Jane Austen was born December 16, 1775. Her timeless novels, Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensiblity, Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion continue to enchant readers the world over. I have enjoyed bringing Miss Austen's writing to needle & thread since 2009. Since then I have been overwhelmed by the affection of stitching Janeites, like myself, who never tire of her style and story. Do you have a favorite Austen novel?
