More About Artisan, Jan Jaworsky
After graduating from UW Honours Coop BMath, Bus Admin in 1988, Jan joined a Waterloo software startup becoming a senior level product marketing executive and "retiring" after 20 years.
Jan's pastime always involved designing and making clothes and accessories. As a mother of two boys, she designed and made hockey scarves in Waterloo colours to sell as a fundraiser and putting proceeds toward team budgets.
Jan recognized a need for a lady’s fashion accessory when “too hot” for a scarf and when “too heavy” for chunky jewellery. Jan's collection leverages metallic yarns from Europe and are often thought to be beaded. In 2012, Jan created ScarfLady™ and sells at handmade shows such as the One of a Kind Show in Toronto and Chicago and online at www.ScarfLady.ca. Jan is able to leverage her former 20-year career of marketing and trade show experience in the high-tech industry. She continues support of many Waterloo Region fundraisers through silent auction donations.
