Pat Sloan American Patchwork and Quilting radio Janneken Smucker guest


I had the opportunity to hear Quilt Alliance board member Janneken Smucker give a talk this summer and was blown away. Everything she said spoke to everything I love about quilt making. Janneken a college history professor who also has studied at the Quilt Study Center in Lincoln Nebraska and has a masters from that program. She comes from a long line of quilters and is passionate about the quilt makers. That is what connected to me. We both love the story. She has a new book out called "Amish Quilts crafting an American Icon"
