Jan Soules has been quilting since 2000. She has never settled on one style, preferring to mix appliqué and pieced blocks using her sense of color and design to create her “treasures.”
Jan has lectured at several local guilds on the topic, Borders - From Basics to Beyond. She also teaches workshops at guilds and quilt shops, mainly on accurate piecing techniques. She completed a course in judging and wearable art sponsored by the West Coast Quilt Judging Academy in 2012. Jan is a member of the River City Quilt Guild.
Her accomplishments include Best of Show and Best Use of Color awards along with first place and judges’ choice ribbons. Jan has had three quilts in the AQS engagement calendars. She was part of a group The Fab 5 that won Best of Show in 2015 for View of Arles with Irises. Her quilts can be seen in books by Marcia Stein, Christine Barnes, and two AQS book.
Jan currently lives in Elk Grove with her husband, Gary. They are both passionate duplicate bridge players and enjoy traveling, especially to France. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jeanne Mills, Program
Meetings are generally held on the first Monday of every month at:
Pacific Grove Community Center Directions
515 Junipero Street (at 15th)
Pacific Grove, CA 93950
Social time begins at 6:30 p.m. and the meeting starts promptly at 7:00 p.m.
In this workshop, you'll learn how to make improvisational trees without a pattern. You will gain confidence in using your rotary cutter and ruler to create unique trees. We will begin with a simple tree trunk and gradually learn how to add limbs. You can make as few or as many as you want. It is your project, so it will be your decision. Step out of your comfort zone and try something new! All skill levels can do this, I promise!
