Return to Member Bios

Internationally renowned quilting artist and author.


Jane Haworth lives in Auburn, CA with her tolerant husband and young son. They have no pets; just sewing machines to take care of. Jane has turned their house into a creative space for writing and sewing.  The Haworth’s, including their two-college age daughters, moved from England in 1998 and have settled well into a Californian lifestyle. As a family they love to travel, explore California, camp, hike, garden and cook healthy meals.

Jane currently works from home creating custom memory quilts for clients nationally and internationally from her online shop on Etsy.com. She also lectures about quilting and teaches kids and adults to sew and quilt. She has exhibited her quilts at many of the major venues around the United States including the International Quilt Festival in Houston.

Jane’s forays into writing began with family travel articles that were published online on the Gold Country Families website as well as magazines including Sierra Heritage, Sunset, California Kids and other local newspapers. She has had her travel and theater reviews published numerous times in Gold Country Times. In 2009 she took part in the NANOWRMO challenge and wrote a children’s adventure book set in Devon, England. Her quilt related articles and work have been featured in various quilting magazines including Quilting Arts, Modern Patchwork and Quilters Newsletter.  Her quilt ‘Nameless Afghan Girl’ was featured on the cover of the Notable Woman exhibition catalogue.

Jane continues to combine her love of sewing and writing. Her greatest concern is that there are not enough hours in the day to work through all her ideas and projects. Enjoy ‘Pearlies’ where Jane brings together her English heritage, sewing and love for travel.
