    Re: Chanse to meet Jenny Doan at Houston quilt festival!

    I picked Jenny. The only problem I have with Eleanor is getting thru all the fluff in her videos, I have enough of a concentration problem without having all that interrupting fluff. She does have a personality and I can understand why people like her, she's great at interacting with her class but she's just not for me.

    As much as I love Jenny, I picked Mary. After I'd heard she has IBD and has been through similar health issues as I have, it was a natural choice. I use quilting to relax, unwind, and forget I'm "sick" a lot...

    I entered and picked Eleanor Burns. I've eaten a few times with Jenny and she's awesome. I think Eleanor is a hoot and doesn't take herself seriously, so she'd be fun to have dinner with and chat a bit too.

    We all know and love Jenny, and through this forum, Jenny would be the natural choice for this. But I've been with Eleanor Burns and she is a hoot! I love how she makes the complicated quilt patterns simple, and how she builds confidence through teaching simple steps toward a lofty goal. I made a triple Irish chain quilt last year and could not have done it without her tutorial and techniques. Her earlier tutorials feature her less enjoyable more strident voice quality but the more recent ones show her genuine warm and zany side and a much more relaxed voice. I did a BOM with her last year through a webinar and loved every session! So, voice aside, I am an Eleanor Burns supporter as well as I am to Jenny and Mary Fons.

    Would those of you who don't like Eleanor Burns please keep your comments to yourself? Her voice may be annoying to some or lots - then just leave it be and move on. There are those of us that think she is very nice and fun to be around. What's the saying? If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.
    Everyone is entitled to their opinion and asking someone not to state it is not how this forum works. There is also a huge difference in saying you don't like someone's voice and saying you don't like the person.

    Thanks, quiltingtrish, I agree with you. I happen to enjoy Eleanor Burns very much! Her quilts are beautiful, and I think her voice is warm and friendly!

    Glad I'm not alone on that. I watched one of Eleanor's log cabin block videos and by the third "Get rid of it" I shut it off.

    I think Elanor Burns is a few fries short of a Happy Meal.
