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.
Love of Crochet magazine has kindly sent me 5 issues of their lovely Special Holiday Issue to give away to my awesome readers.
Today I’m over at Skip to My Lou as part of the Bake Craft Sew & Crochet Along. I am sharing a crochet tutorial for an easy Christmas Tree Garland.
I have a mailing list for people who are interested in sharing their crochet stories with me and my readers. I am about to send out a list of interview questions to those people who want to do email interviews. It will be going out tomorrow so if this is something that interests you, sign up for that mailing list now. Not sure if you want to participate? Here are some of the FAQs that people have about sharing stories with me.
Katie Jones, a knitwear designer with a crochet collection that I adore. I learned about her from a post on @thegoodwardrobe about London Fashion Week.
After I published my book, Crochet Saved My Life, I started a Ravelry group of the same for people who wanted a safe space to share their stories about craft and healing. I loved that group and the people who started connecting there. I have recently had the offer of three generous volunteers who are going to help me moderate the group so that we can revitalize it and get it going again.
I’m taking a break from my usual crochet posts to share a sponsored post that is also close to my heart. It’s a post about the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
