Meet Ginny

Ginny Radloff became the owner of Appletree Fabrics on February 1, 2017.  Before this she owned and operated Radical Quilts by Ginny Radloff. 

At the start of my Radical Quilts business in 2001, I purchased a Gammil longarm quilting machine. I took a training class with one of the best teachers Linda Taylor, who taught me that I could do this if I wanted.  I came home from the training and purchased my Gammil machine.   With the use of this machine I have the ability to quilt customer quilts, both edge-to-edge designs and also custom quilting. Recently, I have upgraded my machine to a Statler Stitcher. This machine has the capability to do special designs but still gives me the ability to do my own quilting style.

My interest and desire to create difficult, yet original quilts has given me the opportunity to work with Judy Niemeyer. (  Judy Niemeyer produces quilt patterns based on paper piecing. I made my first Judy Niemeyer quilt “4th of July” for a close friend and gave it to her for her birthday. That friend was Lois (now the former owner of Appletree Fabrics). In June 2011, I took a class from Judy herself and was hooked with her method of doing the quilts. It is well organized. I decided to apply to the Judy Niemeyer Teacher Certification Program in October
of 2011 and was accepted into the program.

Quiltworx Certified Instructor - In July 2012 I was officially certified to teach Judy’s patterns. Since June 2011, I have completed over 100+ of Judy’s quilts, and am working on more. I truly enjoy the process of quilting and teaching others. When I teach a class I love the excitement of the students when they finish their project. They often come in to the class saying I can’t do it… and leave saying "What is the next class you are teaching?".

Appletree Fabrics is a CERTIFIED SHOP for Judy Niemeyer patterns.  We have classes both beginner and advanced.  I also do Guild Trunk Shows/Lectures and workshops. If you are interested in having me teach or do a show, please contact me for more information.
