We were so lucky to have you be our first in-person speaker. Your experience was evident and your ease on the stage was so refreshing. Everyone talked about the great energy in the room. Your gorgeous quilts were definitely a delight to see in-person.
A big Thank You for your awesome presentation,
Mariette, Royal City Quilt Guild

I wanted to commend you on how well your "trunk show" seamlessly worked in a lot of valuable information about value, contrast, colour, improvisation, texture etc - you were teaching very well, even though some of the quilters in the audience may not have realized they were being taught - well done!

From all the comments we heard at our table alone you wowed them!  Throughout the night everyone learned so much and the tips you shared about bindings in different colours, how odd colours can work, the corner hangers and sleeves on both ends, your sense of humour and your fabulous array of your quilts just made a fabulous presentation.  As I was leaving folks were still chatting about what a great speaker you were!

I am a retired adult education instructor and I know great teaching when I see it!! Jen is patient, welcoming, relaxed, knowledgeable and super organized. She demos everything, shares many examples of each step in the project process, answers questions thoroughly. She happily shares her unique creations and her love of art and quilting.  All skill levels are made to feel welcome and she has many free tutorials for those who are interested. I look forward to taking another online class.

Jen presented her Improv Quilting workshop to members from our Guild in 2 half day sessions in November. She provided excellent instruction and live demonstrations for her techniques, and slides of her finished pieces to inspire us. She also supplemented this with extensive PDF handouts.

Jen was a relaxed and entertaining presenter, who made us feel very comfortable to try out new skills and ask questions. She has a good mastery of the technology needed to make a virtual workshop successful.

After the first session, she encouraged everyone to upload photos of their backgrounds and then we were able to see what our classmates had done, providing further inspiration.  I learned a lot during these two half days and have saved her PDFs for future reference. I  enjoyed this experience immensely, and would encourage other guilds  to sign up for this. Improv was not at all scar!
