    An afternoon with Jenny Doan

    My hometown, Portland Oregon is hosting quilt market this weekend. This is for shop owners, merchants, sellers etc. Jenny Doan and her husband were in town for market. Our local sewing machine center and fabric store (Fabric Depot) sponsored a "workshop" with her this afternoon. It was such great fun. She is a gem! She was informative, filled with ideas and short cuts and very enthusiastic. Her husband is "shy" but the two of them are a great show. Her youtube tutes are super but in person, she's a rock star! (I got her autograph!) She was talking about the projects (17) in her summer magazine. There's going to be a new fall one coming out in July.
    I just want to make you jealous if you weren't in the group and encourage you to go see her if ou ever get the chance. She's a super quilter and a great story teller too.
    No, I am not related to her (I wish I was!) or part of her promotion crew. I just had a great afternoon!

    How super fun! I love her you tube videos. I watched the impromptu video which was a q&a and her personality really came out. Jenny rocks!

    How great for you! She is one of the "Quilt World" personalities I would love to meet. I really enjoyed her Q&A video on U tube hope they do it again. Love her tutorials.

    I get to see her too! She is coming to Quilts n' Bloom in Haubstadt, Indiana, in two weeks. My friend and I were some of the first to sign up. Really looking forward to it. Even cutting vacation short so I would not miss it. Now that is setting your priorities straight, isn't it!

    I had to be in Missouri in early January. I was going to go right by her shop and had a morning free. I really enjoyed meeting Jenny, and you're right, she is great in person. I spent a hour or so just talking with her.

    One of the people on my list of "love to have lunch with". Actually, she is probably at the top. She looks so personable and warm. Love her videos.

    Well, I'm green with envy! Her tutorials on YouTube are the only ones I watch; the others seem so boring in comparison.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I met her last summer when she had a shop hop starting in MO and going to Iowa. She did not do the bus tour with us but she waved us off with a clown's red wig. Yes, she is a darling lady, very gracious. Definitely a rising star !
