Snuggly Monkey began as a small handmade shop on Etsy. From a desire to find high quality supplies for my own handcrafted creations, Snuggly Monkey slowly evolved into a boutique craft supply shop. Since the fall of 2011, I have been searching far and wide to find exceptional suppliers that take pride in their work and produce the highest quality craft supplies available. If I would not use it in my own projects, I will not sell it in my shop. Snuggly Monkey is proudly based in Durham, North Carolina.
Snuggly Monkey is owned and operated by Claudia Martinez (that's me!), a work at home mom with a passion for creating. I started crafting when I taught myself how to cross stitch at age 8. From then on you could usually find me with a book in my hand and a crafty creation brewing in my mind. When I was pregnant with my first daughter, I learned how to turn on a sewing machine and it was love at first stitch. The love affair grew in the fall of 2009 when I discovered the modern quilting movement. Quilting, cross stitch and hand embroidery are my passions, but I love to dabble in wood crafting, painting, mixed media and outside the box experimentation.
When sourcing the supplies sold here at Snuggly Monkey, I look for a number of different things. Quality is my number one top priority. I believe that our handmade creations are our legacy, and they deserve to be made with supplies that honor the time and effort that goes into each creation. I try my best to purchase from reputable companies based in countries where their workers are paid fair wages and treated with respect. Ease of use is key because if a product is not fun to work with what is the point of using it?
