I know that my journey with Jane will help me to achieve my goals in quilting; I was so fortunate to spend two days in a workshop with the "Divine Ms Brenda Papadakis" at Quilts in the Barn. Brenda is a delightful story-teller and a meticulous quilter who spent hours tracing the blocks and then presenting them in a form which will enable more of us to join in with the Journey with Dear Jane. Brenda is a very generous lady who shared her knowledge with us as we worked our way through some of the more difficult blocks.
You can see the 6 blocks I made in the 2 days of classes and I really feel that, thanks to Brenda's help, I have a good chance of finishing this quilt, and even more importantly, of enjoying the process.
A further benefit of taking Brenda's workshops is that I have learned new skills which I can use when making other quilts. The lovely ladies I met at both of the two day workshops also added to my enjoyment of the process with like-minded ladies. It was lovely to see Ginny again from Colleambly too. Ginny please let me know your email address so we can stay in touch.
If you get a chance to take a workshop with Ms Brenda, make sure you make the most of the opportunity- you won't be disappointed as you will learn so much as well as have fun.
I'd better get off the computer and back to stitching. I think I can hear Jane calling me!
Hugs, Jan Mac
