Last February, when I took a workshop from Jane Sassaman at Quilting in the Desert, she invited me to come visit her Harvard, IL studio and I jumped at the chance! After a call to publisher, Vicki Anderson, we lined up a July road trip from my home in Illinois, and what a fun day it was.
After a brief tour of the surrounding farmlands (road construction) we arrived at Jane’s studio and were greeted by very cool garden art before we ever reached the door. Jane’s studio is separate from her home and what an inspiration-filled place it was! The multi-room studio featured a generous storage area as we entered (Jane had given her husband, also an artist, an eviction notice for his “stuff” that had trickled in), then a state-of-the art studio on one side with an office on the other.
As you can see from the following photos, Jane’s fabrics, samples and other creative endeavors filled the rooms and we even got a preview of her upcoming fabric collection for Free Spirit! We hope you will enjoy the following photo tour as much as we enjoyed our actual tour. Thank you Jane for a fun-filled visit!
