Their little car was full. Packed with tubs of pincushions, and displays, even an outdoor tent. When I asked Jane if she would do a video, she gave me the most incredulous look. “Not me,” she said. But her husband Tom gently prodded her with a smile. “Why not?”
The thing I’ve found about artists is that once they start talking about their work, there’s no stopping them. So it was just a matter of asking Jane a question or two and she was off.
Jane a delightfully quirky person. With a great sense of humor and a very generous spirit. She also does beautiful work. Which you can see in the video.
You can get to know Jane a little better through the writings on her blog Little House Home Arts.
( In her latest post she suggests: “Love and Peace Through Quilting” would indeed “make America great again”)
To buy Jane’s work (and it’s a lot more than just pincushions) you can click here. If you see a pin cushion in the video that you’re interested in and you don’t see on Jane’s website you can email me at [email protected].

Oh Maria, This is a keeper! Jane is so humble and almost shy! So glad she listened to Tom. The video is perfect. I think even Jane would approve! I definitely need a chicken to add to my collection. I think we are all delightfully quirky! Love to you Maria and to you Jane 🙂
You got that right Cindy. Jane was happy with the video and we already sold some of her pincushions.
They are so pretty I want one even if I don’t have any pins! 🙂 Good luck with the open house!
