About Me

cindy fabric shop owner with bolts of fabric

Hi, I’m Cindy

I love sewing, quilting and all things creative!

I started sewing when I was 8 years old and my passion led to me taking a degree in Textile Design.

After years of teaching creative arts at school, I set up Overdale Fabrics in 2013 to help quilters and crafters easily find beautiful fabrics for their projects.

These days, you can find me developing new designs as well as helping customers with anything they need – or just chatting about all things fabric related!
