Raised in Tennessee, Cynthia Gill filled the walls of her childhood home with cross stitched projects. She learned to sew watching her grandmothers make clothes for her and her sisters. As a newlywed in Kansas, she made her first quilt without a pattern over 30 years ago. It was a jar
quilt featuring bugs and it was quilted in the ditch on her home machine. It is still a family favorite. She started quilting again in Nebraska. As a Nebraska Extension Educator, she taught beginning sewing and quilting to 4-H’ers. Along with her daughters, she pieced several quilt tops. When she and her husband, James, moved to Maryland in 2018, she took her first long arm class. She was immediately hooked!
A proud owner of a HQ Forte® with Pro-Stitcher®, Cynthia began teaching longarm and Pro-Stitcher classes at her local shop. She enjoys one-on-one instruction with new machine owners. She loves sharing her enthusiasm for completing projects on a longarm with others and looks for new projects to complete on her longarm.
She enjoys traveling to quilt shops and getting to know new friends and sharing her love for quilts and her techniques for free motion, ruler work, and Pro-Stitcher. Cynthia lives in Maryland with her incredibly supportive husband. They enjoy traveling in their Piper Cherokee 6. She has two daughters and one son-in-law.
