Linda Gosselin has been piecing quilts since the American Bicentennial quilt revival of 1976. In 2002, she pieced a scrappy triple Irish chain quilt and took it to a longarm quilter at a local quilt shop. Seeing what the longarm system could do, she wanted to own a system herself! She bought a used HQ Sixteen® in 2005, added Pro-Stitcher® in 2007, and then upgraded to a new HQ Fusion® with Pro-Stitcher in 2010. In addition, her studio now also includes a new HQ Avanté® with Pro-Stitcher and an HQ Sweet Sixteen®.
Having a background as an IT professional, Linda easily combines her love of Pro-Stitcher and Art & Stitch. She loves to “wow” her customers by showing them a digital image of their own quilts on her computer in order to audition quilting designs before they leave her studio.
A certified Art & Stitch instructor, Linda teaches on line classes for both Art & Stitch and Pro-Stitcher using Simulator. She quilts for customers, Quilts of Valor and for charity, and teaches quilting classes at local quilt shops. Samples of her work can be seen at www.TheQuiltersHelpdesk.com
Linda lives with her husband in central Massachusetts. She has two married daughters, twin grandsons born on the Fourth of July, and one granddaughter.
