The teacher

Patricia Bussemeier lives in Göttingen, Germany and is working as a Handi Quilter Educator. When she studied Biology in Göttingen in the eighties, she sewed clothes and her first quilt.
She began teaching machine quilting in the nineties. Her big dream to own a Longarm Quilting Machine came true, when she started working as a Handi Quilter educator to help with the release of their first longarm machines in Germany in 2010.
Patricia assisted in many longarm classes held by well-known longarm quilters from the USA and Europe. She teaches longarm quilting classes and trains new longarm machine owners on their machines.
She is looking forward to share her knowledge with her students.
