Meet Shop Artist: Jane Smeltzer

Museum Shop

Jane Smeltzer is the designer behind the Shop’s well-loved recycled wool rosette scarves, gloves, and lapel pins. Jane's mother was a beautiful seamstress and always wanted Jane to sew. Unfortunately, she never got to see the day Jane would touch a sewing machine, but when her mom passed, Jane inherited her mother’s sewing machine and was determined to someday learn the craft. 

Smeltzer’s wild and wooly creations, made using the old sewing machine, would make her mom very happy! The fiber is 100% wool and cashmere from old sweaters.
