The Fabric Patch


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, from hand embroidery and hand applique to machine quilting and long arming. 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 has been designing quilts, bags, wallhangings and pincushions and writing patterns for 20 years. She has over 80 original designs and has been featured in international and national publications. Cindi is a retired Nurse Practitioner. She leads most of the clubs, teaches many of the classes, and hosts most of the videos/tutorials featured on the you-tube channel. 

Brianna Motzkus

At the tender age of 4 she sat down for the first time and learned to sew. She was so small that her mom had to put the foot pedal on the table and she guided the fabric with her left hand and pushed the pedal with the right.  When she was 6 her mom (Cindi Rang) opened The Fabric Patch in Ephrata Wa. Brianna has been in the shop for nearly 20 years. She has taught quilting classes, designed some of the shops best selling patterns in the shop, won countless awards and has worked as the store manager since she graduated from Seattle Art Institute where she majored in Fine Arts and Textile Design.

Brianna is exceptional at predicting future trends in fabric design and quilt design because of her experience. She prides herself in designing quilt patterns that are for many skill levels and provides very accurate yardage so the customer has very little waste. She has sold 1000’s of her own patterns just out of one shop.  She started long arming at 6 and at 16 was professionally quilting for customers.
