From Students:

Dear Jan -

I just wanted to thank you again for another really wonderful class. I had never taken a quilting class before the Glacier Star, and it was a turning point for me in my quilting. Having a highly skilled. articulate, very intelligent and patient teacher makes an immeasurable difference. I never, ever would have had the courage to try either of those patterns, but with your guidance and encouragement it actually happened. I learned so much, and I had fun. If you teach it, I will come!

See you in a couple of months after I become a grandmother! — Bonnie L.

“Awesome teachers bring out the impossible in their students. Thank you for not letting me give up, collect my marbles, and go home.” Becky S.

From Shops:

My name is Terry Skrabanek and I am the owner of Lone Star Quiltworks located in Bryan, Texas. Jan Mathews has visited us several times in the capacity of a certified Judy Niemeyer teacher. Short and sweet, our students love Jan! Her class supply lists are well organized and to the point regarding the necessary patterns, supplies, fabric, and pre-class preparation required prior to class instruction. All of the fifty plus students that have taken classes from her have been extremely complimentary concerning how patient Jan has been with them. But the best overall thing about Jan is her sense of humor. She always has a look that conveys something is simmering behind those eyes! As many of Judy's patterns appear daunting to the student, having a teacher that can break her patterns down into smaller components and take the fear out of tackling Judy's beautiful designs has been a joy to us.
