Hi I’m Jayne, thats JaYne! I now called 40 something, married and have two children. We have two pets, a dog and a ragdoll cat.
My time is sewing time! So I squeeze in my crafting whenever I can. If only there were more hours in a day and fabric and $$ at my fingertips …. oh, I could achieve so much more!
I started patchworking around 10 years ago after visiting a work friend’s house and saw her quilts. I had tried my hands at lots of different crafts over the years, but it was fabric I was most passionate about. After visiting Kate’s house, it was like another world had opened up …. I had finally found what I wanted to do, ‘craft wise’.
I raced into a newsagent on the way home and bought every quilt magazine they had and scoured the pages. On the Monday I rang my closest shop, Primarily Patchwork in Mailing Rd, Canterbury… and I enrolled in a sampler class (that I’ve fnished) and I haven’t looked back!
I have made some wonderful friends over the years because of this craft, and now a group of us I bought together (Julie & Catherine quilty friends I made at Waverley Patchworkers, Debbie, Pam & Vikki now old work collegues, Megan a school mum friend and also Kylie (Julie’s sister) and Jenny (Pam’s friend) will go away this year for our 3rd visit to The Parsonage for our quilty weekend. If you happen to visit The Parsonage and you look at the visitors book, or see the blocks in the quilts or even photo’s, we’re the “Fat Quarter Collectors”.
