Me-Made-May with Karyn!

Hello, May! nido welcomes May with open arms as crafters and creators celebrate Me-Made-May, a month-long commitment to wear our handmade garments. Participants pledge to wear handmade as a challenge to integrate those creations into daily life, complete unfinished projects, and encourage the handmade.

This May, we would like to introduce you to Karyn’s makes! Karyn is nido’s resident crocheter, who has pledged to include something handmade in her outfits 4 to 5 days a week. Take a peek at her creations as she continues to go strong with her goal.

Come by the shop and share your Me-Made-May wears with us, too!
