Gammill is pleased to welcome Quarryburn Quilting in New Zealand to its network of professional dealers. Quarryburn will provide sales, service and supplies to customers.
The realization of a long-held ambition, Lesley’s purchase of a fully computerized Statler by Gammill quilting machine in 2006 quickly tapped into a need, and business took off, resulting in the purchase of a second machine in 2008.
Quilting is a passion for Lesley, who has been sewing since she was a child. “My mother and grandmothers taught me to sew and knit, and I made clothing for both myself and my four children, as well as dabbling in many needlework crafts over the years.”
Lesley taught herself to quilt by reading magazines and watching “simply quilts” with Alex Andersen, and because she knows just how much effort goes into producing a single quilt recognizes the privilege and responsibility of being trusted with such precious work.
Lesley is the winner of several blue ribbons for quilts completed in her spare time, taking Excellence in Machine Quilting at the New Zealand Quilt Symposium in 2011, and having two quilts accepted for the World Quilt Show in 2010.
