Jen started patchwork and quilting while at nursing school and was hooked immediately. After a distinguished career in emergency, surgical and, finally, midwifery, she purchased a long-arm quilting machine. Shortly after, she opened a quilting and fabric retail outlet. This store quickly doubled in size, spurring Jen to open a second outlet. These businesses were sold to make way for "Amitie Textiles" in Gardenvale Victoria, Australia. Ninety percent of Jen's work is hand pieced. It usually has a touch of applique and is quilted in the big stitch method, which she has been doing for twenty years. She has taught patchwork and big-stitch quilting to hundreds of classes since entering the quilting industry. http://www.jenkingwelldesigns.blogspot.com and http://www.amitie.com.au
