Aprile Mazey of The Steady Hand started crocheting when she was pregnant with her daughter and started blogging in 2011. She says on her site’s about page: “I love to support fellow crafters and handmade artisans. I work with small business owners and large companies (including everyone in-between). I can help you with your social media campaigns and offer social media consulting.” Find her patterns on Craftsy, Etsy and Ravelry.
