not sure who the gentleman was that was behind the booth keeping it stocked and answering questions but he was a gem, and very patient with the crowd. For several years I subscribed to your monthly fat quarter service and loved your selections!

  35. Happy Birthday & 20th Anniversary. I found you through social media and have been in awe ever since. I’m not a customer yet, but it’s in the plans. Thank you for everything y’all do and share.

  92. Congratulations Fat Quarter Shop on your 20th birthday! I started quilting in 2019 and yours was the first place I bought quilting supplies from.

    Happy quilting!
    Ann Nora

  95. Congrats! As soon as we got “the Internet” at work (1993 or 1994) I ordered charm packs from you! Still shopping with you.

  96. Wow! 20 years and going strong … I remember when I started quilting maybe 10 years ago(?; your online store came up when I was browsing for fabric. I’ve been a fan ever since. Congratulations on a very successful business and cheers on many more years to come!

  97. Congrats on your 20 year birthday I was introduced to you from Pat Sloan in 2020. Your customer service is great. You have many wonderful projects and awesome merchandise and I enjoy your videos. I love your mystery boxes and sew samplers. Many blessings to you and your staff, to your company and to another 20 year celebration ❤️

  98. Happy 25th! Love your shop and all of the ways you help us with our quilting and cross stitching’

  99. It’s happy everything when it comes to FQS. Congrats and please know your shop is perfect in every way. You are always my first stop for fabric and supplies. Every year I see the growth and appreciate the videos and free patterns which always inspires me. Thank you!!!!

  100. Congratulations! I’m not sure how long ago I started buying from you, but close to 20 years. Thanks for all you do!

  101. Congratulations on 20 years!!! I have learned so much from Fat Quarter Shop over the years and customer service is the best. #1!!!

  102. You did something right all these years! One of my favorite online shops. Congratulations.

  103. Congratulations on your first twenty years. God’s blessings on you as you begin your next twenty years and beyond. I have never been disappointed in what you have on your website. Keep up the great work with what you have to offer.

  104. Love the selection that you provide and there always seems to be lots of variety. As a Canadian using your on line services, it has become almost too expensive to purchase with the added currency exchange and transportation fees. This saddens me as you have always been my go to location for fabrics I just couldn’t find elsewhere. Congratulations on surviving 20 years in business, it has to be a labour of love .

  105. Oh how young for 20!! Happy, Happy Birthday…..I certainly hope that you have many more! I have learned so very much from watching your tutorials and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for that! Keep up the great work and I wish you many, many more years. Congratulations!

  106. Happy 20th Birthday ❤️
    Thank you for wonderful quilt and cross stitch shopping hauls.

  107. Congratulations on your 20 year anniversary. I’ve always received wonderful service.

  108. I made my first quilt using a book I bought – “Beginner Quilting”. That quilt was ok and the recipient still has it to this day. I wanted to learn more so I started searching You Tube. I found videos by Kimberly Jolly from the Fat Quarter Shop. I was very impressed and have been a customer and avid supporter ever since. The moment I see something on the website I order because I know it will no doubt sell out. I have been very pleased with fast shipping, packaging of my items, Kimberly’s videos and blogs, Customer Ssrvice, and her overall enthusiasm. I also get a chuckle from her “little stories” when she posts a new video. Thank you to Kimberly, Kevin, and the entire FQS team for everything you do. You honesty, integrity, and kindness is above reproach. Congratulations on 20 years and I would venture to say that – “the best is yet come”.

  109. Congrats and happy birthday! It’s hard to believe how time has flown by. When I got back into quilting back in the late 90’s. Then it was just getting popular to order fabric on line. That’s when I found your website and enjoyed enjoyed browsing and ordering. Happy Birthday again!!!!

  110. Happy 20th Birthday!!! I hope there are many, many, many more to come!! ❤️❤️🎉🎉🎉

  111. I discovered FQS about 5 years ago, and while I’ve purchased from other online shops, I am primarily an FQS fan now because of your incredible selection of items, the fact that you also carry cross stitch supplies, the fantastic customer service, but more than anything, I appreciate everything over the past three years that FQS has done for us as customers and viewers.

  112. I have become a better quilter from watching you all these years. I may not use everything you’ve taught me on every quilt. But when things are not going right I think on the points that I’ve learned from you and go back and correct what’s wrong. At least I can figure out what I need to do to fix it, for that thank you Kimberly.

  113. Congrats to You and Kevin and the entire FQS team. You’ve built a great company that I enjoy doing business with! Just all around stellar!

  114. Congratulations on 20 years! Quite a milestone, top notch customer service and fast service. Especially like the kits in which Fat Quarter Shop is generous, so I can always make a least one mistake, lol.

    To many more years!

  115. Happy birthday! You are right, you attention to detail and customer service are what keeps bringing me back to your online shop. May you enjoy many more years of fun.

  116. May I say that The Fat Quarter Shop and especially Kimberley has made me very happy, everyday with your blogs, your Flash Sales, you fabric choices, your videos and your sew-a-longs. Thank you. My husband may not be quite as excited but if Mama is happy he is happy!! LOL I admire you putting your family first. Something you will never regret. Speaking to you as a 73 yr old who still follows her granddaughter to her college softball games and takes her boys to the movies and out to eat. You will never regret the time.

  117. Just received my Geri Robinson ‘Heartfelt’ order. FQS has always been my first go to site when looking for fabric. I love the selection, fast shipping, youtube videos and especially the customer service. Congratulations on your 20th Anniversary of providing quality fabric….onto the next 20😍

Thank you for FQS’s wonderful support and customer service. Happy 20th Anniversary!

  149. Congratulations on 20 years! I have learned so much from you and your guests. I have been watching since Lily was your videographer and stand-in host.
