Crochet Cotizaciones

Algunas de las cosas que algunas personas inteligentes dijeron:

“Motifs are great traveling projects. Son tan pequeños que usted puede tejer a raya a casi cualquier cosa. Why yes I have crocheted at long red lights and in grocery store lines.”CrochetByFaye

“Crocheting is a tactile process: the yarn runs through your fingers as you hold it.”Stacey Trock

“She might have entered the endeavor merely with the hope of having something soft and snuggly to wear the next time she heads out in the cold, but she will likely walk away from it with the realization that the tiny, tinkering activity of her hands also works wonders for her mind. En otras palabras, she’ll be hooked.”Celia Barbour

“We use them to carry delicacies from the market or to hold our latest crochet projects, as purses or carryalls—well, to tell the truth, we use them for just about everything. I’m talking about crocheted bags. These brilliant accessories are not only fun to crochet but are also the perfect canvas to showcase your crochet skills.” - Toni Rexroat I also had a second quote from this CrochetMe writer: “Crochet is captivating in its beauty. Cientos de pequeños puntos de sutura se combinan en millones de posibles acuerdos para crear una final de una obra de arte final, whether it is a lace collar of intricate thread crochet or a simple hat to keeps a child’s ears warm.”

“I have created hundreds of garments and accessories with everything from indifferent craft acrylic to luxury cashmere, in every weight from lace to super bulky. I maintain that every yarn deserves good design. Even if it takes extraordinary effort, long nights of yarn whispering, cajoling and tussling, eventually every yarn must speak to me.”Doris Chan

“Knitters, crocheters, quilters and other crafters generously give the work of their hands to family, friends and charitable causes year-round. But during the holiday season it seems even easier to give.”Diseños de KN

“The thing I love most about crochet is the endless possibilities for projects. You aren’t restricted to making wearable items, craft items, household items, tote bags or purses. You can do it all.”Crochetbird

"Creo que las mujeres no se identifican necesariamente ganchillo o el bordado con el viejo papel de la ama de casa y por lo tanto se ven en cambio como otro medio accesible a través del cual los diseñadores y artistas puedan expresarse." – Yanina Schenkel

“Crochet has had more ups and downs than any other known form of handwork and has even been considered a lost art during many periods of time. Pero la nave ha demostrado ser invulnerables y siempre ha sobrevivido, even after long periods of almost complete stagnation.”Liz Blackwell

“The new year is a time for reflection for many of us. Crocheters are perhaps more reflective than most.”Inside Crochet

Crochet en Etsy

castaway collection 400x155 Then and Now in Crochet (12/16   12/31)

I interviewed Etsy shop owner Castaway Collections. This year I’m really loving the interviews done on the Castaway Collections website of photographers who work with creative handcrafted props.

diy crochet kit 400x300 Then and Now in Crochet (12/16   12/31)

I also did an Etsy treasury of black and white crochet items. It included this pretty necklace by Rosiescosies.

crochet rag rug 400x299 Then and Now in Crochet (12/16   12/31)

And I did a treasury showing the 12 most expensive crochet items on Etsy. This year it turns out that a lot of the items that come up in a search like this aren’t actually high priced. Sometimes people just want to show an example of their work and not list it for sale and one way to do that is to put a high price on it so that the item can be seen but not purchased. Por ejemplo, there is a beautiful trapo alfombra de ganchillo listed at $99,999 but it looks like it’s actually an example from a seller who really offers them for about $35. So always look twice at those high prices because they may be far more affordable than you think!
