Nora Nalle

Nora Nalle received a BA from Hampshire College in youth development and creative writing. Her work experience as a head teacher for a 3s-4s class lends itself to producing crafts designed especially for kids.

Nora's past work experience as a craft stylist for All You Magazine has helped her develop her own crafting style, and write up easy-to-follow instructions. Her crafts are fun and achievable by anyone!
