The Fabric Shop, Gander, NL

I have been having some difficulty getting back to doing 'stuff'' in my studio - especially posting to my blog! But, as promised, here's a few more photos from my trip.

One of the things on my list this trip was Dr. Seuss fabric. Last year I found it in Chicago but after getting home could have kicked myself for not buying it. I could have purchased it on-line but didn't. Anyway, to make a long story short, the only place I found it was at C & M Crafts N Stuff / The Fabric Shop, Gander, Newfoundland. Needless to say, some of it is now in my stash. In fact, I've already started a project with it.

If you are a quilter, this quilt shop is a must visit. I was impressed with the variety of fabrics, notions, threads, kits, yarns and embroidery supplies. There is also a dedicated classroom for teaching quilting classes.

I was told that their other location in Carmanville, has different fabrics (no duplications). On my next visit to central NL, I have to visit that shop as well.


  1. Looks like a lovely store.I like that they stock yarns,threads and such. I'd love a store like that near me:)

  2. What a lovely shop. Thanks for the photos.

  3. One of my dream trips is to head to NFLD, but it is almost as far away as China for me. Looks like the shop would be a nice visit -- aw well, someday maybe...

  4. I am also hankering to visit Nfld!! And if one were moving there, it's wonderful to know that there'd be a fabulous LQS!! Did they have any souvenir fabric that would bring Newfoundland to mind? I always look for that kind of thing.

    1. I didn't see any souvenir fabric that you mention. Fabricville and some local quilt shops often carry Newfoundland Tartan in cotton, polyester and sometimes wool. Check for photo and info on this particular fabric.

  5. Fabric shop envy here, my lqs is Walmart, an hour away....
