Susan Jungerheld has been a professional machine quilter since purchasing her first

longarm machine, a HQ Sixteen in 2008. When Handi Quilter introduced the HQ

Fusion Susan knew it was the machine for her. Since then, she has added the HQ

Pro-Stitcher and purchased an HQ Sweet Sixteen. She loves free-motion and ruler-

assisted quilting on both stand up and sit down machines and enjoys combining

freehand and computerized quilting.

 

Susan has been sewing her whole life and began teaching sewing, piecing and quilting

in local quilt shops. She is thrilled to share her knowledge and experience with quilters

everywhere as a Handi Quilter Educator. Since 2013, she has taught in many Handi

Quilter Retail shops in the United States and in Germany, South Africa, and Dubai, UAE.

Susan has also been a classroom educator with the Original Sewing & Quilt Expo.

An award winning quilter, Susan has experience quilting for local quilt shops, customers,

and charities. Her quilting has been featured in McCall’s Heritage Quilts made Modern

and Quilt Trends magazines.

 

Before working professionally in the quilting industry, Susan received her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and worked in counseling, education, and customer service. Originally from Pennsylvania, she has lived in several other states, Germany, and Ireland. She and her husband reside in New York state and have adult children.
