I create all of my quilts and smaller works in my studio at home and show customers what they're buying in person. I am also the creative director of PALS on Main, a studio where I run workshops with young adults with special needs.
I sell a multitude of products including Fabric Art, Wall-Hangings, Bed-Quilts, Custom Memory Quilts (T-Shirt Quilts), Fabric Garlands, Fabric Crowns, and Baby Quilts. I've also written my own book, Princess and the Quilts, a storybook with fun projects for people of all ages.
My mission is to spread the passion of quilting to my students, colleagues and customers. I create my art with the intention of satisfaction for myself and my customers. As an experienced artist, I hold myself to a standard that is clearly portrayed in my art.
Hello! My name is Janneke Van Der Ree. As you can probably tell from my quilts and my name, I was born in the Netherlands and moved here with my husband. I am the proud mother of two sons and a daughter, and the grandmother to an adorable grandson.
I graduated from university with a degree in Textile and Art Design, and worked as a teacher for several years in the Netherlands. Here in the US, I teach sewing lessons, create custom quilts, do lectures, workshops, and make my own projects. I'm always trying to branch out!
Right now, I'm working with my husband and son to expand my business and speculate on future endeavors. I hope to eventually construct a venue to host quilt retreats, publish my own books, and continue to expand my studio to create more quilts for my customers.
