About Bridget & Mike
Bridget comes from a family of eight children: six girls, and two boys. The journey started early on in Port Jervis, NY where her grandmother allowed her hobby... to expand into what became a full-time job of designing and sewing wedding gowns. Later in life, she would always say that her career was not really a job...it was a passion. Her granddaughters followed suit at an early age, and along with their mother, known throughout the family as G-Ma, blossomed into a family of passionate sewers, quilters, and embroiderers. They have a little family saying..."sisters who sew, laugh & drink wine together, will stay together". I know that they are still working on their two brothers...but to date, no luck bringing them into the fold.
So now fast forward many years.....
We moved to Naples in 2010 and Bridget became a customer and friend of Flash over the ensuing years...even after my business took us back up to the northeast again in 2015. We moved back to Florida in 2018, and not to long after, decided to take a trip to Naples to meet with Harold. Bridget was pining to open her own store in the St Augustine area and was looking for some advice. Me...I was thinking about nothing more than golfing, fishing and just plain relaxing.
The rest is kind of history. Just like when Harold sold Bridget all those machines over the past years...he and Cindy ended up selling us their business.
The great news for us is that we inherited a tremendous business, with unbelievable customers...and a tremendous team consisting of (ladies first) Debi, Rosemary, Paula, Adon and of course Joe, and then Harold introduced us to Kathy G. In October of 2020, we moved to our new showroom location at 13240 Tamiami Trail in Naples, FL and have been fortunate enough to have a number of other great individuals join our team
We want to provide our customers with the best Sewing Machines on the market, Baby Lock & Bernina, the finest selection of fabrics, threads, furniture, notions & classes …not to mention the highest level of service possible in the industry
Our goal at Flash Sew & Quilt is quite simple….we will always appreciate your business, and simply can’t wait to exceed your expectations
So that...is the story!
