From a young age, Claudia realized she could not go through the world riding a tricycle wearing nothing but a bowl on her head. She began working with textiles as a teenager and once she became a mother began sewing for her home and family.
Opening a store in Cayuga, Ontario in the 1990's she sold sewing machines, fabric, notions and yarns and did custom sewing and teaching the Kids Can Sew program in the summers for children 8 years and older. She closed the store in 1993 to pursue a professional career.
Now semi-retired she has launched Jane Street Quilts and made creating quilts and home decor her full time occupation. With years of experience in creating unique items, repairing goods, sewing custom window coverings and home decor - she offers professional products and services to the discerning client. Pick up and delivery is from Kettleby Ontario in King TWP. close to the 400 Hwy and Hwy 9.
