Creative Tradition: The Mother-Daughter Team

Our family has always celebrated life's big and little moments with handmade quilts, clothes, keepsakes, and recipes. Now we'd like to share these treasures and their stories with you and your family.

Jeanine is great at executing projects. Give her a pattern, instructions or recipe and she'll follow it to the letter. Give Jenn the same pattern, instructions or recipe and she'll get the gist of things and start making improvements.

Jenn is great at designing projects. Give her an idea, a photo, a quote, a piece of fabric and she'll make you whatever you asked for as well as some extra things you never thought of. Give Jeanine the same idea or photo and she'll find a pattern.

That's what makes our team so great. When Jennifer is up in the clouds dreaming of all the creative possibilities Jeanine is there to ground us. And when Jeanine gets stuck with a problem, Jenn is there to think a way around it.
