Hi, I'm Jane and I thought you might like to know a little about me!
After working in the steel industry for 10 years, I decided to take redundancy and retrain in my first love of designing and making soft furnishings.
I set up my first business in 2003 but just as I was becoming established, my husband's job relocated us to The Netherlands. However, there were no regrets in packing up my sewing machine as we had two wonderful years bringing up three very young kids in a fabulous outdoor environment.
Fast forward to 2008 and we were back in the UK. However, I decided to be a full-time Mum until 2013 when I set up Jared Designs. Initially, I set up my business locally as a curtain designer but also started selling my cushions and crafts globally via my Etsy shop.
In 2017, I made the decision to concentrate on cushion design. Wanting to add more personalised items to my portfolio, I decided to invest in an embroidery machine - it's a bit of a beast but I'm taming it!
I love creating a variety of makes that give a special finishing touch to your home - custom orders are welcome on many of my products. Just pop me a message via my Contact page and I'd love to chat with you.
