Janneke van der Ree Trunk Show

 Janneke's Bio: Janneke is my name. A very Dutch name because I was born in the Netherlands. I was a typical Dutch craftsy child who always wanted to become a teacher. I graduated with a specialty in textile arts and drawing. After only a few years of teaching I moved to England with my Dutch husband and took sewing classes to get to know people. There I discovered that sewing (clothes) was not for me, but loved the fellow artists and the socializing. For that reason I took up quilting when I moved to the USA. Having learned all the basics from the traditional Pennsylvanian and Lancaster quilters, I try to combine their craftsmanship with my Dutch whimsical craft sense. Not getting rid of the teacher in me I love to teach children to quilt and express themselves thru the arts. I try to learn new techniques and ways of making joyful pieces of fabric art.
