Jill A Winitzer has been creating wearables forever! She learned how to use a sewing machine from her brother, who used to repair the family machine that her mother used.
She made doll clothes, and clothes for herself, and finally Halloween costumes for her kids. Jill took up knitting (her grandmother was an expert) after college.
When her son was 10, she watched his football practice, nervously, and started knitting with unique yarns from around the world. That became her knitted necklaces. She added winter wear neck warmers for kids and adults, along with baby blankets and afghans.
Additionally, she pulled out the old sewing machine and started making reversible bandana bibs, bloomers, wands, etc.
Gotta keep those hands busy!
