Many of us who crochet do exactly that during this time of year (and all year long) when we infuse hand-crafted items with our attention and then donate them to local or national charities.
he winner of this award is Natalia Kononova of Outstanding Crochet. She is a Philadelphia based crochet designer (originally from Saint Petersburg) who is also passionate about photography.
This specific award is for the best mixed media crochet business. I love when there are businesses that combine different crafts with crochet to create something unique. It adds a different element to our community and inspires us all to stretch our ideas of the craft a bit.
This specific award is for the best promotion of the crochet community. What I mean by this is that it goes to the blogger who has done the best job of using her blog to promote others in the crochet community in a variety of different ways.
The winner of this award is Felted Button. This blog was launched a couple of years ago by Susan Carlson who says it’s intended “to share my love of all things colorful, vintage and yarny with the world!”
In this case, it’s all about collaboration so there are ten bloggers named for this award, all contributing to the same single collaborative project. I love the sense of community, sharing and connectedness that goes into a big collaborative multi-blog project.
