HUDSON, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, the leading fabric and craft specialty retailer in America, announces an exclusive product line of more than 200 new prints and decor items from renowned American artist Susan Winget. With a career spanning nearly 30 years, Winget’s artwork commemorates family, faith and tradition in American homes and beyond.

“Susan’s products invite us to reflect and enjoy the simple things in life – through her artwork, she tells the story of the American home,” said Elaine Beeson, divisional vice president, home, seasonal and trend for Jo-Ann. “We are very excited to bring more of her inspirational prints and decor to Jo-Ann stores as her artwork truly echoes the values of our customers.”

Winget boasts one of the longest, most successful careers in art, and offers one of the most diverse themed portfolios in the marketplace. Her work appeals to the American female consumer and reflects deep traditions of family, friendship and faith. Winget’s broad appeal is attributed to an understanding of themes that are dear to the American family.

“Drawing and painting are a part of my life everyday. I have loved to color ever since I can remember,” said Winget. “I’m always seeing things or objects that enthuse me – that may make me want to take photographs that can provide inspiration and information for my artwork.”

The new print and decor line featuring more than 200 pieces is now available at Jo-Ann stores nationally and online at Joann.com.

July 19 through August 1, customers at participating Jo-Ann stores can enter to win a limited edition print that is signed by Winget. No purchase necessary; complete rules available at Joann.com/susanwinget. Winget will be in stores to talk about her artwork at upcoming events in Cleveland, Los Angeles and Atlanta during late July. The first 200 guests to each event will receive a free Susan Winget Lang journal for Winget to sign.
