Introducing… QT’s Sewing Salesman!

We are excited to introduce to you a new series on our blog, QT’s Sewing Salesman!  That’s right, Regional Sales Manager Mike Flynn, is creating videos while making the quilt projects we offer with our fabric collections.   Mike is one of those 24/7, on-the-go, never stops kind of people… We think he’s funny and has a lot of good tips!  Check it out!

Sew along with our Sewing Salesman!  Laugh, learn and create…


SEWINGSALESMAN

I’m Mike Flynn, the Southern Retail Sales Manager for QT Fabrics.  When I started 6 years ago, I was a garment sewer only, making fun shirts for myself.  But selling fabric to quilt shops got me interested in trying to make a quilt, and once I made one, I was hooked!  I learned how to make quilts by asking my quilt shop owners/customers, and learned from many different experts.  Now I hope to pass some of this vast store of southern quilting knowledge on to you.  Enjoy!


The first project up features our Mustang Sunset collection by Dan Morris.  The quilt pattern is Cowboy Memories II by The Whimsical Workshop – available for-sale here! 

This quilt-along blog will be sent out in 8 segments.  Go at your own pace! We will post these videos each Saturday and you can follow along – be sure to subscribe to our QT Fabrics Youtube channel!
