    Learn more about Jenny Kae:

    I am living the dream! I get to spend my days working with beautiful fabrics, beautiful designs and beautiful people. AND I get to share about something I love.

    I started working at a local quilt shop. Dream job! I was working with colors and fabrics and arrangements all day. Customers ask lots of quilting questions. I guess if you work in a quilt store, they expect you to know how to quilt, go figure. My manger said they needed someone to teach classes! Ohohoh! Pick me! Pick me!

    Then, my manager called me said this fabric company wanted me to film a couple videos showing how to use their fabric. I about fell over!  I thought "YesIWantTo!!!" Then I thought, "Be cool, Jenny, be cool!". I said in a very calm voice, "Yes, I would love to.".

    That is how I ended up here.
