GIUSEPPE RIBAUDO, AKA GIUCY GIUCE
Giuseppe Ribaudo (aka Giucy Giuce) grew up in Long Island, NY. First generation Sicilian-American on his dad’s side and second on his mom’s, his family lived on the bottom floor of his maternal grandparents’ house. His grandmother is a talented and prolific seamstress who taught him to sew at an early age, though it wasn’t until he was in college that he discovered quilting. Giuseppe joined Instagram, shortly thereafter and quickly found himself making long distance friends in the quilting community via social media.
After having bounced around the country for about a decade Giuseppe moved back New York to pursue a career in textiles. Within a few months of being in NYC he was offered a marketing position at Andover Fabrics and was promoted to multimedia manager a year later. In 2018, he turned his focus to fabric design and released his first collection Quantum. In 2021 he released his tenth collection called Nonna, an homage to his grandmother and her home where he learned to sew. Nonna led Giuseppe to an Italian holiday collection to be released in summer of 2023 called Natale.
Giuseppe currently resides in Portland, Maine where he continues to design fabric and patterns and teach quilting classes.
