Screenprinted fabric by Jen Hewett


I receive a lot of emails asking the same, few questions, so I thought I’d answer the questions I receive most often here.

Scarf Club memberships for 2022 are closed. You will be able to purchase individual scarves when they become available, while those supplies last.

I no longer regularly teach my block printing class, and am not looking to add new teaching venues at this time. If I do decide to teach again, you'll be able to find my teaching schedule here.

I am not looking for new teaching venues - either in-person and online - at this time. I occasionally make an exception for colleges/universities and nonprofit educational organizations that provide week long (or longer) programs for art students and working artists. These sessions must be booked at least a year in advance.

Yes, I do! I’ve taught private classes for a number of companies in the Bay Area. Please contact me if your company would like more information about this. However, I do not teach classes for private parties or quilt guilds, or do one-on-one sessions with individuals.

I get asked these questions a lot, which is one of the reasons I started teaching, and wrote a book. The answers are complex, and are very specific to my own practice. I share information about my tools and materials only in my classes and my book. If you’d like to take my online class, you can find more information here. More information about my book is here.

My wholesale suppliers are part of my intellectual property, and not information I share publicly. I could talk more about why, but Danielle Spurge's blog post here pretty much covers my reasons.

My studio isn’t open to the public. These days, I’m often working on client projects that I can’t yet share publicly. Plus, my studio is in my home and I’m very protective of my privacy!

I wish there were more hours in the day! Alas, I often don’t have enough time to see all the friends I already have, and I don’t like to interrupt my workday to socialize, so I have a blanket policy of not meeting up with strangers (however lovely they may be) for coffee/drinks/etc.

Again, I'm very protective of my time, and so I also have a blanket policy of not doing informational interviews, whether in person, on the phone, or via email. I'd write a blog post about my more specific reasons for not doing end-of-term student interviews, but the illustrator Marian Bantjes has already written a fantastic essay where she talks about her reasons, and I couldn't have said it better myself. In my recent podcast interviews I've talked pretty openly about my path and the challenges I've faced. You can find links to those interviews here.

No, I do not. I made this decision due to constraints on my time, space, and capital.

You can be notified when I restock an item by going to that item's listing in my shop, and clicking on the "email when available" button. I do not take preorders for any items.

I ran my Tea Towel of the Month Club in 2017 and 2018, and have since discontinued it so I can focus on other projects.

I have a commercial line with Moda Fabrics/Ruby Star Society, which is available in my shop now. Retailers can buy fabric directly from Moda.

Yes, I do, and am always looking for new licensing opportunities. If you are a manufacturer, publisher, or other business that regularly licenses artwork, please contact me to discuss further.

It depends. I do custom work for retail and corporate clients, as well as license my artwork. If this is something that your company is interested in, please contact me. I do not have the bandwidth to take on smaller projects for individuals.

Probably not! Most of my hand-printed work is limited-edition, which means that once something sells out, it’s gone. I don’t re-run limited editions.

No, I do not accept advertisements or sponsored content. My site and blog are pretty much for promotion of my own work only.
