Handi Quilter Education Event - April 27 - 30

The Quilt Store is excited to be recognized as an "HQ Way" and "Top Sales" retailer in 2017 for the second year in a row!

Handi Quilter gives this award to retailers who provide superior education and support to their customers. They must carry a full line of machines, host events, participate in their local quilting communities and keep their team current on new products and technical training.

We are humbled by the honour, but at the same time, we see this as recognition for doing what we love to do everyday.  We are driven by the energy that you, our customers, bring through our front door every day.  Your desire to know more, pushes us to learn more and this is the most exciting part of coming to work at The Quilt Store every day.

We look forward to meeting new customers at our upcoming education event and introducing you to new and exciting techniques from Handi Quilter.

Get ready to have your socks knocked off!

Gina Siembieda, Handi Quilter National Educator is coming to The Quilt Store, April 27-30, 2018

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.
