Meet the Broom Makers


Janelle Higdon

Master Broom-Maker

Janelle is our primary broom-maker and master of the broomshop. She spends the day hammer-in-hand, fulfilling orders and experimenting with new designs. Janelle has extraordinary organization skills that are constantly tested by Poppy, the broomshop kitten.

Anne has always had an affinity for traditional crafts. Hailing from rural Vermont, her grandmother taught her to knit at age seven, and she went on to study crafts at the University of St. Andrews. In her other life, Anne is a social worker with children and adolescents. She believes strongly in the importance of connection with craft traditions.
