Janet Clare is an artist, textile designer, teacher, author, quilter and all round creative thinker who is inspired by words, sayings and lovely phrases that she comes across and also by children and the joy they find in the mundane.
Janet captures these nuggets, thoughts and ideas in scrapbooks and sketchbooks which she describes as ‘quite literally the most inspiring thing I own’. From these she creates inspirational and lively designs for quilts and stitcheries that combine traditional patchwork, her unique jointed appliqué templates and free motion machine drawing techniques.
A regular blogger, Instagram and Pinterest fanatic, Janet has embraced a world-wide ‘virtual’ community of quilters and designers and gets great pleasure from sharing and discussing her projects and ideas with fellow quilters and artists all around the world.
Janet has created a range of quilt and stitchery patterns, written five books and designed seven fabric collections in collaboration with Moda,
one of the leading international fabric manufacturers.
Her work features frequently in patchwork and quilting publications and as an experienced speaker and teacher, she regularly host talks and workshops focusing on the design process and the creative techniques she uses. In addition, she now appears regularly on Create and Craft TV sharing her latest products, tips and tricks. Janet lives in Hampshire in the UK in a happy muddle with her family and a dog called Betty.
