When I did my review of Marie-Noelle Bayard’s crochet book yesterday I promised I’d be quoting the great preface here on the blog. Here is the first of my fave quotes from that book:

“Whenever “hand made” makes yet another come-back, crochet is in the forefront because – in contrast to knitting or lace-making – no machine can reproduce the effect of hand-worked crochet. Crochet itself is a guarantee that real handcrafts will always be sought after”.

Amen!!
