best part of hosting this show is that I am able to invite on people
whose work I admire greatly. Jennifer Sampou Hensley is a fabric
artist that I have followed for years. I just love her work! When I
designed my first fabric line, she was the art director at the
company. I was thrilled when one of her designs became part of my
Jennifer's creative journay is so interesting, I'm thrilled to have
her on the show to share about it.
