Hi, I'm Shari Borrowman with New Way Signs. Welcome to my online store!
I grew up on a farm in a rural area in Illinois. We didn't visit 'town' frequently so my friends were my animals. I discovered at an early age that I loved crafting. My mother was a 'farmer's wife' and had no idea about crafting. With no one to really show me what or how to create, I learned a lot on my own.
I am on the right with my sister at a local county fair where we showed cattle.
While in high school, I learned to sew from various people and even made all my homecoming and prom dresses. After high school, I had several clerical jobs and raised a family, and usually had a craft in the makings.
In 2008, my nephew was selling his vinyl sign business and I jumped on the chance to purchase. He already had many local accounts and even some standing orders. I've done many large metal signs, lettered trucks, vans and trailers, magnetics, banners, etc.
These are magnets I do for our local royalty. We have festivals in our county and they use these on the side of their vehicles in the parades.
This is one of the first large signs I did.
And then there's lots of fun stuff too....
But my real passion are my handmade craft items. I steer toward sentimental items and deeply enjoy what I do. I'm hoping I can create something for you!
