About Us


About RoJenDesigns

RoJenDesigns provides the Salinas, CA, community with a fully equipped sewing studio, including four Baby Lock sewing machines, thread, notions, two ironing stations, two cutting stations, and excellent lighting, to meet a variety of quilting needs.

Owner, Rori Jensen, is a long time quilter with a passion for sharing her knowledge and skills with all who wish to learn. Opening a quilting studio was a dream, ten years in the making, that finally became a reality in 2014.

Outfitted with custom cabinets and other home crafted wood furnishings created by Rori’s husband, Paul, the RoJenDesign studio features a friendly, casual atmosphere (along with a homey wood stove for cozy evening quilting sessions) where quilters of all skill levels feel comfortable learning, creating, and socializing.

Classes are small so students receive the one-on-one attention they need…and Rori is always on hand to offer her expertise, enthusiasm, and support! We also offer a Vacation Rental By Owner (VRBO) which provides excellent accommodations (meals included!) for quilting and crafting retreats or girlfriend getaways.

Our goal is to foster confidence and proficiency in our customers, students, and guests to enhance their quilting experience and encourage their success in creating beautiful heirloom quality quilts!

A long time dream come true! Finally!, a space where we can showcase our wild and funky creativity! Most items will be constructed from reclaimed materials or will be built around repurposed old furniture or cabinets, the ultimate recycling! We will have tables, chairs, lights, benches, cutting boards, wood boxes and lots of other cool stuff (depending on how much energy we have between now and then!) Come and check it out, you may not see anything you like, but then again, you may..... or, you may just be inspired! The only way to know is to stop by! We will have treats available (chocolate mental health bars (brownies), oatmeal raisin breakfast bites (oatmeal cookies) and who knows what else Rori will whip up in addition to her creative fabric creations. Don't miss it!

We will also have a selection of other items from our pool of creative family and friends! Our daughter in law Jenn makes wonderful hand lettered cards, stickers and posters, our long time employee, Dave, makes really creative toys and cutting boards, our friend Roy makes cool wooden i-pad stands and other stuff. You won't want to miss out on some nice gifts for mom!
