Janette grew up in a home where handwork of excellent quality was appreciated. Quilting, knitting and crocheting were part of everyday life. Learn to Tat, a book Janette published several years ago, is a tribute to her mother and grandmother for instilling in her the love of all handwork.
Always partial to the delicate beauty of tatting, Janette began to share her love of tatting with others. Janette is a talented tatting teacher. From her own experience of learning to tat, she realized the need for clear, precise instructions. Her desire is to elevate tatting to the true art form it deserves. In addition to having taught hundreds of private students, she has also taught classes her local college, quilting shop and Michael's Arts & Crafts store.
The proud mother of seven children, Janette is also a business owner, past educator and involved in her community and church.
