Handmade Family started in 2010 when Jeffrey left a nine to five, design job to be a stay-at-home dad and freelance illustrator and designer. Filling a need in our daily lives, Amy started making baby blankets to wrap our newborn daughter in, we soon realized that other people may want one of these awesome blankets. Using our backgrounds in art and education, as well as the experience of daily life with two bright, active girls we started making things that encourage comfort, imaginative play, role-play and problem solving.
Amy’s sewing and embroidery machines are constantly humming. Whether it’s crafting super hero capes, bean bag games, extra large and snuggly receiving blankets, or carry bags for Jeffrey’s story-starter chips, she loves to create things that bring joy and comfort.
Jeffrey’s talents include illustration, watercolor painting, and woodcrafts, just to name a few. With a Bachelor of Fine Arts in printmaking, he left the 9-5 world of graphic desin to answer a higher calling…that of stay-at-home-dad and creative freelancer.
