Janet is the founder of Sleeping Bear Crafts based in 
West Sussex in the UK.

Janet has been quilting for a number of years now. She was intoduced to quilting by her stepmother, Sheila Braund. At first, like many people, she was a bit daunted by how complicated it all looked. Realising that there were some very simple techniques that could be used to create stunning quilts, Janet soon got the bug.

Now Janet's and her husband Alistair's lives revolve around quilting.
Twice a year Janet runs Quilting Holiday Retreats in Umbria, Italy, also many classes in Mid-Sussex on a wide variety of Patchwork & Quilting Techniques.
The emphasis is always that sewing should be FUN but PRACTICAL!

Janet already has her own series of Patchwork Quilting Techniques DVD Videos , and when she and Alistair can find time there are many more on the way.
