About

Welcome to Branch & Vine Handmade! My name is Jen and I live in beautiful Northwest Washington with my husband and two children. I am a home-based sewist who lovingly creates custom quilts, bags, clothing, gifts, and more. It all started with a hand-me-down sewing machine. My grandmother was a quilter, but degenerating eyesight kept her from being able to sew. I had just given birth to my second child and had recently ended my part-time employment outside the home to face the new challenges of caring for two young kiddos. Although both my mother and grandmother sewed, I never really took much interest. I was more of a sporty, active girl and didn't consider myself creative or artistic... at all. My best friend sewed the most amazing bags, clothes, etc. and I felt inspired and encouraged by her to give sewing a try now that I was confined... oops, I mean... spending more time at home. To my surprise, I LOVED it. A few months into my sewing journey I took a quilting class at my local quilt shop and was truly hooked. I found that I was creative and probably had been all along; I just hadn't discovered my medium until now. I don't work in paints or charcoals... I work in fabric! I love experimenting with color, shape, pattern, and scale. I love the graphic nature of quilting and the juxtaposition of artistic design in useful, everyday items. Art that you can wrap yourself up in with a book and a coffee? Yes, please! Six years after my first stitch, I decided I was ready to share my work on a larger scale, both digitally and tangibly. With much encouragement from family and the best friend who first inspired me, Branch & Vine Handmade was born.
