Instructor: Gina Siembieda
Instructor Bio: Gina started sewing at age 12 when her Grandmother gave her a sewing machine. It was love at first stitch and she has been sewing ever since. Her love of quilting was born in 1985 when she bought her first hand-quilted Amish quilt in Lancaster PA. Soon after, she joined a quilt guild, learned to quilt and began teaching others! Having purchased her first longarm quilting machine in 2003, Gina has years of experience on a variety of different brands and sizes of machines; but Handi Quilter is her favorite. 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. She has two grown children, which, of course, are her proudest achievements! She is excited to be part of the wonderful Handi Quilter team and to share her passion of quilting and educating others.
