Janet has been a long time member of the Vancouver Quilters’ Guild. She has been sewing garments since about the age of 13, starting on a treadle and ever so happy to finally have access to an electric machine a few years later. Her mom and grandma were always sewing and quilting. She grew up sleeping under many scrap quilts made from old clothing. Attending a quilt show at St. Mary’s Anglican Church in about 1998 sparked an interest in quilting. Her interests are varied, and range from hand appliqué, to paper piecing, to new techniques, to workshops, to traditional and modern quilts.
