"A glass pitcher, a wicker basket, a tunic of coarse cloth. Their beauty is inseparable from their function. Handicrafts belong to a world existing before the separation of the useful and the beautiful."
Julie, Jessica & Ashley
- The Birchberry Team -
What started off in 2015 as a handmade cloth diaper venture, has now transformed into a fiber arts adventure! We have recently relaunched with a new line of handmade products, including beanies, scarves, ear warmers and more to come with each changing season. We are a mother/daughter team who turned our favorite hobby into a small business.
Julie (mother) learned to crochet at 9 years old from her own mother and eventually passed down the skill to Ashley (eldest daughter) and Jessica (youngest daughter) when they were young girls. Ashley later taught herself to knit with the help of online tutorials and in return, taught her mother, Julie, the skill in 2014.
All three women share the task of making the products offered at Birchberry. Each of them also have their own role in helping things run smoothly. Jessica helps with the design process and ensuring the quality of each product. Ashley maintains all social media, website & packaging aspects of the business while Julie handles shipping and meeting for local pickup.
