In 2014, Angie's son left for the Army and as any mother would be, her idle mind was in need of distraction. On the suggestion of a friend, Angie signed up for a beginners quilting class to try out something totally new. After the class ended, like so many of us...she was hooked! Angie found herself in a group of fellow quilters who dubbed themselves the "Magnificent 6" and she attributes her growth and success to these wonderful women. These quilting besties helped Angie to develop her style and vision for what Farm Girl Quilting would soon become. At home, her husband Pete was thrilled with Angie's new found passion as he grew up at the foot of his mothers sewing machine and has a deep appreciation for the craft.
Together, Angie and Pete ventured into opening a shop of their own that would offer fabric, notions, memory quilt making, longarm quilting, and machine service. With a growing inventory and customer base the need for a dedicated space was in the front of their minds. In keeping with their vision, it was only fitting the shop live on in a 30 year old barn sitting on their property...but that meant renovations were in need! Pete, aka the muscle, has been hard at work renovating the space for a grand opening to align with the 2023 All Florida Shop Hop on March 1st and has made so much progress! Angie is growing her longarm quilting services, bringing in adorable collections, and promoting the shop in each way she knows how...all while working full time!
This dynamic duo is eager to welcome customers, host classes, and provide a warm welcome shop for Florida quilters (and those out of state of course). They are honored to be featured during the Local Quilt Shop contest and humbled by the support they have received so far. Angie looks forward to hosting By Annie bag making classes and is proud to sell By Annie products at Farm Girl Quilting.
