meet the maker.

Welcome to Midwest Nest Handmade!

Jessi is the designer and creator behind Midwest Nest Handmade.  Taught by her Grandma Faye, Jessi has been crocheting for over 30 years! For years, she has gifted her work: for Christmas, baby showers, weddings and birthdays.

Through the years, she has also learned to knit, work with polymer clay and a variety of other mediums.  She's also learned to keep tiny humans alive.

Jessi has lived in Wisconsin most of her life, which is exactly where you will find her today!  She is a mom to two of her favorite humans.  She works full time in IT, volunteers her time with a variety of youth organizations, coordinates a large local makers market, and is involved in She Stands Tall, a local women entrepreneur group. 

Each piece you find on Midwest Nest Handmade is made in her home studio in any "free" time she has.

You can email Jessi at any time: Please allow 3-5 business days for a thoughtful response.
