Her Heart’s Desire might be yours, as well

New shop sells handmade creations, offers classes

PROPHETSTOWN – JoAnn Frederick is the heart in Heart’s Desire, and she has a shop full of things she loves and things she loves to make.

Some might remember Frederick from years past, when she specialized in silk and dried floral arrangements.

She still does some flower arrangements, but these days she mostly works with glass, making sun catchers and wall hangings from stained glass, mosaic tables from small pieces of ceramic tile, and jewelry and dishes from fused glass. She also paints glass bottles and dishes.

Frederick also makes barn quilts; you can buy one of hers or she will teach you to make your own. She also has been learning to refurbish furniture and may offer that at the shop in the future.

Heart’s Desire offers classes in making barn quilts, jewelry, fused-glass dishes, painting and mosaic tables.

Since it is sometimes difficult to get 10 people together at the same time with the same interests, she also offers one-on-one instruction during shop hours. And one night a month, friends are invited for a ladies night out to visit, dabble and shop.  

Heart’s Desire, 310 Washington St., is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday though Friday and from 9 a.m. to noon Sunday. Call 815-537-2455 for class schedules and other information.
