She has over twenty million stitches to show for it! She presently quilts with an HQ Infinity? with Pro-Stitcher?. She comes from a long line of teachers and teaches machine quilting on both longarm and domestic machines. Gina has had quilts entered at Road to California, has received blue ribbons at county fairs and has been honored to be the featured quilter for one of her guild?s shows. She most enjoys making quilts of comfort for charities and gifts for family and friends. Gina currently belongs to three quilt guilds in Southern California where she lives with her husband.
