Marlene began knitting/crocheting/sewing for her 2 daughters (Nicole & Amee) in the early 80's. She found an interest in patchwork and quilting in the early 90's when attending a sampler patchwork and quilting craft class. This is where her love for quilting began.

After years of time consuming hand quilting and struggling with large quilts on a domestic sewing machine, the decision to purchase an American Professional Quilting System was made by Marlene and her husband Shane, and early in 2004, Redgate Quilting was formed.

Why the name RedGate Quilting?

Marlene works out of the small central Victorian country town of Alexandra. Alexandra was formerly known as Red Gate. Marlene has a keen interest in the history of Alexandra, hence the name RedGate Quilting.
