Shannon, Juno, Ellinor and Aisha

Shannon, who has been weaving for over 20 years, was always fascinated by her Swedish grandmother’s stories of working the flax fields, spinning the linen and weaving wonderful handmade goods. Now with her two nieces; Ellinor, whose colour sense is unparalleled, and Aisha, whose attention to detail results in exquisite finished product, the NorthSide Girls have started a small craft house that produces handwoven goods on Edmonton’s north side.
