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 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.
