About Jeanne Willis:

I grew up in Manhattan. That's Manhattan, NYC. I have always loved crafts and fiber arts. My father owned a sports wear design and manufacturing business in the garment district in NYC. He taught me the finer points of garment making and tailoring. I made my first dress at age six. 

My husband and I belong to the Society for Creative Anachronism ( where we learn about life during the middle ages. I design and make all of our garments and even his armour. I teach at many events that we attend.

We retired here in May 2015 with our five cats and two little dogs. We are down to one cat and two dogs. The cats were elderly rescues and all lived past 18.

We love living in Montana and especially Livingston.
