Janette Fairer – (Patchwork)

  • Founder member of Furness Shoreline Quilters a quarter of a century ago
  • Very experienced teacher of patchwork
  • Enjoys the sharing of her craft with like-minded people

Janette runs regular courses for Patchwork Quilting (usually Oct, Mar and May) plus our Summer Quilter’s Retreat, now Jenny Almond has retired.

We have found that many of you like to simply come and work on your own projects – and that is fine as well. Janette is happy to advise on whatever you are working on. She picks a theme for courses to simply offer a context for those wishing to have a challenge, but you are equally welcome to work on your own things.
