Hi, I’m Randi. You can call me Randi Jo if you like. I am the maker, the seamstress, the reluctant boss. I love to sew and I love to ride bikes. I can sew really well but I can’t ride no hands on a bike. The business is run out of a 10’ x 22’ trailer my Dad built right next to our house on 15 acres in tiny rural Elkton, Oregon. It’s where I grew up and where my family has called home for 5 going on 6 generations. We are a Mom and Pop business raising two kids and investing in our community.
I’m Eric, the wearer of many caps at RJF; packager, bartacker, taker of photographs, and answer a bunch of emails, etc... I credit myself as the founder of the business by coercing Randi into making a pair of knickers for Rick at Hunter Cycles as a thank you for building her a custom frame, then pressuring her into making more and pedaling them at cyclocross races around the Monterey Bay area. Sorry, Randi does not want to make knickers ever again.
Hi! I’m Sam, the third musketeer! I handle the sharp parts of sewing. Or at least the cutting out. Lots of swinging large bolts of fabric around and looking for pens that will still write on canvas. Not much to say except that I wasn’t a hat person until I started working with Randi. I now have seven that I wear on a regular basis. When not helping with color choices, hardware installation, IT, and some packaging, I juggle my other fiber passions: doll making, spinning (as in yarn, not on a stationary bike), weaving, and knitting.
