Janet Locey loves quilts from the 1900’s era and has seriously been pursueing the hobby for about 30 years. Janet teaches quilting and rug weaving, hosts quilting retreats, and designs patterns. In addition, she and John, her husband of 45 years, have an internet business called Hen Scratch Quilting which features her patterns as well as John’s line of Featherweight supplies, rug looms, and their award winning Goat Milk Soaps and Lotions.
The first of 11 children, Janet grew up on a farm in the Sacramento Valley. With her two sisters, her mother taught her to sew at the kitchen table as part of the 4-H program.
The Locey's enjoy life on their small Bell Hill Farm in the rolling hills outside of Hollister and share it with chickens, ducks, dairy goats, sheep, dogs, and cats.

Our next Guild workshop, called PLAIDVILLE HOUSES with stimulating instructor Mary Lou Weidman, is scheduled at the Sally Griffin Center in Pacific Grove on June 30 & July 1.
Mary Lou loves to show quilters how to stray from the norm and how to have passion that overrides criticism. For her, it's about the journey and seeing what she can do next.
In addition to quilting for most of her life, Mary Lou has written 5 books, owns a pattern company, has designed fabric for 14 years, represents Bernina, and has taught all across the U.S., Canada, and in eight countries.
Sign ups open March 5 for this fun and inspiring workshop with another great instructor. Please contact me to sign up, or if you have any questions.
