Jasmine DeFreitas: Girl Friday
Jasmine is Elizabeth's Right Hand Woman and tries her best to keep Beth on track with her many projects. A constant whirlwind with the many hats, she’s often somewhere different every day unless it’s a Friday or a Saturday, where you will find her “doing all the things” for Elizabeth Robinson Studio. She runs Nestwood, which specializes in woodworking and sewn items; she helps her husband with his remodel business and you’ll often find her at the schools in town because she is also a substitute teacher. A mother with a drive to learn, she’s often testing out some new technique or learning something new with her sewing machine, rarely still and rarely quiet you’ll find her always doing something- even if it is her day “off.” Her son is her constant inspiration and she’s often bouncing off him for new ideas- you never know what a six-year-old can come up with after all. If that wasn’t enough, she’s a self-proclaimed nerd, and usually has some reference or gaming item around her while she works and makes her passions come to life in one way or another
