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 Rang 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.

Our Sewing Machine Technicians

Jordan Rang
Jordan Rang is the oldest of the Rang children. Jordan went into the Navy right out of high school. He received letters of commendation from Army Generals and Fleet commanders for his mechanical ability while in Afghanistan and Guam, but left the Navy after 6 years because he missed his family (...mostly his mom... says Cindi).

He does most of the machine repairs. He is a certified technician and even makes house calls for long arms. He is at the shop cleaning and repairing machines every Friday. Most of the time your machine is ready by the time you are done shopping... no need to be without it for long! 

Jordan is the proud father of 3, Eliza (8), Orion (4) and Aurora (2), and he is married to Brianna's husband's sister...   Brother and sister married brother and sister. Yes, their children look alike!

Jared Rang
Jared Rang is Cindi's youngest son (and Brianna's little brother). He is also married to Crystal, one of the local long arm quilters. Jared is a sewing machine tech but his preference is woodworking. He makes the special double ended seam rippers, stilettos and pencils we sell at the shop. He also makes the quilt ladders, stock or custom, just $69 each.
