Check out the new issue (Spring 2014) of Interweave Crochet and you can find my Everyday Crochet column on page 54. In this issue I introduce you to Sabrina Benton, an Arizona-based crocheter who crafts to help others. She sells her crochet each year to raise money for the Relay for Life of Sun City, which benefits the American Cancer Society.
You’ve actually briefly met Sabrina here on the blog before. In my article on 10 smart ways to organize crochet hooks I shared that she uses a soft pencil case for her storage. She says: “It is the perfect size for my hooks, a small pair of scissors, stitch markers, a tape measure and a six inch ruler. I can just dump it in my tote with my current project when I am out and about.”
Some other things she’s shared here:
- Sabrina likes crocheting for “Anyone who appreciates what they are given, I don’t think I have a favorite muse at this time. It is all about who I am in the mood to make something for that day.”
- She has crocheted “some amigumuri, but I did not get pictures of them before I gifted them. I made a bride and groom that stand about 4 inches tall, very cute and the little girl I gave them to has them on her desk.”
- And when asked how she’d celebrate National Crochet Month (which is March, in case you didn’t know!) Sabrina said, “I think I celebrate every month by talking about my crafting. For many it is still “uncool” or “weird” but I don’t shy away from letting people know that I crochet.”
