About Me

Hi and welcome to my site!  I’m Jann Newton, designer and owner of Newton Custom Interiors, my home-based drapery business which is located in central Illinois.

My mom taught me to sew when I was a little girl, and later, while in college, I studied interior design.  In 2000, I combined these two passions to start my drapery business – Newton Custom Interiors.

Then in 2013 I started this blog to share creative home decor projects with you!

I LOVE fabrics, and enjoy using them to create beautiful window treatments, pillows and lots of other projects.  I’m excited to be sharing some of these projects and sewing tutorials here on my blog.

My husband and I live in Illinois, and we have two grown children.  We also have five wonderful grandchildren, and we enjoy spending as much time with them as we can!

I’m so happy you stopped by.  If you have any questions, you can contact me by e-mail.
