I would also like to mention that I love being a member of the
I am a Professional member, I am also a junior reviewer for the Masters Of Crochet Program.
I am so looking forward to this years 20 Year Celebration of the CGOA.
Manchester, NH July 23rd - 27th
I hope I get to see you there.
I love talking and sharing crochet with others
My Mantra is
A Good design should inspire others to grow with their crochet skills. It is by this growth of skills that the world of crochet thrives and moves forward into the future.
And DON”T tell me it’s all been done before. I refuse to believe it.
It’s admitting defeat before you even try when we think like this.
The number of combinations of stitches is endless.
What we do with these combinations is also endless.
So let our design be truly creative and joyful.
Now when I say challenges for today's crocheters, I mean something to take you out of your comfort zone.
Maybe a pattern that takes you past the stitches you know on to stitches you haven’t tried before. Maybe a new technique or a new way of looking at how things are constructed. Never done crochet in the rnd, Try it.
Try Something to help your skills grow. Something to make you feel wonderful when you have accomplished it.
Don’t worry there is someone out there that is more than willing to help you learn a new skill, and new stitch, a new technique. The Internet is a great resource.
It is so easy to crochet what we know. The stitches the styles, the tried and true.
But we don't grow with our crochet if that is all we do.
When you find yourself finishing something that made you stop, think, and learn you will be so proud of yourself.
What a great feeling.
I am not just talking about crocheters either, but about the whole world of crochet too.
I believe the industry is at a cross roads. With the world at our fingertips via the Internet the standard fare offered needs to look to the future or be left behind. We now see what is offered throughout the world and some of it is truly inspiring. What wonderful tools are now available to make great designs more accessible than ever before. Hopefully the industry will keep pace with this new world of pattern availability and they can help our crocheters of today and of the future step up and forward in the wonderful world of crochet. When individual crocheters grow the whole world of crochet grows.
We can all grow,
And for me that is what makes it all fun.
