Hi friends, I’m Jewell and I’m the owner of NorthKnits Handmade Knitwear. I began knitting in college during my quiet prayer time as a way to battle anxiety and depression. In 2014, I launched NorthKnits on Etsy with my shop name as my spiritual acronym and reminder to need obey rejoice and thank Him (Christ).
The vision for my shop is centered on authentic handmade knitwear & genuine prayer. Seeing so many of us chase our maker dreams, compelled me to begin an amazing maker movement known as Our Maker Life, with four of my now lifelong maker friends. As OML’s founder, my team and I have connected with more than 61,000 makers globally through our OML events, blog and Make print books.
In the plainest sense, I’m just a girl seeking God through knitting & crochet – but NorthKnits and OML has not only made me a better maker, but a better woman, and for that (plus all the cozy!) keeps my heart so full and grateful.
