Roseanna Beck

My name is Roseanna Beck, and I'm a 64-year-old homemaker. My husband and I have been married since 1978, and my favorite thing to do (after crafts, of course) is play the organ. I do a lot of crafts for various charities, and I am also a published designer in many magazines and books. I have crocheted and knitted for most of my life, but have only been designing for magazines and books for about 20 years.

I mainly design in crochet and plastic canvas, but I also knit and do needlepoint and latch hook. I have been crocheting and knitting since I was 7 years old. I learned from my best friend's grandmother who was in a wheelchair. Two of my friends and I would sit on her porch for an hour or so and have a lesson. First, of course, we did chains, and then she gradually taught us to make doilies and crochet around handkerchiefs; we worked with a size 13 hook, which I still have today. Eventually, I learned to make other things. It was a little harder for me at first because I am naturally left-handed and she was right-handed. Later in life I taught myself to crochet and knit right-handed as it was easier to follow patterns. I am proud to say I am the only one of my friend group who still uses this skill after all these years.
