I love finding local Chicago designers and artisans who showcase their designs and perfect their craft right in my hometown. My latest obsession is the textiles of Evanston based Jessica Jones. Jones is a blogging (check out her blog: www.howaboutorange.blogspot.com) graphic designer whose bold, lively prints are just fantastic. They are sold locally at Bucktown’s The Needle Shop (2054 W. Charleston St., 773-489-4230) and online at J. Caroline Creative. Check out Jessica’s cool, mod prints! I am definitely envisioning some of these textiles in my future projects….and did I mention they are very well priced?
