Jane’s schedule & Workshops
We have some exciting news to share with all our quilting companions this season! Jane has teamed up with some of the leaders in our quilting community to develop some crafty new products to expand your stitching projects to new dimensions!
First of all, you probably know how much Jane loves to use heavy topstitching thread for quilting her art quilts. These 12 weight threads are much more substantial than regular sewing threads and consequently their affects are much more dramatic. So after many years of testing every brand and color of 12 weight thread, Jane has teamed up with Superior Threads to develop a perfect two-fisted top stitching thread in 50 pretty and practical colors. The thread is called SEW SASSY!! You can find individual spools and Sew Sassy sewing tips on the Superior Threads website. Plus Jane will be bringing them to all her workshops.
Next we are overjoyed to work with the fabulous HoopSisters who digitized some of Jane’s current textile designs for machine embroidery! This is a dream come true as Jane has been yearning to incorporate embroidery into her work for a long time. And you, too, will soon see some extraordinary ways to incorporated these new designs into your own work, especially if you keep tabs on our blog. You can purchase this wonderful collection through the HoopSisters website.
We are also pleased to announce the arrival of Jane’s newest FreeSpirit fabric collection at your favorite fabric store. Prairie Chic mixes a bit of 20th century modern and an unexpected pinch of retro color with a dash of danger. Sophisticated sewists will be stitching with “attitude” when they whip into Jane’s exciting new collection of prints. Perfect for large scale decorating like duvets and curtains and lovely for lively accents and accessories, too.
This is a surprising new pallet from the Sassaman studio. It’s a little retro, but totally modern, too. It just depends on how you use it, as you can see from the stunning graphic quilt above. The floral prints in this group are ideal for stitching into vintage style apparel and accessories. The crisp and lively geometric designs are well suited for quilt making, home decorating and embellishing wearables.
Rich and comfy would describe this color group. You would be snug as a bug in a rug in a cozy cottage dressed in this contented cloth. Miss Marple would have a tea cozy, a table cloth, some comfortable cushions and a duvet made from this collection.
The Cardinal colorway is a bit on the wild side. Bright primary colors liven up the potential projects here, so don’t be shy. These fabrics would be wonderful for sunshine accessories like totes, beach cover-ups and picnic-wear. Or make a splash with some perky pillowcases and winsome new window treatments. Think summer and citrus and you will be stitching up something colorful someday soon.
