Hi! Thanks for taking a minute to learn about Shinysun's Cross Stitching!
My name is Dawn Jachim and I currently operate SCS out of my home in North Canton, Ohio. We are a family owned business that started at the beginning of 2005 for 2 reasons...
The first and most important reason is my wonderful, loving, 25 year old son, Ryan. Way back on July 10, 2003, at the age of 5, he was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes. He was, and still is the type of diabetic that never has stable blood sugar levels. Because of this, he has been labeled a 'brittle diabetic' by his endocrinologists and other team of Drs. At that time and still to this day, Ryan receives anywhere from 4 to 6 injections of insulin daily. Most days he only receives insulin first thing in the morning, with all meals, and at bedtime. I had spent such a great deal of my time caring for him and his condition that I was unable to work outside of the home. So, I had to make good use of what spare time I had and started cross stitching again, an amazing skill that my mother taught me how to do when I was only 5 years old....
That brings us to the second reason. I obviously had some time on my hands and started to look around to find good quality cross stitch patterns that weren't cartoonish, samplers, or houses with just trees that were all back stitched and flowers that were all french knotted. Due to the limited availability of Craft / Embroidery stores, no matter where I looked (I covered 5 states trying) and with over 35 years of cross stitching experience at the time, I was tired of those typical run of the mill patterns. So, I began to look at a variety of things on the Internet and an idea began to unfold! 😲
It was then that Shinysun's Cross Stitching was born and began to take shape!!!! 🤗
