Fashion and sewing have always been a part of Jaclyn’s life. One grandmother was a buyer for JCPenney and taught Jaclyn to love clothing and fashion while her grandmother chose what would be in the store. Her other grandmother, along with her mom, taught her all the sewing basics and they often worked on projects together.
After teaching high school English for five years, Jaclyn started a family and became a stay-at-home mom. With a houseful of gingers, the moniker Gingerland was born. Knowing she did not want to return to the classroom, Jaclyn went back to her roots of creating and making and Jaclyn Faye by Gingerland was established.
