Although Jeannette Douglas created her first needlework designs after a special trip, stitching has always been a part of Jeannette’s life. As a teenager, she enjoyed many different types of needlework. Jeannette has a background in floral design and folk art painting, both of which give her knowledge of color and design. She puts a great deal of research in her designing efforts. Regular visits to stitch shops in the United States, Canada, and overseas have been a big part of her business since 2002.
Jeannette Douglas lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with her husband. Her two daughters are both out on their own. One is working as a graphic designer for the Recreation Department at Mount Royal University and is now married! The other also finished her degree and a diploma in Arts & Cultural Management and works in the Arts community in Edmonton. Jeannette gave up working nursing in 2009 in the Psychiatric unit at a local hospital where she worked for many years. She is a singer and sang with the Calgary Philharmonic Choir for 20 years.
