Toen ik voor het eerst gestart met mijn serie over 1970 haak ontwerpers, Ik had nog nooit van James Walters en Sylvia Cosh gehoord. U verschrikkelijk haak liefhebbers snel vertelde me dat deze waren gehaakte ontwerpers en auteurs die ik nodig had om te weten!
In this post I’m rounding up all of the articles I shared featuring vintage, retro and 1970s crochet.
Did professional football player Rosey Grier really crochet in the 1970s? I’m not sure.
Despite all of the research I’d done into 1970s crochet this far, I’d never heard of Dona Meilach. I have no idea how that’s possible because as soon as I looked her up I discovered that she was a prolific author in all areas of craft writing, especially in the 1970s.
Rosey Grier was a professional football player who was also known for publishing a book in the 1970s called Needlepoint for Men.
Bonnie Meltzer was a 1970s crochet designer who does beautiful mixed media work today with wire crochet.
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?
