I was very intrigued by Zenhya’s crochet work, something that she uses to enhance the other fiber arts and sculpture work that she does. I was thrilled when she agreed to do an interview with me.
This 15 minute video shows a group of yarnbombers crocheting (and doing a little bit of knitting).
I love Leslie Blackmon’s crochet art because it’s colorful, joyous and contains a great sense of humor. Here I get to share an interview with the artist about her work.
I really loved watching this video in which crafter Renaissance Austin does “live crocheting” in front of an audience.
I just really love this crochet video for its soothing, meditative nature. It is relaxing to watch this yarn in action. Take a few moments out of your day to be still and enjoy:
OttLite is a unique lighting brand that specifically works to bring a style of natural daylight indoors, offering many benefits over other indoor lighting. OttLite offers a series of tools specifically for crafters who can especially benefit from natural indoor lighting. I had the opportunity to try their Ultimate 3-in-1 Craft Lamp and found it to be a great all around option for working lamp-side crochet.
This is a guest post by Mari McCarthy who has written a book called Journaling Power: How To Create the Happy, Healthy, Life You Want to Live. Although not specific to crochet, it relates to many of the issues I care about in terms of using creative self-expression to heal yourself and improve your life. In my book, Hook to Heal, I share tips for keeping a crochet journal and exploring “yarn for thought” questions that are an aspect of journaling to heal. This dovetails nicely with what Mari shares here today.
I loved doing an interview with wire crochet artist Deanna Gabiga for the October 2016 issue of the magazine. A portion of our discussion was excluded from the article to accommodate word count parameters. Read that exclusive excluded portion here today!
