Artisan Bio

Jane Rioux has joined our team at Creative Artisans of Maine.   She has been recreating memorabilia from the 1800s with primitive dolls or other home décor.  Jane’s passion is working with fabric or also would know her as a fabric artist.  Creating dolls was her specialty, but she can also knit and crochet.  Doing applique is her favorite when working with fabric.

 

Jane owned Home Spunne, Minot Ave., Auburn.  She did classes at that location and at Woolen Mills, in Oxford.  She will be doing classes at Creative Artisans.  Watch our schedule and posts for future classes with Jane.
