  1. Try freecrochetpatterns.com
  2. Have you tried crochetpatterncentral.com? Or google "free crochet patterns"--that brings up many different sites.
  3. Welcome to the 'Ville! Glad to have you here!!
  4. Are you girls triplets??!!
  5. Ye I had LOTS of trouble figuring out how to get on the 'Ville!! Of course, I'm not the brightest bulb on the string when it comes to computers! But...I figured if I could get back on, ANYone could! ????
  6. It seems to me that the sudden loss of interest in Crochetville began when they had to redo everything. I know I had trouble finding it all again, and still am not really quite sure of what I'm doing here...maybe there are others out there wondering where Crochetville went???
  7. Thanks bunches for sending the pattern, Mary Jo!! Happy Thanksgiving!
  8. Thanks for sharing this! I teach Crochet, and we make only projects for donation. This will be perfect! I've made several ocopi from a very similar pattern I found online. We sell many different crocheted items to help pay for our yarn.
  9. Mary Jo, the angels are SO cute!!! How many rows around do you make them? I'm thinking of making them for Christmas for quite a few friends and family! Also--what size hook and plastic ring? Thanks!
  10. My family doctor is only in her office on Thursday, also! I still think that's so odd!! Of course, I still remember when we could go to our dr's office any weekday--withOUT an appt. and get help! Things--they are a-changin', aren't they?! I guess people don't get sick on any other days than Thursday...???
  11. I LOVE your idea! I just had to buy 3 more hooks today--to replace some that my rocker digested! The bottom of the rocker is enclosed, so it isn't easy to retrieve my hooks!! One of these days, I can take the bottom off, retrieve my hooks (and needles!), and then I'll never have to buy another hook or needle--EVER AGAIN!!! Every time I think I have enough replacement-hooks, I lose one I no longer have replacements for!! (ARGH!!!)
  12. That address doesn't lead anywhere. Can you give us the link?
  13. Peggy--I tried that link but it didn't work! Is there another one?
  14. My crochet club and I just finished two craft shows--still have one to go. We always check the prices of our competitors, and so far, after 7 years of doing craft shows--we're still managing to stay within the prices of the others. I don't worry about having the same items as others have on display, because they're almost always made in different colors and sizes than ours. We usually end up pricing them about twice what the yarn cost us. We aren't making millions of $$$--but all of our crochet profits go into charity projects.
