About the Author
Jane Jenkins was born and has lived in East Yorkshire virtually all of her life. She had worked as a teacher for nine years when, in 1981, her husband, Paul, brought home a book from the library, and the fascination with quilling began. Since then she has been teaching in local Adult Education classes and in workshops nationwide.
In 1982 she and Paul started a small business, making and selling paper strips and designs for quilling. The business has since expanded to sell books, kits and videos throughout the world.
Jane, a founding member of the International Quilling Guild, was made Honorary Vice-President for her contribution to quilling.
Jane has two daughters, Cate and Jo, who are themselves accomplished quillers, and is at her happiest at home, designing new ways to quill.
