Meet the Editor: Jenny


Hi everyone! We’re chatting with Jenny today, a relatively new member of our team. She is thrilled to be working as an editor for AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns.

She was born and raised in Wilmette, a suburb just north of Chicago and graduated from Missouri’s School of Journalism with a Bachelor’s degree in Magazine Design and a minor in Textile & Apparel Management. While at Mizzou, she worked as a contributing student writer for the Columbia Missourian daily newspaper and Vox Magazine. Before joining the team of editors at Prime Publishing, she spent some time working in the veterinary field as a receptionist, while simultaneously freelance writing for an online shopping community to satisfy her need to write (and to shop!). Although she loved playing with animals, she feels very lucky to now be spending her days writing about crafts.

Outside of work, Jenny enjoys shopping, reading blogs, playing board games, and relaxing with the latest issue of Real Simple magazine. She absolutely cannot live without music (No Doubt is her all-time favorite band), and Diet Pepsi. Since joining our team of crafty editors, Jenny’s “bucket list” of crafts has grown significantly; check out some of her favorite craft projects below!

Here are some Fun Facts about Jenny:

  1. Are you a crafter? What crafts do you like to do?
    I enjoy crafting, but I don’t consider myself an experienced crafter by any means. I’ve taken ceramics classes in the past, which I loved, and I managed to knit a scarf during high school. I have also made a butterfly mosaic with tiled glass. These days, paper crafting is about all I have time for. If I had more free time, I would definitely love to spend it honing my random craft skills.
  2. How long have you been crafting?
    Jenny: Probably since kindergarten. My popsicle stick reindeer ornament still hangs on our family Christmas tree to this day!
  3. If you were stranded on a deserted island, what five craft supplies or tools would you want with you?
    Jenny: Glitter, paint, a paintbrush, cardstock, and Mod Podge.
  4. What craft have you always wanted to try?
    Jenny: I would love to make a quilt. My mom has saved all of my favorite t-shirts from when I was a kid, and I would love to sew them all together someday as a keepsake.
  5. Have you ever had a craft fail? Tell us about it.
    Jenny: I set out to make a scrapbook for a friend’s baby shower, and definitely under-estimated the amount of time it would take to complete. I didn’t start early enough and found myself cutting paper, drawing bubble letters, and decorating the pages with stickers on the train ride from Chicago to St. Louis. It ended up turning out fantastic, but I wouldn’t exactly consider the train the most ideal place to craft.

    It is great to meet you, and it is great to see I am not the only one who has done some strange things to meet a deadline. Good luck as the editor, can’t wait to see what’s next for you.

    Hi Jenny….nice to meet you. I have a problem with the legs on Teddy Bear Crochet Patter and I see that there are other folks that seem to have had the same problem. It must be the way we are interpreting the leg pattern. If I crochet as I’m reading then there is no way to stuff the leg. I’ve been working the left leg and have reread the instructions way to many times to be having fun with this. Can you PLEASE help me understand this little leg! Thanks
