Meet the maker
Holyoke Puzzles grew out of Barbara Bitgood’s hobby of crafting unique hardwood jigsaw puzzles for friends and family. As requests for puzzles started to come in, Barbara decided to turn her pastime into a business in 2013. She created Holyoke Puzzles to share her custom designed, hand crafted puzzle art with a wider audience. Barbara designs, cuts and finishes each original wooden jigsaw puzzle in her home workshop in Massachusetts. Since 2020 she has focused most of her work on designing patterns for scroll saw enthusiasts and the CNC community, although she still sits down at the saw on occasion to produce wooden puzzles.
