My name is Jean Impey and I reside in San Juan Capistrano, California. I would love to come to your guild or retreat and share. I am passionate about quilting, speaking and teaching all levels of quilters.
Need a ZOOM lecture or workshop for your guild?
Covid-19 ZOOM Lectures are now available – $500.00. Keep your guilds and groups connected and motivated!
Use this link to see a 3 minute clip about me and what I would offer your guild via Zoom!
Lectures include my standard three lectures in a format that can accommodate over 200 attendees. I have spent time preparing and re-formatting the content to flow perfectly for everyone to see at home, in some cases, attendees prefer it because it’s easier for them to see and understand “up close”. At the end of my presentations, I share a trunk show that include some of my most recent work. Last, I suggest ideas, inspirations and actual groups for everyone to join so that they can work with their resources during this quarantined time.
I also have a half dozen workshops I’m teaching via ZOOM in a two part style. Three hours on day one, and a week later Three hours to finish up. What this does is actually gives the students time to absorb and try out the class projects and when we get together the second time, we talk about questions or any new ideas students have and then can all finish the projects on time. It really is great.
During this C-19 period, I may not be able to Zoom teach all of my workshops as I am really a hands-on teacher and want each student to be happy and successful. If there is one that you had your heart set on, please talk it over with me or perhaps we can schedule the workshop for a later date.

My lecture “Finding Your Passion and Running With It” includes how when you find something that fascinates you, then what steps to take to uncover what is unique and special to you and your art. What makes your quilt special and unique and how to pursue your special style and look.
This lecture actually builds on my first lecture. “Cre-a-tiv-i-ty and has Someone Stolen Yours” – This lecture is even better on Zoom and provides motivation and a new confidence that you didn’t know you had. It also gives you the newest tools and technology to make quilts and make your work both quicker and better. You will already be at your computer, phone or tablet and make sure you have somewhere to take notes because you’ll be shocked to see how much you learn. I promise…. If you feel that you will never be an art quilter (because you can’t draw….. I’ll solve that problem) and who knows where you can go with that objection out of the way.
My third lecture is so amazing, “An Insiders Look into the Textile Industry” it’s all about the fabric industry, highlighting Hoffman Fabrics. I have been an Ambassador for Hoffman Fabrics, working with the family, designing patterns, handling the challenges, judging and providing both videos and tours.
I also offer a variety of classes for all skill levels and many classes can complete their projects in one day, which also builds confidence! Some of these will be available on Live on Zoom in two 3-hour classes. List of classes available for you to review
I look forward to sharing my Passion for Quilting with you.

A new workshop and style that I’m so passionate about….
But it has to be in-person because so much of it is about design…
FABULOUS FACES – FREDDY STYLE
This quilt style and workshop was born when Freddy Moran and I began collaborating on collage techniques. We have taught retreats together and separately (I quilt and finish all of Freddy’s pieces for her). I have developed a unique way to quilt these collages, first with my “pencil quilting” and then with my “sketchy quilting” – YES – two different styles and steps of the quilting process.
If you want to learn this technique, ask your guild to hire me and I will come and teach you all of my design and quilting techniques. Here are a few of my “faces.”
BUT – Great news!!! – Freddy & I now have an Etsy Store – so you can buy our portraits –
What else am I up to? L – O – N -G – A – R – M…. I am longarming and loving it! If you have something you would like me to quilt for you, I’m reasonable and fast!
Have you ever received back your piece longarmed the same day?? or within 24 hours? I’ve been known to do that.
The Lickety Stitch Quilting Lounge is a joint venture between my BFF, Margie Bushaw and myself.
Longarming makes me happy these days, I love all things textile and our HQ Infinity is one more thing for me to love! Email or call me to mail or drop off a quilt you would like quilted. Jean@SewJean.com
