Hi. My name is Jen Alexander. I’m a professional machine quilter and longarm quilting machine dealer for A1 Quilting Machines. My love for quilting started at a young age. My Grandma made quilts for her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. There were many times as a child I would find myself in a circle of wonderful woman quilting my grandmother’s latest creation. What a wonderful legacy I received from her. It’s no wonder when I saw the opportunity to help others finish there own beautiful creations I grabbed the chance.
I purchased an A-1 Elite Long-arm sewing machine in 2004. It was beautiful. My excitement must have filled the house, because my husband started setting it up my machine a week before my dealer was supposed to get here. I learned so much the day she trained me. And I haven’t stopped learning since. I’ve attended Machine quilting shows every year, taking classes from world renowned machine quilters. I also teach a machine maintenance class to help anyone that wants to understand there longarm better.
The best part of my Job is seeing my customer’s faces when they see their finished quilts. Every reaction is different, from a spontaneous hug, a thank you or a little note dropped in the mail. Every reaction warms my heart and confirms why I choose to help others finish their quilts.
I became part of the A1 quilting Machines team in 2006. I sell the A1 Elite quilting machines, set them up and train new users in their own home. How nice it is that they don't have to worry about what piece goes where.
I am married to a wonderful husband JC who is very supportive and helps with machine set ups. We have three beautiful children. Take a look around my site and let me know if you have any questions.
