About Jill Wiseman:
When talking about Jill Wiseman Designs you need to know the people behind the business. They are what make this shop different from all of the others. At Jill Wiseman Designs there is a mother and daughter team.
Think about the obsession that you have with yarn. How you love to touch it, look at it, organize it. That is exactly how Jill and her mom feel about beads.
June retired from her day job in 2012 and continues to work for Tapestry Beads, but now she can do it in her pajamas. She is known around the house as “The Staff” and “The Shipping Department”, and “The Employee of the Month/Year/Decade”. Her employee benefits also include daily naps if so desired, and she gets to bring her dogs and cats to work. In the living room.
Jill escaped her day job in 2002 and has been designing and teaching ever since. She travels around the country quite a bit and whines when she’s gone that she missed the fur babies. And then when she’s home, she whines that she misses the bead ladies. And she never does laundry unless she’s out of all clothes.
Jill Wiseman Designs:
At Jill Wiseman Designs their goal is to bring you great new designs, great products, and to make beading easy and fun.
