Janet was very pleased to be our winner this month. I hope she enjoys her new book, and using our website in the coming months. Janet got married on the 28th September, so we wish her many congratulations, and I'm sure she must be having a good week!

Janet said, "First and foremost, many thanks for your email"

"As well as quilting, I also do dressmaking and crafts. If it is fabric I sew it! I prefer small quilts as they are easy to handle, plus I don't really have the space to store them and I can't use them on the bed as the two cats then think it is for them! I have a stand alone embroidery machine and this coming winter intend to do some quilts that incorporate embroidery in them."

"The website is great, it is a most wonderful source of information and news. It is also helpful to be able to access the old patterns without having to search through magazine after magazine (and waste a day getting sidetracked)."

"You may be interested to know that one of the two patchwork clubs I belong to have recently (well........in May, where has this year gone?) made the Sweet Sixteen Bag that featured in your Handbag special in 2012. I had made one of these bags for myself (November 2012 letters page under the name of Jan Young) and everyone wanted one for themselves. The number of different versions was wonderful."

Congratulations Janet! We hope you'll have fun here in our quilting community.
