Susanna Lewis had a few items featured in vintage crochet books from the 1970s and 1980s. She’s a designer I want to know more about. Do you?
In last week’s edition of 1970s crochet designers I profiled Mark Dittrick and mentioned that he had co-authored some crochet books with another designer of the era: Susan Morrow. Let’s learn more about Morrow now.
I’ve mentioned Mark Dittrick before because he’s the author of a vintage crochet book I adore, Hard Crochet. I thought it would be fun to explore a little bit more about this designer for my series on 1970s crochet artists.
Nicki Hitz Edson, co-author of Creative Crochet, was the reason that I started my ongoing series about 1970s crochet designers. Here’s a profile of her work.
Janet Karpeck has designs featured in two of the main books I use for my research into 1970s crochet designers.
Mona Mauri is a multi-medium artist working in fiber, ceramics and digital art. She was part of the 1970s New York wearable art movement and shared some thoughts with me about that time.
Dina Knapp (possibly previously Dina Schwartz) was a 1970s wearable art crocheter who did unique work with texture, tapestry and color. She continues to work in crochet as well as collage art today.
