Instructor: Janel Metsker
Instructor Bio: Janel lives in Springfield, Missouri with her husband, two sons, and adorable dogs! Janel loves travel, mountains, and family time on the lake. She loves coffee on her porch, time with her dogs, classical music, and home improvement projects! Many of these experiences have been inspiration for her designs. Janel started her love of sewing over 30 years ago in elementary school sewing with her mom. Over the years, her mom taught her how to make clothes, bags, upholster furniture, and many home decor items. When she was 21 years old, Janel was introduced to quilting while visiting her Aunt Carol. It was an instant love as Janel loves color, math, and truly all the steps in creating homemade gifts for others. During that weekend, she went to her aunt?s best friend?s house who owned a longarm quilting machine. Seeing the machine at work created a lifelong goal for learning the art of quilting. In 2011, Janel started her own company designing quilt patterns called Nite Owl Quilting (www.niteowlquilting.com). She considers her style modern quilting with traditional charm! Janel?s patterns and quilts have been displayed in International Quilt Market booths with Robert Kaufman fabrics, Stof Fabrics, Maywood Studios fabrics, Checker Distributors, Brewer Sewing Supplies, and E.E. Schenck. My Sunrise Stag pattern was featured in several issues of the Keepsake Quilting catalog. My It is Well quilted wall art pattern was featured in several issues of the Nancy?s Notions catalog. She now has over 25 published patterns with several more on the way!
