Jennifer Thompson - Longarm Quilting Instructor

Jennifer is a quilter, designer and artist with a background in dance and choreograpy.

Her interest in the arts started in Montessori School as a child. She attended Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Dallas, Texas. After that she received a BFA in dance from Stephens College. She has worked with several artists and dancers in Chicago including Rachel Thorne Germond Dance Company from 2005-2014.

Although she is new-ish to sewing, there has always been a strong interest her entire life from learning the basics from her grandmother. The part of quilting she loves the most is playing with color contrast, and incorporating bugs, animals, trees with a splash of oddities in her design.

She began refining her sewing technique here at The Sewing Labs in 2020. She completed the Sewing Salon Program and Industrial Sewing, and has been a longarm training instructor at TSL on the Gammill Machines, and training on custom quilting as well.
