    Jenny is our inspiration!

    After reading so many posts about people watching Jenny's tutorials and becoming inspired, I just wondered...
    How many of us actually started quilting after watching her? I know I did. It's amazing but I think there may be thousands of people all over the world who love her and who else does such awesome free videos?

    I did. I have sewn for years but never quilted. I was looking for a new hobby and stumbled upon Jenny's tutorials. She made it seem so doable from the beginning. However, because of Jenny I now own three sewing machines and more fabric than I can use but having sooo much fun.

      I had been quilting just a few months when I found Jenny's tutorials. She is the cause of my addiction though! Love everything about M* and Jenny!

        Been sewing a long time - never thought I would be a quilter - Jenny's tutes showed me that I could do it and enjoy it

          I did. I have always wanted to learn, but have never taken classes. I watched Jenny's tuts and then bought a machine and started sewing!

            I had been quilting for years when I first found Jenny and her tutorials. I was looking for a new pattern and a simple way to do it. She played a major part in renewing the spirit of quilting for me though. I watched her tuts for months before I stumbled o this place. This place felt like a home I had not been to in years. Great friends and wonderful inspiration. So yeah, Jenny was the inspiration that lead me to a place I needed. BTW, she is just as wonderful in person. Like a next door neighbor. (a good one, lol)

              Jenny's tutorials got me started also. My mom quilted but always made it look so complicated and difficult so I never tried it until now. Jenny made it look easy enough for me to at least try.

                I have been a self taught sewer. Made a small quilt to use as a floor covering for grandaughter. Was hypnotized by all the quilts I found on the web and was completely intimidated until I met Jenny and she demonstrated how easy those difficult quilts were. I have been watching her tutes ever since.

                  yep...if it wasn't for her I wouldn't be quilting at all. She made me feel like it was all doable. And of course everyone on this forum has been amazing. I would probably have no hair on my head if I hadn't found you all. But yes, Jenny is the sole reason I can honestly call myself a step above a beginner quilter! Thanks Jenny!! xoxox

                        Her videos gave me the confidence to really sit down and try piecing blocks. I also got serious about getting a real sewing machine, and give sewing a real chance instead of just wishing and hoping.

                          Jenny has certainly inspired me to try new things and get an enormous amount of pleasure and satisfaction from creating quilts. I now run a U3A quilt group and of course I tell all the members of the group about Jenny and her tutorials.

                              I had been making quilts for 20 years before I found Jenny when looking for fabrics to finish a quilt I had started for my son. I was attracted to her quick easy big results style of making quilts. I've been using her tutorials and style since to make quilts for my family.
