“I didn’t appreciate how much work it was and how much she did for me my whole life. My mom hemmed our clothes, made bridesmaids dresses for my sister’s weddings, and made hats, mittens, and scarfs for the family”, says Justina Bird.
Justina and her mother have taken that talent for knitting and sewing and started J Bird Crafts. Hats, scarves, mittens, cowls, blankets, towels, and pillowcases are among the items they knit and sew. Typically they can knit two hats each day. Most of their time is spent preparing. “That time goes fast when spent with family,” states Justina.
“This helps me relax from my stressful full-time job, and I get to spend time with my mom” states Justina. Justina expanded her business by learning ‘wire wrapping’ through a community education course she and her mother attended. “My mom and I take great pride in giving back.” We donate fire retardant pillowcases to the Farmington Fire Department, and sock/t-shirt hats and scarves to local cancer patients," says Justina.
J Bird Crafts promote through Facebook, word of mouth, neighborhood signs, and home events. To host a home event, you can contact Justina on Facebook at JBird Crafts or call her at 612.968.4904.
