Shannon & Jason are the DIY duo known as the Shibaguyz behind the design studio of Shibaguyz Designz and Shibaguyz Photography. The Shibaguyz specialize in fashion design, photography, and publishing services for the fiber arts community.
Shannon’s award winning crochet & knit designs have been featured in and on the covers of both US and international publications and he currently has over 300 published patterns credited to his name since his first design was featured on the cover of a magazine in 2010. Shannon has been teaching adults for 20+ years and is a Craft Yarn Council certified instructor. His quirky sense of humor and relatable teaching style have made him a sought after teacher in both local and national venues.
Jason is a professional fashion and portrait photographer whose fashion photography can be seen in many of the Shibaguyz’ pattern books including their latest book, Designer Crochet and in their upcoming title, Crochet Geometry. Jason also works as a freelance book-packaging designer for indie knitwear designers as well as major publishing companies like Sterling Publishing, Leisure Arts, Quayside, and Creative Publishing. Even though Jason loves his work in fashion and portrait photography, his work with four-legged models is some of his most “ooooh” and “ahhhh” inducing work.
Shibaguyz Designz has published 7 books of crochet and knitwear patterns including their latest title: Designer Crochet - 32 patterns to elevate your wardrobe from Sterling/Lark Publishing. Their pattern books specialize in patterns that fit a wide range of sizes from size small through 5X. Look for their NEW title: Crochet Geometry from Sterling/Lark Publishing available in wide distribution March 2016 and available for pre-order now online HERE and HERE.
Shannon and Jason live in Seattle, Washington with their three Shiba Inu who, more or less, support their ventures as long as enough time is taken for walks and treats.
