Hello Friends! I’m Shannon. I’m 33 years old and currently live in Cincinnati, Ohio. I’m happily married to the handsome man next to me, JB, who has helped support me in this new endeavor.
I was a 3rd grade teacher for 7 years. I decided to take a year off last year to travel to Ethiopia for a few weeks with a nonprofit called imagine1day. It was an amazing experience and I feel so lucky to have seen the beauty of the people and landscape. It will always hold a special place in my heart. My husband found an opportunity in Nairobi, Kenya at the same time to help start up businesses in the tech and mobile industry. This eventually led us to Cape Town, South Africa where we lived for 3 months. After six months in Africa, we are finally home and trying to figure out our next steps. I took another year leave of absence and decided to start this business.
My mom taught me how to sew when I was younger, however my sister and I decided it was time to refresh our skills after failing to wind a bobbin while watching a You Tube Video. Several classes later, I’ve found myself with a new sewing machine and an unhealthy fabric obsession.
The name Little Luvins was inspired by my 3-year-old niece, Aasta. She is incredibly empathetic and always asks if you need some “luvins” (pronounced “yuvins”) if you seem upset. I’ve decided to start this business with the hope of sharing my love for sewing and little ones and to give you some luvins to share with you and yours.
