Biography of Jean Brown

TEACHER, DESIGNER, PAINTER


Jean has designed, made many many quilts, some with matching oil paintings. Yes, Jean not only paints but teaches oil painting as well.
She accidently created a new and different way to hand quilt. Her technique is both comfortable, fast and you have more perfect stitches on both sides of your quilt. Jean has taught her quilting technique all over the country for the past 22 years as well as in Oahu, Hawaii.

Most claim her demonstrations are "LIKE MAGIC" and have proven to be a better way to quilt. PERFECT STITCHES ON THE BACK are automatic with the AUNT BECKY TOOL. The technique is not to move the hands except back and forth. NO FINGERS OR THE THUMBS MOVE--THE TOOLS DO ALL THE QUILTING.

Jean has started 7 new guilds over the years , and was a charter member of the SOUTHERN CA. COUNCIL OF QUILT GUILDS. She taught 9 years at the BEND OREGON, FESTIVAL OF CLASSES and Teaches at the MANCUSO SHOWS and THE ONTARIO, CA.--ROAD TO CALIFORNIA SEMINARS, and for several years with the APPLIQUE SOCIETY events. Jean has appeared with SHAR JORGENSON on TV, and more recently on Q.N.N. INTERNET to show her famoust technique WORLDWIDE. In her classes Jean shares many of tips for constructing quilts and is an expert on Hawaiian quilting techniques.
