As a homeschooling mom to a 12-year-old boy, Jaymi Horne loves living in Carmel and having so many of her relatives nearby. She has been married for 20 years, and she and her husband are close with multiple relatives in Lawrence and Indianapolis.
Home has always loved crafting, and she has been a seamstress for nearly two decades. Some of Home’s creations include quilts and custom wedding gowns. She also has designed her own original quilt patterns, and custom pieces are sold in her Etsy store.
She also loves crocheting, knitting and tatting (a lace-making technique). During the COVID-19 pandemic, Home has worked 80-hour weeks and handmade more than 4,000 cloth masks for neighbors through the NextDoor app.
