Jenny K. Lyon

Author, Teacher, Encourager, Artist

Jenny quilts and creates from her home studio in Northern California and travels the country to teach and lecture on free motion quilting. She loves to inspire and instruct her students to quilt their own quilts their own way. She calls herself “The Quiltskipper” because the joy of creating quilts sometimes just has to be expressed in a quick and silly skip around the house! She has appeared on The Quilt Show and Quilting Arts TV and her work has juried into galleries, shows and international exhibits. She writes both a blog and newsletter weekly to share her joy.

Why We Love Jenny!

Trust an Industry Professional

I had the pleasure of taking Jenny's Yes You CAN Free Motion Quilt class. Whether you are brand new to machine quilting or a "seasoned"  quilter Jenny brings so much to the table. It was a class packed with valuable information that every quilter can use for their quilting tool belt. I strongly recommend this class knowing how it will enhance your quilting experience.

Happy Student

Jenny describes herself as Teacher, Author, Encourager and Artist and she could not be more on point. She is an outstanding teacher -- patient, clear and knowledgeable. She points out mistakes she has made which makes her human and an even more effective teacher.  She is a coach, champion and encourager and keeps you going. I had never done any free motion quilting before [the class] and with Jenny's teaching and encouragement, I am ready to give it a try. I can not recommend her highly enough. If you have a chance to take a workshop with Jenny, do it.
