Our July speaker was Jessica VanDenburgh, owner of Sew Many Creations.  Jessica's enthusiasm and her entertaining as well as educational presentation was a big hit with our members.

Jessica's business   began as a custom bag business in 2007 after much encouragement from friends and family.  In 2011, the company developed into a bag pattern business geared towards quilters.  After much frustration with the bag & accessory patterns that were available (mostly written for seamstresses), she decided to create a line of easy to make, beginner friendly patterns that quilters could understand.  They use the same tools and language that quilters use.  In 2013, quilt patterns were added as well.  Her patterns are easy, beginner friendly and many of them use pre-cut fabrics such as jelly rolls, layer cakes and fat quarters.
