Kathy Seal opened the doors of The Quilt Patch in the fall of 1997 and was able to out grow the shops location twice and become one of the largest quilt shops in Michigan! In September 2022 Kathy sold The Quilt Patch to Lorraine McNeal-Gable. Lorraine came with 10 years of quilt industry experience, she is a former quilt shop manager and former direct sales representative for multiple fabric manufacturers. She looks forward to bringing new ideas and products in while keeping the same wonderful customer service that has been recognized for the past 25 years. Lorraine looks forward to celebrating The Quilt Patch's 50th Anniversary!
