Welcome to my studio | Club Tissus x Shannon Fraser Designs - Part 1

Shannon's Sewing Room featuring colorful quilts hanging on the rack + mini quilts featured on the wall | Club Tissus x Shannon Fraser Designs Part 1

I’m so excited to be welcoming you into my sewing studio today!

I’ve had the lovely pleasure of collaborating with Club Tissus (a local family run small fabric store chain here in Quebec) as a special guest for their Quilt Week running from January 21 through January 31, 2021. 

Club Tissus happens to be one of the very first fabric stores I started shopping at for all my fiber goodies when I started sewing back in 2011. At that time, it was so difficult to find the type of fabrics I was on the hunt for and Club Tissus came to the rescue! I can still remember standing in their linen section happy as a clam trying to resist buying allllll the bolts – ha!

When I was designing my blue Dresden Quilt (which was the second quilt I ever took on), I turned to their helpful staff to guide me in how much fabric to buy to cover my project needs. This was before I knew anything about quilty math and calculating yardage (or meters, as we tend to use here in Canada) for quilts. Walking out with my stack of textiles was so exciting and I loved that I wasn’t short on any of the colours!

So, when Club Tissus approached me with the idea of creating a film to take you inside my creative space and share a little more about my quilting journey I was ALL in! Not only was I getting to support a local supplier who helped me in my early sewing days, but I was so excited to get to bring you into my quilty world through film!

If you’ve been wondering what things look like behind the scenes here at SFD Headquarters, then today’s your lucky day!

Come take a peek inside my creative space.


Happy viewing!
