Jen started sewing in 1993 on an old, tan Singer sewing machine. Her mother taught the basics. Jen made her first quilt in 1993. She didn’t use any books or templates, and that poor quilt eventually fell apart. It was recycled, though, into a curtain, duct taped over a dorm room window.
Fast forward a bit: Jen earned a Bachelor of Science in Apparel Design in 1998 from Louisiana State University. By 2003, she found herself quilting and sewing for her own company, ReannaLily Designs. During that time, Jen also taught quilting at a national crafting store. The website and company was launched in 2007.
Jen Eskridge is the author of five books. The most recent being Free-Motion Framework with C & TPublishing.
We're super excited to have Jen as part of the Sew Special Quilts team - full time! She's taught several classes at the store.
She's done an amazing job getting the room ready, learning the three quilting machines, and has already quilted several quilts for both customers and charities.
