JBW Designs was established over thirty years ago and the artist/owner Judy Whitman specializes in small but elegant cross stitch leaflets. Creating has been a part of her life since she was young, and a background in art and education led to her eventual career as a designer. Significant events, such as weddings, the birth of a baby, owning a home and holidays prompt many of her creations. She is inspired by antique samplers, and often uses small sampler motifs to create larger designs. These can be found in her line of French Country designs. With two children , six grandchildren, a love of gardening, furniture painting and reading - it's not difficult to see how inspiration can be found in all aspects of her life.
