Jan Donaldson Designs … A wonderfully fun line of clothing so unique that it doesn’t need an outside label ….
I’m a hand-stitch applique artist, a musicians stage wear designer, a quilter , a clothing designer and a fibre artist and I’ve been so lucky to be living the life for 42 years. So much fun, hard work and adventures I’ve had because of my business and its taken me across the country so many times to so many cool spots to set up and sell my clothing.
These days (May 2021) I’m making a bit of everything…. music themed shirts and stage wear as well as a collection of cool ladies coats, lots of hats for men, women and kids and some beautiful little girls dresses as well as masks. I have a few big hand stitched wall hangings on the go as well. Custom orders are invited. This past year in 2020 has sure been a surprise with all the music festivals and live music venues cancelled. Sigh … I sure miss my friends and the music and the hugs. I miss seeing my clothing on people.
I have a studio and showroom in Chemainus, B.C. until the end of May 2021 with studio visits by appointment only. Wholesale orders welcome.
If you’d like to know what I have in stock then please check out my For Sale page. It has some of my available products in pictures and prices.
I shall be resuming my 365 day celebration of my 40 years in business shortly with my almost daily pictures and memories of my life as a fibre artist, quilter and clothing designer. I started my celebration 2 years ago and got sidetracked so here I am again with it at 42 Years. Lot’s of fun little stories and pictures. I have a blog set up below if you would like to follow along.
