About the Instructor

Never one to back down from a challenge, it took Gail over 25years to finish her first quilt. She took a day long quilting class back in the 80’s and left the class frustrated, broke and with an unfinished quilt top and no real support to finish it. Flash forward 25 years, and Gail decided to try enter the world of quilting again. She purchased a kitted wall hanging and hasn’t looked back!

Her love for longarming started almost immediately. She finished a quilt top and rented time on a Handi Quilter from her local shop. She knew right then and there, that this was what she wanted to do. She purchased her first Handi Quilter with Pro-Stitcher™ and immediately set to work finishing quilts for herself and others.

Now Gail shares her passion for quilting with students from around the world, she has taught in Australia and Europe, as well as across much of Canada and the USA. She currently uses both HQ Capri™ and HQ Amara™ with Pro-Stitcher Premium, and she creates designs with Pro-Stitcher Designer, and embraces both computerized and free motion quilting.
