Our Flynn Family has been quilting for 93 years; (oh, my gosh!) 35 for Brooke, 33 for John and 25 for Kate who entered her first quilt show at age 8. That's a lot of enjoyment and creativity along with frustration at times; broken needles, tangled thread, blocks or borders that don't work, but mostly just pure pleasure and relaxation at a time honored art.
Along the way, John Flynn started making a scroll hand quilting frame for family and friends. Many happy hours were spent hand quilting on that first scroll frame; a compact and easily stored beauty with cherrywood ends and pine rods.
As machine quilting became more and more popular, John, the engineer, was intrigued by the idea of making a no-baste scroll frame to use on a home sewing machine. Proto types came and went and, after many versions and hours spent trying the frame, success! The first Flynn Multi-Frame was introduced at Spring Quilt Market in Minneapolis in 1996 and was granted a U.S. Patent in 1999. Thousands and thousands have been sold; to quilters all over the world.
Here are some of the features of this unique frame:
