Jen Friedman was born in Baltimore, raised in Hagerstown and moved to Chestertown in 1992 to attend Washington College. Graduating in 1996 with a BA in American Studies and a Minor in Drama, Jen decided Kent County would be her permanent home. Some might know her from behind the counter at The Feast of Reason, or from being on stage, but few know Jen as a needlepointer. Jen’s been needlepointing for almost a decade. Her love of needlepoint began with her employment at Ehrman Tapestry. She has stitched for Ehrman’s catalogue and continues to stitch privately for customers.
