Jessie has been crocheting since her great grandmother first handed her a hook at the age of 8. She started off her professional life as a costume designer/creator/pattern maker. While managing the costume department for Adelphi University (in Long Island, NY) she was set up on a blind date with a Jersey boy. A few years later she found herself married and living in Jersey.
In 2007 she became a stay at home mom to twin girls. Shortly thereafter she started Jessie At Home as a way to share photos and stories of the girls with her family. Eventually she started adding crafty posts in, then patterns, and it just kept evolving until it became the fun crochet, knit, and family blog that it is today. Since then Jessie has earned several awards from the CGOA Design Competition. In 2013 Jessie started designing for others outside of Jessie At Home. She has had patterns published in various on and off line crochet and knit publications.
In addition to all things yarn related, Jessie enjoys just about all arts and crafts, playing games with her family, and watching Sci Fi.
