Marion Marshall had a long term dream to open a quilt shop and create a place where her customers could come and escape from their own realities, to relax, enjoy and be inspired.
Realising that her own local area was the perfect location and that a quilt shop was missing in the mix of attractions on offer, both for the locals and the tourists, Marion set about turning her dream into reality and The Quilters Angel was born on the first of September 2004...
Her daughter Steph joined the team in 2006 to 'help out' - but has never left!
They welcomed another 'Angel' to the family in 2017, Zoe. And the newest ‘Angel’ Lucy in 2021.
On 30th June 2020, The Quilters Angel closed the door to it's bricks and mortar store to concentrate on their virtual store and taking their scrumptious fabric, quilting and stitching treasures around Australia!
"While we won’t have a physical shopfront for the time being, we have our trusty pink ‘Angel Trailer’ all fitted out ready to do lots of road trips for pop-up shops, craft shows and special events - so instead of our customers coming to US, we’ll be coming to YOU!"
The Quilters Angel girls are going to be 'Quilting Gypsies' for a little while … but who knows … just like Gypsies sometimes settle in one place, they may find another shopfront home for their beloved business.
Marion and Steph also host two annual events - the GIRLS STITCH IN
in March, and the STITCHERS DREAM DAY OUT
in September. Both events are about kindred spirits gathering together in beautifully decorated venue to share a day of hand stitching, friendship and food.
