About MQS

Hello, and welcome to Monkland Quilt Studio!  For the past 10 years, it has been my dream to open a quilt store that not only offers beautiful fabrics and quality notions, but also inspires and encourages sewists to create and learn. 

I started quilting in 2001, and fell in love with the geometry of the patterns, and complexities of colour.  But overall, my fixation, like many quilters, was the fabric. Oh, the fabric!  There is something about seeing a new collection, discovering a new designer, or just lucking out on a great stash-building sale that motivates me (and fills the cupboards in my basement!). 

Then the pandemic hit.  Like a lot of people, I found myself thinking about what I wanted my life to look like when the restrictions lifted.  The overwhelming feeling was a desire to connect with my city, my neighbourhood, and my fellow quilters.  I knew in my heart that it was time to make the leap and open a quilt shop. 

My goal is to have Monkland Quilt Studio be a place where sewists will feel welcome and at home.  I love a shop that provides personal service, where I feel like I can ask questions or get help making a decision, so this is the atmosphere I want to foster in my own store.  In addition to the online shop, you can come to the studio to browse in person, get help putting together a project, or just grab the thread and needles needed to finish your latest project.  

It has been so rewarding to see Monkland Quilt Studio become a place for quilters to come together and inspire each other, learn from each other, and support each other.  I would love to hear your comments and suggestions!  Please use the Contact option on the website, and let me know your thoughts.  Monkland Quilt Studio is here for you, whether you are in Montreal or thousands of miles away. 

Happy Quilting!
