Introducing Jane McGrath to WHQ

From Loani I met Jane when she came to my house for a tea cosy workshop or two and then again at Sturt Winter School (she'd taken the basket making class next door). Jane hails from Griffith and moved to our beautiful part of the world in January this year. Serendipitously, I met Jane again at our "Life in Patches" exhibition and invited her to join us at Wallace House. She spent just two Tuesdays with us BC (Before Covid19)

Jane is retired from teaching. She taught fashion and textiles at TAFE and for a short time at high school. Her most recent job was in tourism at VisitGriffith. Jane also taught patchwork privately in fabric shops for about 10 years.

From Jane Staying sane is a bit weird, isn’t it, at the moment?

We are both well, (my husband) Peter is going out for a walk each day. I prefer to stay home and I’ve been (reluctantly) getting on the exercise bike.

I have decided to get some unfinished projects out of the way. First off the rank was a granny square blanket that I gave to Keira, although I’m not sure rugs are all that warranted up here!

I’m working on some hand stitched panels now, just slow stitching while we watch the tv in the evenings, we have nearly got my sewing room organised and I’m still unpacking tubs. Can a girl have too much fabric or yarn? I don’t think so but Peter doesn’t agree with me!

Stay safe, I am really enjoying seeing what the ladies are doing,
