Quilting Is A Contact Sport! is a sometimes humorous look at how quilting effects our lives and relationships. The presentation includes a trunk show of award-winning garments and quilts.
Notes from Jenny ...
Joyfully teaching the art of quilting has been my passion since 2006. My classes are encouraging, supportive, and light-hearted. I love seeing my students realize that they CAN quilt their own work. My teaching takes me to various guilds, IQF Houston, Chicago, and throughout the U.S.
Since I was a little girl trying to make my own clothes, I have been working with fabric. I hail from a long line of traditional bed quilt makers, but I didn’t take a formal class in quilting until 1983. In 1999, I “re-entered” quilting and that one class unleashed a need to create that has not stopped.
I use my domestic sewing machine to create art quilts and wearable art. My work has been juried into the Houston International Quilt Festival, Pacific International Quilt Festival, AQS in Paducah, the Curitiba Quilt Show in Brazil, and has shown in several art galleries as well as SAQA exhibits. Some of my work is held by private collectors.
My oh-so-patient hubby, our Basset boy, and I live in Northern California. Our two grown sons have left the nest to become men, leaving more room for books, fabric and notions.

Message from Jenny: If you have some free motion experience and want to learn more free motion fills, then join me and learn how to select and quilt fills and frills. Together, we’ll build on the skills that you already have and learn a variety of fills and frilly motifs to add to your projects. Most motifs will be free hand; a few will use marked reference points. Let’s play!
