About NorthStarHounds

Sales 1,263
On Etsy since 2019

A dog lover who is passionate about uplifting her community while giving back to those in need!

I started this business on a whim: I was working full-time, and found myself itching for a creative outlet that would give me a break from the endless hours spent starting at my computer sending tons of emails. I had always enjoyed sewing, and finding myself having 3 dogs (including my foster fail Newfoundland!) decided to try my hand at making fun, beautiful bandanas for them.

I never expected the incredible support I received once I decided to launch them as a business - as if I ever doubted that dog lovers are the most passionate, supportive, and incredible community out there! Soon, my casual hobby turned into a full-fledged business and I couldn't be more grateful, or more proud of where this little business has gone in the year it's been in existence.

I love putting together new patterns for my nonprofit collection, where I frequently raise funds for local animal shelters such as Minnesota Newfoundland Rescue (where I volunteer & adopted my 7-year-old Newf, Flash) and Retrieve a Golden of the Midwest (where I volunteer on the marketing team). It's important to me to give back to the amazing local community, and to do my part in making a difference for those dogs in need and to support the incredible efforts of rescue volunteers.

Thank you for making my dream a reality; I couldn't do it without you!
