Works of Jan Conners

Jan Conners grew up surrounded by creative women. Her mother and aunts quilted, knitted, and embroidered so it was easy to follow in their footsteps and start stitching. After mastering cross-stich, Conners taught herself crewel embroidery and studied a seventeenth century raised embroidery, called stumpwork. These forms of embroidery allowed her creative freedom and satisfied her artistic side. Conners has been embroidering for over 40 years and still enjoys the process of taking a scrap of fabric and a pile of threads and creating something beautiful.
