Teacher Biography - Ambassador Event 2022
Lynda Jackson, UK
Handi Quilter Ambassador
Lynda comes from a family where many are crafters and the ladies have always made things with their hands. Her Mother taught her to sew when she was young and she hasn't stopped since, be it dressmaking and tailoring or bag-making and quilting.
After 30 years serving the public in the Police Force, during which she continued her love of everything sewing related, she retired from the post and worked in a small fabric store which sold both dressmaking and quilting fabrics. One task there was to make the samples for display in the store and she soon became hooked on quilting and wanted to do more than just the basic required in the store. Lynda wanted to be creating those beautiful feathers and ruler work, and so began her freemotion quilting journey.
Lynda left the store and bought a HandiQuilter Avante. She fell in love with both the machine and the freedom of creative expression. She started her business Capricorn Quilting(.co.uk) in 2013 and shortly after in 2014 was asked to become the Educator for the UK Handi Quilter Distributor. The computerised quilting system Pro Stitcher was added to the Avante. A Handi Quilter Infinity was added in 2017 for hand-guided quilting.
Lynda says - "I love interacting with the students and seeing those ‘ah-ha’ moments, and how they progress and grow as a quilter, having confidence to try new techniques. I am admin for the HandiQuilter dedicated Facebook group called Longarm Learning Curve which was started to support UK and EU owners, but has now grown to included owners from across the world. This means I can continue to see students grow and become more confident.
I was proud to have been asked to be a UK HandiQuilter Educator and even more proud to have been asked to be a HandiQuilter Ambassador.
I have been fortunate enough to have won Best of Show and be placed in a number of competitions in the UK and in the World Quilts Show including Best in World in 2018. I love the challenge of creating something different for each one. Although I have the Pro Stitcher my heart will always be with free motion hand-guided quilting and creating something unique.”
