Wendy Jane Creations Celebrating 40 years of creativity!

Wendy Jane Creations began 40 years ago with Baby Bibs made of Counted Cross Stitch fabric, and sold in needlework stores to be stitched on by the customers.

From there we created needlework kits, decorative house and yard flags, English Smocked children’s clothing, bookmarks for Counted Cross Stitch to machine embroidered aprons, dish towels and back full circle to machine embroidered baby bibs, and baby items. There have been many products along the way, and we are grateful for your support and patronage over the years.

We are proud to be able to give back to the community through donations of goods (Surry Arts Council, Arts Ball, Festival of Trees, Civic Club events etc.) and each purchase of a Mount Airy Bear’s Flag supports Vincent’s Legacy, Kindness Rocks.

Thank you for your years of supporting our creativity and patronage.

Happy GFWC Federation Day!

GFWC – The General Federation of Women’s Clubs is an international women’s organization  dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of other through volunteer service.

I have been honored to be a member of GFWC through my local clubs since 1985. Each April 24th we celebration the founding of our national organization which began in 1890.

Our motto is “Living the Volunter Spirit” which I have embroidered and used inside the cover of these notebooks.

GFWC clubs and clubwomen are the fabric that binds not only the Federation, but the communities in which they live and work. By Living the Volunteer Spirit, GFWC clubwomen transform lives each day, not simply with monetary donations, but with hands-on tangible projects that provide immediate impact.

GFWC Headquarters Jan. 2016

Over the years I have been allowed to make items incorporating the GFWC logo. In honor of of Federation Day here are a few, starting with the GFWC Yard flag, displayed at the GFWC Headquarters in Washinton, DC after a snow storm.

Using GFWC T-shirts, these wall hangings and pillows were used as fundraising items at the GFWC International Convention in Memphis in 2015

This year at the 126th Annual Convention a basket of GFWC goodies will be donated once again for the silent auction.

Sassy sayings for Sassy Women!

I love these designs by Urban Threads. They are perfect for some of my friends, and maybe yours as well.

GFWC-NC Friends with their new pillows!

These dish towel pillows were gifts the the GFWC-NC District for 2014-2016 and 2016-2018 District Presdients and Junior Directors! The pillows on the left say “Out of my way world, I’ve got my Sassy Pants on today”, and the pillows on the right say “Be Fearless”

Don't tell me.....
Don’t tell me…..

I love this saying: Don’t Tell Me What To Do! How many times have I heard that (and said it!) Shown here on a khaki dish towel pillow ($18.00 other colors always available). This design also looks great on aprons.

Aprons for an Angel (or two)

Lanie Pope and Miss Angel 2When you get a message from one of your favorite customers (Angela Nolfo of Miss Angel’s Heavenly Pies) you never know where it will lead. The message last week lead to two very special aprons designed and stitched during Mount Airy’s Autumn Leaves Festival for Angela and WXII Weather person Lanie Pope to wear while making pies and creating baking magic.

Seeing these pictures just makes me smile! Thank you Angela for keeping Wendy Jane Creations in mind to make this moment special.

The response to the Girlfriends design has been overwhelming! Thank you!!GFWC Girlfriends 1

I have been asked for some variations, so there is now a design with 5 women along with the first design which has 4 women.

Girlfriends 5 girls

The design was inspired by my long time GFWC (General Federation of Women’s Club) friends and mentors, so yes, GFWC Girlfriends was designed as well.
