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. She brings in her knowledge of child development to ensure the children making her crafts benefit from each one in targeted ways—be that through mini STEM lessons or using certain materials to help build fine-motor skills. 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!
