About Us

Two sisters…one house…lots of creativity……what could possibly happen???

Janet is the true “fabric junkie.” As she tells her sewing students, she doesn't remember not sewing. Janet has degrees in home economics education and clothing & textiles and researched patchwork quilts for her master’s thesis. She’s spent the last 30+ years in retail management as well as teaching sewing and being a custom dressmaker. When she was downsized out in the summer of 2013, it was an easy decision to leave corporate world and big box retail behind.

Sandy is the “tech goddess.” Growing up, she always enjoyed creative things, including wood shop in junior high, but was never really bitten (until recently) by the sewing bug. Sandy received her degree in travel/tourism management and has spent most of the last 30+ years working as a travel agent in both corporate and military/government settings. In September of 2013, the company she worked for lost its contract for the account she worked on, so for a number of reasons she decided the time was right for a change.

So what do two single sisters who share a house do??? We create FPS Creative, LLC and all its branches:

The Creative Thread by JP, Janet’s Etsy shop
and our main venture,
The Quilter’s Bazaar.
While these businesses occupy much of our time, we still are very active at church, are members of the Philadelphia Modern Quilt Guild, love a good tea party, and travel the world whenever possible.
