Jane, or Laren, is another incredibly talented stitcher and crafter I met through Flickr and the Embroidery group. You can see some of her meticulous and detailed projects on her blog. She also blogged with us at Feeling Stitchy, mixing descriptions of traditional and historic needlework with simple, straightforward, sweet projects. Her knowledge and skill are out of this world and I was honored to have her help us.

Jane sews amazing historical pieces, bookbinds, knits, quilts, and embroiders gorgeous Elizabethan era designs. In short, she is, as I already mentioned, incredibly talented. She also created a Vogart pattern wiki which was a wonderful resource for collectors and embroiderers. She's generous with her time and expertise, and is an inspiration to all of us newbie crafters.

My conversation with Jane contains just a tiny glimpse of her talent, please look at her photo stream for more. Thank you, Jane, for sharing your talent with us, and bringing a glimpse of historical beauty to our lives!
