In 2005 Maureen Miller began Palm Beach Quilting in her family home; offering her long arm machine quilting skills to customers who wanted the professional finish and convenience of a machine stitched finish to their quilt. Maureen quickly discovered that wideback quilt fabrics were a fantastic option for her customers - but difficult for them to find. Gradually she introduced a small selection and they quickly became popular.
In 2009 Palm Beach Quilting launched an online store and it has steadily grown as a place to source wideback fabrics, quilting fabrics and various other patterns, notions and kits Australia wide. In 2012 the business moved into the quilt shop we have today, a bright and light filled shop with two quilting machines (Millie & Norman) and literally thousands of fabrics to choose from! You’ll find lots of quilts hanging on the walls, kits and samples to view and a huge variety of products and accessories at our destination store.
Our shop is filled with classes and sewing groups on a regular basis, with special workshops and events featuring talented guest teachers.
PBQ is a Quiltworx Certified Shop; Maureen participates in regular training programs on all the latest developments of Foundation Paper Piecing. We have a huge library of patterns, hundreds of coordinating batiks and classes are run on the latest quilt releases for all our fellow enthusiasts!
Along the way, we’ve been fortunate to support many quilting community groups; held pop up shops at various quilt shows and been a proud supporter of Snuggly Quilts and various other charities.
It has been great connecting with fellow stitchers all around the country and we love seeing familiar names pop up time and again. We are often asked if the shop is located in sunny Queensland due to the name, however we are located much further south on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. The name originated from the street location of Maureen’s home many years ago!
PBQ wants to be providing you always with the most helpful advice and experience we can offer, with a prompt quilting service and a comprehensive range of high quality quilting products. We are very proud of our colourful and friendly shop and excited to see it grow and evolve.
