JBW Designs was founded in 1976. Its original designs were embroideries which were sold as samples for teaching. I have been drafting and printing cross-stitch designs in the form of little booklets for 34 years. These designs comprise quilting patterns, old-fashioned patters as well as motifs of babies, children, weddings and holidays. My French designs consist of many motifs with the old patterns and are usually embroidered in a single colour. In my free time, I like to read, handle antiques, work in the garden and spend time with our two married children and six grandchildren.
