About jenn

I am a wife, mother of 2 girls, 3 dogs, 1 cat and with all the craziness of life I seem to relish the simple things. The calm and cozy I crave are often found in the simplest way of life.  My family, garden and home bring me great  happiness.  Oh yeah, I like to craft for my sanity.   This is a great way to document a part of the life we lead here in Memphis, TN~

  1. I am looking for a store that carries smocking and heirloom sewing supplies in Memphis. We moved here and so far I have not found one. I did find your website, so am asking if you know of a store here locally.

    Thank you,

    Charlotte

    • There are two stores near memphis, Lace Cottage around Germantown area they have a website just search and i really recommed the Frayed Knot at Lakeland the owner Cheryl Davison is a pleasure to meet and a joy to be with. I love shopping and taking classes there which have very convient hours and she will help you with any project you may have questions about, even if you didn’t buy from her.. The shop is in the back of her house and she has taught at Martha pullen and has regular items in her catalog Sew Beautiful..

  2. Hi Jenn

    did charlotte ever find the store she was looking for? I used to work for The Fabric Source in Jackson, TN, they carry heirloom smocking and sewing supplies. They are an hour away from Cordova, not far from the interstate. Email me if you have questions.

    Would you contact me at the email address above. I am starting a memorial quilt for Americans killed by illegal aliens. We intend to take the quilt to Washington DC on September 12, 2010 hopefully with 99 panels sewn together. My deadline for the panels is July 31st. I will then assemble all panels into a memorial quilt. Target size of this year’s quilt is 18′ by 99′ (3’x6′ panels)

    Our website is under construction (we will have 2 sites: TheRemembranceProject.org and Stolenlivesquilt.org). They will be up on about a week.

    My phone number is 281-236-7580.

    Thank you.

  7. Hallo,
    my name is Marta. I have just started to write my blog. I find yours by Ginny’s Yarn Along. She does not want any comments now so I wanted to ask you how do the bottoms work? What should I do to get one. Do I just have to copy the text below them? It does not work….sorry but I am so new….
    The other question is….how are you doing your doll? Where did you find a pattern? I am also doing one. I am not sure how to make legs and arms….I do mine with Freya Jaffke book. How did you do your head?
    So many questions…..
    Best wishes,
    Marta
