Hi! I'm Shawna.
I'm so glad you're here! I'm honored to share this space in creativity with you.
I'm a homeschooling momma of 3, living her best life in Lincoln, NE. I've been a crafter for as long as I can remember (think mud pies).
Punch needle came to me at the best time. As a stressed momma with never enough time, crafting was non-existent. Sitting in front of a sewing machine for hours was no longer plausible, nor enjoyable (hello if I'm going to spend time on myself, why give myself a backache huddled over a sewing machine).
I think a little part of me died. That space of creativity, the joy of making something, being proud of a finished project.
When I found Punch Needle, I found myself wanting to get back in the crafting game. And I'm so glad I did. Punch needle is by far the easiest, most relaxing craft I've ever tried. I even do it before bed to help me fall asleep. I was immediately hooked. And I'm certain you will be, too.
Punch needle is easy to learn, forgiving of mistakes and it's done with yarn. I'm not sure I need to say much more, but I'm gonna anyway. Yarn is amazingly beautiful. It's basically making art with texture. Texture, your art will pop out in the warmest, fuzziest yarns and look way cool. And not only that, but you can basically do whatever you want with it. Make pillows, sewing it into a purse, make huge gigantic wall art, make small baby wall art, make a coat, make an iron on patch. The possibilities are endless.
And I think along the way, you'll learn you are an artist and you can create beautiful things. It's my mission to help you create beautiful art + feel alive in creativity.
Welcome to North Shore Crafts. I hope you have a pleasant stay.
PS. A few housekeeping items that I'd love for you to know. I strive to align my personal values with my business. One of those values important to me is less waste and no plastic. Here at North Shore Crafts we ensure plastic free packaging for all our products. And all our yarns are natural fibers. So you can enjoy more crafting and less waste!
