Who We Are
At JANDA Bend Quilts we are dedicated to helping others enjoy the art of quilting. We do this by teaching quilting skills, designing quilt patterns, and supporting a community of quilters.
We provide workshops and presentations for quilting guilds, quilt shops, and other groups and venues. The workshops feature Quilt in a Day patterns and techniques. April is a Quilt in a Day certified teacher. As we design quilt patterns, workshops will be available to teach those patterns as well.
Our quilt designs focus on fun and strive to look at quilting from a traditional/modern point of view. Every effort is made to write clear instructions and to design quilts that use modern techniques. The designs will be available as pdf downloads initially. We hope come back often to see our progress.
In 1999, my husband Jerry and I moved to Oklahoma. He retired from the oil industry, and I started a new career as a college professor. We were both pursuing our dreams. While I was working at the university, Jerry began JANDA Bend Christmas Trees, which is a choose and cut Christmas tree farm. I helped him sell trees during the Christmas season and made ornaments and fresh wreaths to sell in the shop.
Seventeen years later, I retired from the university and began JANDA Bend Quilts. This business integrates my love of quilting, my love of teaching, and my desire to help make the world a better place. It is a new adventure.
I hope that you will join our quilting community. You have taken the first step by coming to our website. We hope you visit often and subscribe to our newsletter, so that you will be able to participate in this new adventure.
