About

After a 20-year career in marketing, retail design and media relations, I am now happily designing home decor and fashion accessories at Just B Designs from my country studio in Pontiac, Quebec.

I have been sewing home accessories for myself friends and family for years.

I finally got the courage to start cutting into some of this very precious fabric (it was difficult) and got busy with designing whatever came to mind.

In 2007, I registered my domain name, and bought a few knitting and sewing machines on ebay, some thread and hardware for making bags and got down to exploring the possibilities. A line of felted wool tote bags began to take shape before the wool morphed into coffee pot cozies, slippers, placemats, blankets pillows and more.

I would eventually like to teach sewing, textile printing and production and to encourage others like me to get out and pursue their creative dreams. Until then, I thrive on creating my products from an ever growing collection of delicious cotton and wool textiles and to work with talented artisans and retailers in Canada. Life is bliss! Thanks for visiting my shop. Anne
