Hailing from a long line of artists, crafters and make-do-and-menders, Jessica grew up enjoying several different creative outlets. As an adult this has translated into her finding any excuse to create daily. She has worked on Sew News, Creative Machine Embroidery, and Sew It All magazines and Sew It All TV. When not stitching, Jessica can be found walking her tiny dog, seeking out delicious tacos, and playing all sorts of games in Portland, Oregon.
