I lovingly design timeless patterns in soft, romantic color palettes to evoke feelings of warmth & wonder.  Taking cues from my love of nature and the countryside, gardening, farmhouses and flea market treasures; my hope as a designer is to create art celebrating everyday magic


I’m Jackie MacDonald of Sweetfire Road.  I’m a surface pattern designer living in coastal Maine with roots in the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia.  I create bespoke artwork for fabric and products.   I am delighted to be a fabric designer for Moda Fabrics + Supplies.

I love to create beautiful things for home. Celebrating the magic of the seasons and making my home a comforting haven for both me and my family is my favorite pastime.

So, when designing, I take cues from things that make me feel warm and welcome; especially Mother Nature and her color palette. Seasonal treats such as jewel-toned pumpkins in the fall and freshly colored Easter eggs in the spring make me so ridiculously happy and nostalgic for days gone by.  And little mementos from family adventures like feathers, rocks, shells and pressed flowers are treasures and a constant source of inspiration.

My intent as a designer is to nurture your home with patterned art that exudes natural beauty, comfort, and a touch of wonder. To create artwork that inspires lovely garments, quilts, decor and cherished keepsakes fills my heart with such joy.
