Jessica was juggling several jobs to make ends meet – from providing care to an elderly neighbor as well as cooking for special events. When jobs were no longer available or consistent, she began looking into other employment opportunities. The consistent employment at KNOWN SUPPLY allows Jessica to balance her work and home life, leading to an increase in her happiness. She has learned a great deal, and she hopes to start her own business in the future.

Thank you so much for the beautiful mint green scarf you made. I am a mentor to a 10 year old girl, and I was showing it to her. She said..."Oh, look at the detail." So she was also impressed!

I live where it gets very cold in the winter with lots of wind and snow... and so I dress with lots of layers and always use a scarf. So I will always think of you when I use it!
Thank you so much!!!

Dear Jessica,
Thank you for the incredible hat you made me. My auntie gave it to me for Easter. It is grey, black, white and orange and is branded volcom x krochet kids. I am wearing it a lot now because it is winter in Australia. It is my favourite beanie. I am seven years old and I thank you for your effort and craftsmanship in making it. I hope making hats gives your family opportunities to do every thing you want to. I wish your family happiness, love and a good life. I have a very good life in Australia and have a very happy family. Next time anyone in my family is looking to buy a hat or scarf I will suggest they buy one from you. Thanks again you are a great hat maker.

Dearest Jessica,

I saw your name on the beautifully made Amor Beanie you knit for me and looked up your story on KK's website. You inspire me. Your hard work and dedication, your endurance in the face of difficult times— these things spur me to want to be a better person, to love fearlessly and to love fiercely. Thank you so much for the passion you so clearly put into your work! I pray that you would be blessed, that you would know how much God loves you & that you would enjoy His love, peace and mercy. Your beautiful craftsmanship warms my head, and your story warms my heart. May God bless you! Much love, Melanie Melgar

Hi Jessica- I received a hat you made for Sevenly - it is purple and says "amor" I got it for Valentine's Day and even though I'm currently living in St. Thomas, I wear it all the time. Thank you for making something so beautiful. Every time I put it on, it makes me smile. Also, I just spoke to my best friend, Sola this morning. She was born and raised in Peru and so it made me think to send you this email finally! Hope you are well and happy. Keep making beautiful things. Erin

Thank you so much for making my Amor! beanie. It's absolutely beautiful and I am head over heals in love with it. You're an amazing woman and I love the fact that you watch cartoons with your children. You touched my heart and I hope to one day do something like you! You're very talented, special, and incredibly beautiful. I'm hoping to convince my mom to buy another one of your awesome products! Best of wishes in all you do!

Jessica! Wow what an honor to meet you! You knitted a beautiful "Amor!" beanie for me and I'm absolutely in love with it! I sincerely appreciate the time, hard work, and effort you put into this beanie and wearing it will always remind me of the woman in Peru who enjoys watching cartoons with her family. Quisiera ofrecerte algo mas alla de las gracias, pero soy una madre soltera y tengo que cuidar el dinero jajaja. aun asi, espero comprar mas productos de esta compania y tambien de ti en el futuro, voy a empezar a ahorar un dinerito del cheque de trabajo pronto. Until then, take care <3

With love,

I ordered an Amor! Beanie from Sevenly made by you and want to thank you very much for your work! I love my beanie and it is keeping me warm during this exceptionally cold winter Texas is experiencing!
Visiting grandparents was always a favorite part of growing up for me, too. Definitely not as interesting as doing so in a jungle, though :). Love & light!
Thank you,
