As one of the largest quilt shops in Michigan, we offer kits, classes, samples, and an enormous fabric assortment.
Kathy Seal opened the doors of The Quilt Patch in the fall of 1997. We've outgrown our location twice and become one of the largest quilt shops in Michigan! Our 7,700 square feet of quilt bliss houses over 7,000 bolts of 100% cotton quilting fabric, 200+ samples, oodles upon oodles of kits, and a class room with a capacity of thirty sewing machines.

We have an extensive beginning program for all of the different quilting disciplines: basic machine piecing and quilting; free motion quilting; applique; paper piecing; English paper piecing; hand-quilting; and more. The QP also offers a broad range of intermediate to advanced classes including landscape quilts; raw edge mosaic applique; various totes, bags and purses; and advanced piecing.
We also regularly play host to guest teachers and national instructors including the likes of Kaye England, Charlotte Angotti, Karla Alexander, Penny Haren, Patsy Thompson and Linda Poole. Furthermore, we also host three offsite, demo-filled retreats for 150 quilters annually.
Our carefully selected FABRIC ASSORTMENT is balanced to offer quilters of many styles a wide variety of coordinated large, medium and small prints; solid reading accents; and background fabrics.

SAMPLES have always been our favorite way of inspiring our quilting clientele. Our 200+ samples include quilts, wall hangings, pillows, table runners, placemats, centerpieces, purses, wallets, rugs, aprons and various hand-embroidery projects. Moreover, samples range both in style (from modern to Civil War) and complexity (from done-in-a-weekend to long-term, hand-pieced projects). Best of all, most of our samples ARE made up in color ways different from what's pictured on the pattern so as to give customers multiple color options.
