Welcome to hooks & sunshine! I’m Jess, mom to one amazing little girl, wife to a pretty cool husband, coffee addict, and yarn aficionado. 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 wearables 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 My Only Sunshine, to have more time to focus on family. I’m back to blog, share my makes, and develop new patterns as hooks & sunshine. My new goal is to spread the love of creation with fiber arts, rather than just the love of the finished object. Taking the time to make every stitch with love ❤
