About Gina Burgess

Gina Burgess

Gina Burgess is well known to South Australian quilters as a teacher and an active member of the Quilters Guild of South Australia. She started teaching beginners from her home studio in 1996 giving her a thorough grounding in the basics of traditional patchwork and quilting. As her enthusiasm for the craft developed, it soon became clear that her first love lay in machine appliqué and quilting and this is now reflected in her work. So began her interest in realistic stained glass designs interpreted in fabric.

Gina now teaches regularly in metropolitan Adelaide as well as travelling further afield in South Australia and interstate (eg Toowoomba Quiltfest, Hawkesbury Quilt Camp, Waverley Symposium, Quilt Encounter SA, Patching by the Port, Esperance WA and Misty Mountain Getaway, Dorrigo NSW). Each week she teaches an extremely enthusiastic and talented group of women known as "The Gallery Quilters" at the Port Noarlunga Arts Centre.

Gina has worked on the QGSA Exhibition Committee many times and is a member of the SA Valuation and Judging Panels.

She lives in the beautiful seaside town of Port Noarlunga with her husband and has two grown up children.
