Welcome to My Only Sunshine! I’m Jess, mom to one amazing little girl, wife to a pretty cool husband, coffee addict, and yarn aficionado. I have an associate’s degree in business administration, a bachelor’s degree in business, management, and economics, and I spent 9 years working in various roles at a community bank, before becoming a stay at home mom and dedicated maker.

My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was very young, and I have around 25 years of experience in crocheting. I love trying new yarns and patterns, and creating my own patterns when inspiration strikes. Some of my favorite themes in my projects is making wearable for my daughter and geeky accessories for our home.

In July 2018 our family took a chance and moved 400 miles from Western New York to Virginia. I made the tough decision to close my business, to have more time to focus on family. New patterns will continue to be added occasionally, and I hope you will continue to enjoy the efforts of my hobby projects.
