Janis Note is the designer behind Noteworthy Needle. She was raised in Kansas City where she earned her BBA and worked in the banking and mortgage industry. She currently resides in Northern New Jersey on a mountain top with her husband Tom.
The design bug hit at an early age and the first item she remembers stitching was the backside of a latch hook pillow when she was a child. She felt compelled to backstitch a note to her mother on it. Her first cross stitch piece was over 30 years ago when she altered and added an original poem.
She has taught classes at Celebration of Needlework for the past few years and to local embroidery groups, regional retreats and her local EGA Chapter. Her designs are an eclectic mix which range from reproductions samplers to a line of wearable items. She is also the maker of Floss Beeswax Waxers, a process which reminds her of candy making with her mother.
