Jan Donaldson Designs … 43 Years of Imagination in Stitchery ….Let’s Talk ….
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 43 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 (January 2022) I’m making a bit of everything…for the guys…. music themed shirts and fun staged up jackets for casual 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 2 years 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 on the street and on stage. I really miss seeing posts on facebook of people having fun in my clothing. Big hug to you.

I have resumed my 365 day celebration of my 43 years in business recently with my pictures and memories of my life as a fibre artist, quilter and clothing designer. I started my celebration 3 years ago and got sidetracked so here I am again with it at 43 Years. Lot’s of fun little stories and pictures. I have a blog set up below if you would like to follow along.
