April’s Meeting Features Susan J. Jensen

Spring has arrived! But if you are anything like me you are completely unable to predict what the weather is going to do. Torrential rain today – beautiful clear skies tomorrow – followed by blustery winds the next day. Really, it is just best to plan to quilt – very weather friendly.

This month our guest speaker is Susan J. Jensen, the British Columbia designer of Quilted Escapes. Susan’s patterns combine a variety of techniques from beading, stitchery, wool appliqué and foundation paper piecing that gives a romantic feel to her quilt designs. Susan loves surface design and teaches classes in her techniques.

Susan designs for Northcott Fabric, RJR, and Trend-tex and has been featured in “The Canadian Quilter” and “A Needle Pulling Thread” and Electric Quilt and now on the editorial team of the first national Canadian quilt magazine “Quilter’s Connection”. Through her exposure at International Quilt Lions Gate Quilters Guild Page 2 of 10 market her patterns can be found in quilt shops from the coast to coast in Canada, United States and England. You can find her at “A Great Notion” Quilt Shop a few days a week, if she is not in her studio, as well as traveling teaching at quilt shops quilt guilds, retreats and consumer shows. With a wonderful sense of humour, the love of quilting, chocolate and meeting new friends, Sue hopes to inspire us to be the creative people we truly are! I am quite looking forward to meeting Susan and absorbing her magic.

I was amazed at our Show and Tell last month. The TGIF’s are coming in fast and furiously. Good thing to because you only have our April and May meetings to show your finished projects.

See you at our April meeting.
