Meet Jolene Knight, longarm quilter and owner of Good Knight Quilts! She's our featured business member for February, and is here to tell us about the wild world of professional quilting.
What makes your business special or different than others in your industry?
I pride myself on quality craftsmanship while still having a fast turnaround.
How long have you been doing this?
I’ve been a quilter since 2001, a free-motion quilter since 2006, and a longarm quilter since 2011. I started Good Knight Quilts in July of 2012.
What’s the most important thing you’ve had to learn to do your job well?
Communication with your customer to understand what they really want.
What do you see as a significant aesthetic trend right now?
Any new products or services you’d like to mention?
I have added some cream and white 118” backing fabrics.
Why do you like being a business member of PMQG?
If you couldn’t work in the quilting world, what would your dream job be?
It would be exactly what I’m doing but in a little shop with basic fabrics and a community room for sew-ins.
