About Blue Feather Products
Blue Feather Products manufactures innovative tools designed to solve simple but annoying problems that confront us every day. Feather and John King started the company in 1980. Our unique products are primarily the result of Feather’s creativity meeting her frustrations. Remember that old saying, “necessity is the mother of invention”? Feather, a lifelong seamstress, cook and baker, spends her work time designing these tools. When she is annoyed that something is not easy to manage or more functional, she thinks, visualizes and networks until she finds the solution which simply and efficiently gives a solution. Grabbit Magnetic Pincushion, which created a niche to handle sewing pins in an entirely new way, the round BobbinSaver for controlling sewing machine bobbins, the new MyPad for Needles to store partially used sewing machine needles, and many more tools appreciated in home sewing and quilting, are examples of Feather’s and Blue Feather Products’ work. See these products now at the Grabbit Sewing Tools website. Blue Feather Products now sells an expanding selection of magnets and magnetic holders and unique storage aids. Our website also temporarily has a selection of sewing pins, paper clips, envelopes and universal cleaning cloths that have been used in various projects, while they last.
Meet Our Wonderful Team
Feather - Our President and Fearless Leader
Feather is the women behind the curtain, so to speak. Feather works tirelessly to create new and innovative products for our company. At the same time, Feather is always looking into ways to make our existing lines better. Feather is the epitome of a perfectionist and all our products reflect this spirit. When Feather isn't working on Blue Feather Products, she is tucked away in her sewing room working on projects for her beautiful daughter Hilary, or out shopping for the latest outdoor gear with her wonderful son Owen. To relax both John and Feather enjoy watching the latest BBC TV series.
John - Our Vice President and First Mate
John is our so called first mate and makes sure that Blue Feather Products keeps on course. Without John, we would have a whole lot of products with nowhere to go. John does the books and projections, makes sure we enough material, and works on the multitude of complex paperwork associated with owning a business. On the rare occasion John isn't at his desk into the late hours of the night, he enjoys immersing himself in historical and political novels. He can also often be found tracking the travels of his daughter Hilary, feeding Rugby the dog, and rooting for the home team and sometimes will even venture to San Fransisco to see the Giants play with his son Owen.
Yvonne - Office Manager and Master of All Things
To say Yvonne "does it all" would be an understatement of epic proportions. Because, really, she can and does, do it all. From being our master accountant, to being in charge of all orders and shipments, to making sure the dog gets his biscuit in the morning, Yvonne really is the Master of All Things in our office. Her diligence and work ethic keeps the office in shape, and we would truly be lost without her. Not to mention her sense of humor keeps us all going when things are stressful. When Yvonne isn't busy being the Master of All Things, she loves to be out fishing, and she loves to show off her catch even more. If she isn't on the lake, she is hanging out with her four children and adorable grandson.
Ashley - Marketer, Graphic Designer, Web Guru, and Comic Relief
Ashley likes hats and she wears many of them! Ashley is in charge of Blue Feather Product's marketing and websites. In between the marketing and web design, she helps Feather with the many different graphic design needs of the business. Ashley also works hard to keep us up on the latest technology and does her best to make sure it all runs smoothly. Most importantly, however, her tendency towards extreme klutziness gives us all a reason to laugh. When Ashley isn't glued to her computer, she is out running around with her fiancé ,playing in the great outdoors or relaxing watching her extremely large collection of cartoon movies. Her favorite movie is, of course, Finding Nemo.
