Dear Jane 25 Years Later

This new edition of Dear Jane has tested and updated patterns. It has never been easier to make your own Dear Jane quilt.

Perhaps you have seen some of the thousands of Dear Jane quilts on Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook and want to create your very own. Brenda always says, “Everyone comes to Jane in their own time.” Your time is now! Connect with the global community of Janiacs and get started on your own Dear Jane masterpiece today!

The book is due to arrive in October so place your orders now. This combo would be a great gift for the holidays!

Quick Easy Projects

These newest additions by Betty Gormick are sure to make you smile. And, talk about instant gratification – all of them can be made in an afternoon!

Boo To You Door Hanger

These three Cut Loose Press™ patterns require templates that are too big to fit on a traditional Cut Loose Press™ pattern, so we decided to try something new! The full-sized template sheets are accessed through a link included in the pattern. Since they are the right size, you can print them right onto a product like Print N Fuse (Wonder Under cut into 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheets so it can be run through a printer). No tracing is required!

These projects are great choices for classes or kits. Why not include the pattern, templates printed on Print N Fuse, and fabric in a kit. Just remember, you can only give them the templates if they purchase the pattern – talk about great customer service!
