Jean Impey

Jean’s Biography

Art has been an integral part of my life since I was a child. I remember always being intrigued and absorbed with making things. My mother encouraged my exploration of all things creative and my life-long creative journey took off including painting, sewing, photography, ceramics, embroidery, gardening just to name a few.

My style, my passion, my energy is boundless… I love discovering, I love looking, I love seeing, I love the way others see, and I love doing!

I don’t worry about doing it wrong…. There is no such thing in the creative process. I like how Albert Einstein said, “The easiest way to be creative: try something different, even if you don’t think it will work.”

I look forward to sharing my story, work and passion with you.

The Spider Web Quilt has been around for hundreds of years and there are many ways to make one. I have come up with a quick and accurate method using your scraps of fabric to create a unique quilt. The great thing about the spider web block is that it can be made traditional, modern, or liberated. Learn new techniques that will improve your speed, and accuracy which will apply to all of your quilt projects.

Bring your favorite fabrics and scraps whether it’s contemporary, modern, traditional, hand dyes, tonal, batiks, or thimbleberries – it looks best when you throw in everything…. My first Spider Web has over 280 different fabrics – not including the crazy pieced kites. It was so exciting that I have made more than a dozen more.

In my one-day class, you will have enough time to make a pillow (check out student class work below) and then if you love the process, you can continue on and make the whole quilt.  It’s fun, it’s creative, and you’ll learn techniques that you will continue to use on other quilts you make.  There is a $12.00 Kit Fee which includes your own Plexiglass Kite-Shaped Template.
