Cindi Rang, Owner
Cindi learned to quilt from her frugal grandmother while learning to make her own clothes, and didn't know there was such a thing as "batting" until she was 22. She loves quilting, every aspect of it. She enjoys the ability to make a quick quilt in two hours, and the challenge and reverence of a hand pieced quilt that takes three years. Cindi is a retired Nurse Practitioner. She leads most of the clubs and is pictured here with her daughter, Brianna.
Brianna Motzkus, Co-Owner
At the age of 21, Brianna is poised to take over the shop in 6 or 7 years when Cindi retires. She is a recent graduate of the Art Institute in Seattle with a textile arts degree. She is still working on her Bachelor's in business while working full time at the shop. Brianna has grown up at the shop, working here since she was 6 years old, back in the days when she worked all day for yards of fabric! She is now married to a great local boy and purchased a home just a few blocks away, she isn't leaving town anytime soon! Brianna is also our machine quilter!
