Jenn lives in Iowa with her wonderful husband, Charlie, and her two adorable cats, Riley and Clara (who think they will starve to death when they miss one of three scheduled feedings).
She has been in love with arts and crafts the day she found crayons and a coloring book; knew she would be a writer when she was in third grade; and had no idea she would become a lifelong nerd the day her dad brought home a magical box called a “computer.”
Jenn has been around a sewing machine most of her life, watching her mom sew new clothes for school and special occasions and sewing replacement buttons by hand on her dad's shirts. Sometime in her twenties, she bought a sewing machine after realizing she could probably hem her own pants instead of paying someone else and completely believing she could sew a patchwork quilt. With some time and research, she figured out how to alter her clothes and completed her first patchwork quilt in two to three years.
