Jan, in her quiet way was one of the kindest people....working at the Hand one day, while dusting, I inadvertently knocked the leg off a rather expensive piece of pottery. I was beside myself but Jan just laughed and said "we break things all the time." That was her way. Jan and Shel took us to many craft shows, made dinner for us and treated us with respect and had faith in our work ethic by many times letting us take care of the store while they were away. Jan and I had many wonderful conversations about her beautiful cats that she loved and she instilled in me to this day the love of professional hand made crafts. She will never be forgotten.

I am so sorry to learn of Jan's passing. I feel extremely saddened by this news yet my heart is very warmed by her memory. Jan hired me many moons ago (30 years ago to be exact) to work for her at Hand of the Craftsman while I was an art student in college. I can honestly say that out of all the jobs I've had in my life, including being an artist, an art teacher and proprietor of my own fine craft gallery, working for Jan was my absolute favorite. She had a way of making people feel like they fit, like they belonged. She had a gift for seeing the potential in people and brought together an amazing group of employees that felt more like a family, rather than just co-workers. Because of Jan, many of us have remained life-long friends to this very day.

Jan always made me feel like I was capable of accomplishing anything. At the time I was a broke, insecure art student, and she was a font of encouragement to me. She whole-heartedly supported my dream of becoming an artist. As a working artist herself, she became my role model. I'm not sure if she ever realized just how much her constant kindness meant to me, and how it ultimately propelled my future success and achievements. For this, I will never forget her and will always be grateful to her.

Rest with the angels, dear Jan. I hope you left this world knowing that it is a better place because you were in it.

I knew Jan through the Hand of the Craftsman and even worked there a few times during the busy holidays. She had a cute little banner hanging on the door showing a puffin with the words, "No Puffin" (no smoking). Having adored puffins since I was a child, I mentioned one day that if she ever felt like getting rid of it to please not throw it out as I would love it. Years later, I went into the store about the time it would be closing for good and she handed it to me. I couldn't believe she remembered. I had only mentioned it one time. That's the kind of woman she was - generous and kind as well as talented, funny, and smart. She will be greatly missed.
