Meet the Winner
I grew up with a love of crochet and crafting from my mother and grandmother, who both had a hand in teaching me to crochet. My mother was left-handed, so it was a bit of a challenge at first, but with the additional help of my grandmother, and my intense desire to learn the craft, it has blossomed into one of my greatest passions in life. I love the creative process, and I hope that my designs inspire others to make my designs and spark their creativity as well. My family is a great source of encouragement and they can’t wait to see what I come up with next.
I have been crocheting since the age of 12, and have been designing on and off for over 30 years, which has now become my full time profession. I feel very blessed to do what I love every day as my work at home job. I live in a small rural country area in Ohio with my husband of 37 years, Darby. I hope to inspire all the crafters out there to pursue their crafting and crocheting dreams, and together we can keep the art of crochet alive and well forever.
