crochet discussions Friday Open Crochet Discussion

If you’re here on the blog for Hooked Together, don’t worry … it’s still showing up on Fridays but it goes live later in the day now. That’s because the first post of the day on Friday is going to be a discussion post where you can share your thoughts on a topic of the week.

About Discussion Posts

I value what my readers have to say and think that your voice can contribute a lot of knowledge to this blog. Each Friday I’ll post a thought or question that I believe is pertinent to crocheters today. It’s a chance for you to share your thoughts and opinions on the topic. You can just say what’s on your mind about it or you can respond to other people’s comments and thoughts. Always feel comfortable sharing your thoughts but also use common sense in making it clean, respectful and nice to everyone in the group.

Today’s Discussion Topic: Crochet in Chain Stores

Crochet clothing has recently seen a resurgence in popularity. There are terrific designers doing cool things with crochet, both on the runway and in crochet magazines and blogs. It’s been great for independent crochet designers but there’s a flip side. Many chains, ranging from Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters are carrying crochet items. This presents a number of possible issues and problems but also some benefits.

What do you think are the biggest issues (pros and cons) related to chain stores selling crochet? I have some thoughts but I’ll chime in later in the day. Discuss!
