projects

We love projects at JPK&S. We also love process. We never tire of seeing someone come in the store and buy yarn or fabric and leave with an idea of what they want to make (sometimes with a pattern, sometimes not, sometimes it’s just some dream project in their head and sometimes it’s meticulously plotted out on graph paper) and then come in and show us what they have created days, weeks, or months later. This part of our website is dedicated to our community of creators…they inspire us every day and hopefully they will also inspire you.

Quilting by Hand

We were lucky to be in the shop today when Joyce came by to show off her quilts. Joyce is a self-taught quilter who hand quilts (even the piecing!) and makes the most amazing, modern quilts with wonderful color feeling + juxtaposition. She is old school! Instead of a rotary cutter, Joyce uses scissors; instead of plexi measuring tools, she uses what’s at hand: a sticky for her two inch squares, a napkin for her larger squares, and a tin top for her large circles. We just love her white backgrounds and the bright strips of color…they really pop! Joyce follows no patterns or diagrams, just works it out in her head. We asked Joyce if we could display her crafting art during one of our First Thursday JP art walks and she said…yes! Stay tuned for September 4th when her quilts will be on display in the shop.
