Here's hoping you were treated lovingly on St. Valentine's Day. Crocheters the world over love making hearts for others, but we deserve a treat for ourselves once in a while as well. What fun that every month has a holiday that can be celebrated in crochet. March is particularly special because it is National Crochet Month. Read about how it got started and enjoy news from our readers as well as our free pattern for you!
Lastly, it is my pleasure to introduce my colleague in crochet, Dora Ohrenstein, as the newest co-editor of this newsletter. Her first newsletter will go live on March 12, and she comes to Talking Crochet with a wealth of experience as a writer and author of many pattern books. A crochet-fashion specialist, Dora has traveled extensively to the far corners of the world searching for crocheters and their traditions of crochet. I hope her perspective on crochet the world over will bring you many hours of reading pleasure!
