Gabby's great grandmother, Fanny Vannatter, had an antique treadle sewing machine and worked as a seamstress and quilt maker. From her great grandmother, her craft and gift of sewing and quilting was passed on to her grandmother, Lillian Vannatter, who managed fabric and sewing machine sales in a repair shop in Hurricane, West Virginia. Lillian's husband was a Singer-Certified technician.
Rebecca Chapman, known to all of her colleagues and customers as Gabby, first became interested in the craft of sewing at a young age. She began working in a small, local shop that provided sewing machine repair and sales. It was then that Gabby realized her love and passion for the craft and the people she served. It was then that Gabby decided to continue the legacy that had begun with her great grandmother and been passed down through the generations.
At the end of 2015, through a lot of prayer and research, she found a building to lease from a family friend and that's when Gabby's Sewing and More became official.
