For today’s 2013 Awesome Crochet Blogger Awards I’d like to give an award for the best crochet newsletter. This year’s crochet award goes to Talking Crochet.

About this Awesome Crochet Blog Award

Good crochet newsletters are like a mixture somewhere between a crochet blog and a crochet magazine. They are delivered regularly to your email inbox and bring with them inspiration, sales, patterns, deals, crochet news and lots of information. That’s worth recognizing!

Why the Winning Blog Won

The Talking Crochet Newsletter comes out regularly (every other week) so you can always count on it. Each issue is like a mini-magazine of its own, with a letter from one of the newsletter editors (Gwen Blakley Kinsler and Dora Ohrenstein), a page of crochet news and how-to’s, a free crochet pattern, a letter from a reader and more. The newsletters can also be accessed online so it’s easy to share their information on social media and read through the archives.

This Blog Previously Won …

I haven’t previously included Talking Crochet in my annual awards roundup. Each year there are only about 30 sites that get these awards so I can’t get to everyone and in the first years I really wanted to recognize the smaller, less well-known sites first. Talking Crochet, affiliated with crochet magazine Crochet World, has a wider reach but I’m glad to celebrate the great work they do with their newsletter.

Special Thanks

Although it didn’t affect my choice of award winner in any way I want to say thanks again to Talking Crochet for supporting my work by sharing information about Crochet Saved My Life and Hook to Heal.
