About Sew Many Stitches

Sew Many Stitches is a Newfoundland owned and operated, full service quilt shop. It started out as a labour of love in the basement of owner Debbie Northover's home in 2008. An avid quilter, Debbie desired finishing her quilts with ease and comfort using a Long Arm quilting machine, from there a business was born. Debbie became a dealer for APQS and Brother, selling machines, custom quilts, and offering quilting services to customers; eventually teaching classes in her home.
