Nancy, I am so happy Jayne will be teaching here at JCCFS. I am on the waiting list for locals and looking forward to this class. I remember the first time Jayne came to JCCFS. She read on a Thursday night,and for some reason we had a small group attending, but she was delightful in her presentation. I have enjoyed her books since that time and I know I will enjoy her class.
