Quiltfolk Virtual Show-and-Tell
Each month, Jenni Smith will feature talented makers from around the world, offering sneak peeks into their quilting projects. Episodes will be free to access on Quiltfolk.com so that you can watch them, and share them, as often as you’d like.
We hope to grow the scope of this program, reaching more people from around the globe who may be missing the show-and-tells they might typically find at their local guild meeting. If you enjoy this first episode, we would love for you to share the video with friends, provide feedback in the comment section, and subscribe to the Quiltfolk YouTube channel.
Show-and-Tell host Jenni Smith is an author, teacher, quilter, and dressmaking pattern designer with a busy studio in Yorkshire. She is also a longtime friend of Quiltfolk. Her dream is to inspire everyone to make Just One Quilt in their lifetime, and she encourages this through online workshops, engaging short films, and lectures. Jenni recently released her first book Quilting with Liberty Fabrics: 15 Quilts Celebrating 145 Years in Fabric.
