Annie Jane's is led by a mother-daughter team who are dedicated to creating quality crafts that bring warmth into your home and inspire creativity. With over 30 years of sewing experience, the Annie Jane's team assures that the products you purchase will be the highest quality, each item hand-sewn with skilled craftsmanship, and patterns designed with simplicity.

"We're grateful for a heritage of mothers and daughters who have passed on their skills of working with their hands. Our ancestor, Annie Jane Richins, worked hard to support her pioneer family on the open plains of Grouse Creek, Utah. We are pleased to bring you the product line named for her, Annie Jane's Handmade Originals."

CEO and founder Karen Bowden creates each new product line from inspirations around her country home, whether it be the pumpkin patch in her garden or grandchildren swinging from the rope swing in her backyard. "My family has always enjoyed time together and I love to decorate with handmade items for the holidays. Decorations that are simple and have a flavor of country beauty are my favorite."

Based in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Annie Jane's displays at such stores as Deseret Book and Mormon Handicraft. "I'm known as the Pumpkin Lady," smiles Karen, as she describes herself. "Each fall, I bring in a load of soft sculptured pumpkins to different stores. They seem to sell like hotcakes, and I'm always getting calls to refill orders within a few days."

CDO (Chief Designing Officer) Emmy Southworth joined her mother to add her experience in graphics and computer aided design. "I have my mother's knack for artistic creation, and found my outlet for expression is with a paintbrush and keyboard."

With a degree in art education and experience with computer graphics, Emmy has designed Annie Jane's patterns, kits, and website. "I've always admired my mother's amazing sewing abilities. Our handmade originals have been taken to a new level with the pattern and kit packages so that others can have the same opportunity to create crafts of their own. "
