Jenny K. Lyon
Jenny uses her domestic sewing machine to create quilts, art quilts and wearable art. She has been sewing since she was a little girl, trying to make her own clothes. Jenny comes from a long line of traditional bed quilt makers but didn’t take a formal class until 1983. During the time she was raising her sons she did not quilt, but re-entered quilting in 1999. And now she just can’t stop!
Jenny’s book, Free Motion Quilting, Ordinary to Extraordinary with C&T is now available. She appeared on The Quilt Show in Feb, 2019 and her work has been featured in numerous magazines. She also appeared on QATV.
Her work has been juried into the Houston Int’l Quilt Festival, several AQS shows, Road to California, Pacific International Quilt Festival and the Curitiba Quilt Show (Brazil). Her work has shown in several art galleries and SAQA exhibits and some is held in private collections.
She has been teaching the art of quilting since 2006 and teaches across the country at guilds, shops and the Houston and AQS shows.
She lives in Granite Bay, Ca (outside of Sacramento) with her long-suffering husband. Her sons have left the nest which leaves more room for quilting stuff! Jenny is happy to share her passion for free motion quilting
