Instructor

VanDenburgh, Jessica
Jessica VanDenburgh has a love for all things handmade. Her grandmother taught her how to sew at a young age and continuously encouraged her creativity and her background in interior design makes her a natural with color and pattern selection. She discovered quilting and bagmaking in 2005 and started making bags for friends and family in 2007. Soon, Jessica expanded her pattern company to include simple quilts and other accessories. Her company, Sew Many Creations, began as a custom bag company, but it has grown into a pattern business that specializes in beginner-friendly bags and quilts. Jessica’s laid-back approach to teaching makes students feel at ease. You’ll find that her classes are full of fun facts, tips, tricks, and a whole lot of laughter.
