Janellea Macbeth Biography
Janellea Macbeth is a quilting author, speaker, and thought leader. She has been sewing
unsupervised since the age of three, and spent many years specializing in garment construction.
With over 3 decades of sewing experience, Jan has achieved mastery of modern garment
construction, pattern drafting, and alteration, formalwear, tailoring costuming, historically
accurate period reproductions, and corset construction of the 1860’s.
At the age of 9, Janellea began a lifelong love of quilting while spending a week in a non-electric
hunting cabin in Maine (with her parents). She enjoys hand piecing, machine piecing, paper
piecing, applique, hand quilting, machine quilting, and longarm quilting. In 2009, Janellea began
scrap quilting in self-defense. Her unique balance of chaos and order within scrap quilts
developed ash she found ways to use up the scraps that were a byproduct of her voracious
quilting hobby. As she found her own “quilting voice,” she began to look for ways to streamline
the way she dealt with scraps. Jan’s system for cutting, storing, and using scraps evolved over
the course of several years. Each iteration of the system moved towards greater flexibility,
creativity, and productivity. Ultimately, ScrapStashtic Quilts evolved into an adaptable, easy-to-implement,
appealing, and compact system that can support the needs of any sewing room.
Since publishing her scrap system in the Amazon #1 Bestseller, ScrapStashtic Quilts, Organizing
your Scrap Stash and Actually using it, Jan has been inspiring thousands of quilters to creatively
use the bins of fabric that have been waiting for “someday.” Quilters who love Jan’s book are
discovering creative ways to push their artistic boundaries through scrap quilting, and are also
enjoying the benefits of more free space in their sewing rooms.
Janellea regularly visits regional quilt guilds as a guest lecturer throughout the country, where
she provides education, inspiration, and motivation to guild members. Audience members
enjoy a one-of-a-kind, sneak peek behind-the-scenes look at the quilts that inspired the creation
of the quilt recipes included in ScrapStashtic Quilts.
