Tenant Profile – Capricorn Quilting

Capricorn Quilting is an award-winning Longarm Quilting Service, offering a  friendly personal service in a dedicated studio at SOAR Works.

Business owner Lynda Jackson is the UK HandiQuilter Ambassador and Educator. As well as quilting for customers she also provides both class-based and personal one-to-one training on the longarm machine.

 “I have been sewing and crafting for most of my life and in 2012 quilting became my main passion,” said Lynda.

“In 2014 I established the business with one HandiQuilter longarm machine. After a couple of years I moved into a bigger studio and have since added a second machine.

“I am proud to say that I am UK Ambassador for HandiQuilter and also the UK Educator for them, working closely with the machine suppliers Pinhole Quilting.

“I hold a number of lessons a year both in my studio and together with Pinhole I also hold private longarm classes both in my studio or at the customer address if this is required.”

 Lynda has won a number of awards, all of which can be seen proudly displayed in her studio at SOAR Works. They include Best Longarm Quilting, 1st Bed Quilt, 1st Machine Embroidery,  Best of Show, Visitors’ Choice and Honourable Mention in the World Quilts Competition.

“Quilting is not just a business to me, it is a passion,” she added. “Seeing the smiles spread across a customer’s face when they collect their quilts is such a thrill and gives me such a buzz.”
