We shine the spotlight on Janome Canada Artisan: Jeannie Jenkins

INTRODUCING JANOME ARTISAN, Jeannie Jenkins who lives in Ontario, Canada and sews on our Janome 1600P .

Jeannie learned to sew when she was 7 years old and began making her own clothes at age 10. Sewing has always been part of her life. After a year in a Fashion Design program, she changed direction slightly and took 3 years at O.C.A.D. graduating in 1982 with a design degree. She has been teaching quilting for more than 25 years and speaks at Quilting Guilds all over Southern Ontario hoping to inspire and encourage both beginner and more advanced quilters. She is a long arm quilter and does custom quilting for customers.   Jeannie reckons if she could sew all day she would be a very happy girl!

Jeannie used her Janome 1600P to contribute this charming picnic game set to the projects that may be found in our  Cross Canada Picnic Look Book. 

Jeannie Jenkins, Janome Canada Artisan,  made this delightful outdoors/picnic checker board complete with little zipper baggie and button style checkers.

Jeannie offers us detailed instructions of how to make this Checkerboard set on this link which may also be found on the www.janomemaker.com website. Thank you, Jeannie!

We look forward to further projects and expertise from Jeannie.
