Maureen Ciemian


Maureen began quilting more than twenty years ago after receiving a sewing machine as a gift from her mother-in-law, the only person Maureen knew who sewed! That machine is long gone but the passion for fabric and quilting has stayed and grown. Maureen enjoyed the good fortune of living in Houston, TX at the time she learned to sew, and thus had the opportunity to learn from many great teachers at Quilt Festival. She is a Certified Sew Kind of Wonderful Instructor.

Maureen is a retired engineer whose love of all things mathematical and precise can be realized while quilting. She has won several ribbons for her work at shows in Texas, including three first-place ribbons in one-person categories.

Maureen and her husband moved from Houston to Lancaster County in 2015. They are frequently on the road traveling in their Airstream Travel Trailer, which has just enough space for a sewing machine and supplies! They regularly volunteer for months at a time with the National Park Service, usually at their favorite National Park- Bryce Canyon in Utah.
