Welcome to Cobar Quilt Shop Online, an online fabric, pattern and haberdashery store. My name is Sarah and I love to sew quilts, patchwork projects, bags and childrens clothing.
Cobar Quilt Shop also has a bricks and mortar store located in the far west of NSW in my home town of Cobar. Cobar is the cross roads for many trips North to South or East to West. It is a small mining community with approximately 5000 people in our Shire (which is the size of Tasmania!).
Cobar Quilt Shop began when I moved out of home at the tender age of 18 and moved almost 2000km away to live with my now husband. Colleen (Mum) was lost and needed a distraction from the loss she was feeling and took up the hobby of patchwork. Her love grew and grew until her house looked like a shop, literally! Seeing a need within our local community and with a little encouragement and support from her family, she opened the doors of Cobar Quilt Shop in March 2007.
During that time, Colleens passion for patchwork was growing, and I was growing too... I married my best friend and we had our first son together. We had a few big moves over the years, from Townsville to Airlie Beach to Tasmania. But once we began our family we knew it was time to head home for the support that all us first time parents needed. Just in time to help Mum set up the shop and began learning the art of patchwork. I had always been crafty and was gifted my first sewing machine and overlocker while just a teenager. Although clothing was more my thing at the time.
Fast forward 13 years to 2020, I now have 2 lovely boys and an every growing love of patchwork and sewing but sadly it's come time that Colleen is wanting to retire. Lucky me because I can't think of a better way to spend my days than being surrounded by hundreds of beautiful fabrics and enjoying time with our wonderful quilting community both locally and online. I really enjoy helping others learn and love to see their excitement and disbelief when customers achieve something they thought was completely beyond themselves.
I hope you enjoy looking through my store, it is my desire that you will find everything that you need to create beautiful quilts (or clothing) for you and your family. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you need assistance with your order or have questions about a product.
