Jackie Way

Jackie Way is the creator and designer, and basically the "WAY',  behind “up and a WAY designs”. 
By day, she is a full-time “science geek”, but after a day of technical thinking, she can’t wait to get creative. she loves sewing, quilting, baking, anything crafty...and Pinterest!  When not busy being a single mom to her teenage twins, you can find her whipping up some treats in the kitchen or stitching together a project at her sewing machine.

All her burlap comes from authentic coffee sacks which have traveled from countries all around the world to carry their native beans to your morning cup of coffee.  While you get to enjoy their rich, exotic flavors, she gets to enjoy creating treasures from these unique and interesting burlap sacks. Imagine all the places these sacks have been and the stories they could tell if only they could talk!
