Janet  Pace

Janet Pace first came to William Holland in 2001 to take a wire class at the urging of her sister, Dianne Brooks, who is also an instructor at William Holland, and has been attending ever since. With a degree in Clothing and Textiles, she began designing and publishing patterns for making Battenberg Lace and smocking for women in 1986. When she discovered the knitting machine in 1991, she began designing patterns and teaching at knitting seminars around the country. In 2001 Janet started teaching jewelry classes across the state of Arkansas at various bead shops and invitational venues. Topics included wire, PMC, cold connections, silver soldering, Viking knit and chainmaille. Her latest and most fun adventure has been flame painting on copper: the precise placement of colors and patterns using different temperature of torch flame. See examples at:www.janetpacedesgins.com
