How it all began – our idea of the perfect patchwork store
Patchwork Angel opened in March of 1997 in our sweet little church at Forest Glen on the Sunshine Coast in beautiful Queensland, Australia. It is the perfect building to display all our lovely quilts with the high cathedral ceilings.
Here is a picture of how the Church looked originally.
After working at The Patchwork Angel for 4 years Penny and her husband were delighted to have opportunity to buy the business.
Penny confesses to being a patchwork addict since coming to her first class at the Patchwork Angel years ago. “I started my first patchwork class not long after my younger son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Our family was going through a huge adjustment time and I really needed something just for me.” Penny explains.
Penny her husband Chuck (David) and sons Zac and Toby have lived on the Sunshine Coast since moving to Queensland from Victoria in 1994. Penny was a member of the Buderim Craft Cottage Patchwork group for years. At the store we run lots of workshops and classes with our in store tutors as well a guest tutors.
Penny took over the Patchwork Angel in 2006 and has thoroughly enjoyed the journey so far.
Lee has worked in the shop since just after it opened some years ago. She has more than 25 years of experience in the sewing and patchwork industry. Feel free to pick her brains she has lots of knowledge to draw from.
Wendy is a “Tilda’s addict” and an expert doll maker .
Karen has joined our team and is an enthusiastic patchworker, knitter and crocheter.
Chuck has been Penny’s husband and strength for more than 40 years. He came into the business just to do the post run each day and the banking and now manages our Block of the Month department. He is ever patient with the whole team of angels. He has a great eye for colour and often is called out into the shop to help too. He originally started his employment when he was 16 in Menswear.
We carry a huge range of patchwork and quilting patterns, fabric and notions to suit any sewing enthusiast.
We are always ready to help with colour choices and design suggestions. We love to visit local groups and share the passion we have for Patchwork, quilting, sewing and stichery.
