Hi, I'm Brenda Miller and I like to think of myself as a do-it-yourself kind of gal. That's how my pattern line Among Brenda's Quilts & Bags got its start in 2005. That’s when I decided to teach quilting classes and write patterns for my students. Things got totally out of hand from there when I started designing all kinds of things like quilts, table runners, bags, casserole carriers, picnic totes - really anything. If I had a request for an article that I thought others would find stylish and functional, I'd make it!  Keeping my patterns uniquely different, simple to follow, well-illustrated and fun to sew forms the foundation of my pattern business.    

At our quilting store, ABQ Sewing Studio in Strathroy, Ontario, you’ll find everything you’ll need to make your sewing and quilting projects. We also sell Baby Lock sewing, serging, embroidery and quilting machines. Classes are also available - we have private classes if you’d like to work on a specific project, or, maybe you have a sewing machine you don’t understand. If your sewing machine is in need of some TLC we take in all makes and models for repair and cleaning.

Online selling is just an extension of being available to you, our customer. Naturally, online you can shop with us at any time of the day or night at Here at the store, we also offer Block of the Month projects as online classes with teacher Kelley Richardson. If you want to make a bag, I have an online class site where you can learn to make beautiful bags in your own time called Make Bags With Brenda.

The ABQ Sewing Studio is located at 15 Centre St. W. in Strathroy, Ontario, Canada. In case you are wondering, the business is called Among Brenda's Quilts (ABQ) because my marmalade tabby cat Harry and sidekick Schnuggie are often among or on top of my sewing while I'm working. If you have a cat friend in your house you'll know what I mean!    

The rest of the ABQ team consists of sewing machine expert and teacher Kelley Richardson and the former owner of the famous Marsh Quilting Store, Shirley Parkin. She’s an incredible help when you are ready to work out the best fabric colors for your perfect pattern. She’s also a living encyclopedia of quilting techniques.  Kathy Wodrich, my sister-in-law, is my go-to girl when we are on the road teaching. These girls always come to my rescue when the work piles up. I feel very fortunate to be able to share my patterns and all the ABQ Sewing Studio has to offer with you. That's because I know that nothing would be possible without the support of you, my family and my friends.  

Thanks for shopping and happy sewing to you!
