  1. Hi! I just found you guys today. I am a retired vet tech, now I get to be a housewife. We have 4 dogs, 1 cat, 3 fish tanks, 2 birds. I enjoy crocheting, sewing, counted cross stitch, and knitting. In the past 3 years I have had viral meningitis, 4 knee surgeries, back surgery, elbow surgery and 1 hip surgery - cant wait to get back to walking again!
  2. Hi my name is Marie. I learned to crochet when I was 9, I'll be 60 in May. I'm now crocheting kids hats and doll clothes for my 8 granddaughters and the 18 American Girls they have including bitty twins and bitty toddlers
  3. Hello from dreary Tennessee today. I'm taking a break from work to look around for inspiration. I'll be back when I'm done to look around more. I'm retired/self-employed part-time and parent to three bottle-raised cats and two small dogs. Breast cancer survivor and klutz--looking forward to surgery to remove two of six screws in the ankle I broke being stupid back in January. Not an expert crocheter by any means, but I'm not afraid to try things, either. Except Tunisian. Haven't gotten up that much nerve yet.
  4. I am a grandma and great grandma of many. I work all year round on things for them and their friends personal requests. The left over yarn from each project is made into hats, scarves, gloves, shawls, wraps and blankets. I have some personal physical challenges so I have more time than most to work on these kinds of things. I try to have all the Christmas items completed and wrapped by Thanksgiving so I can make the holiday dinners for a family of 25 and still pull of the 8 birthdays that happen between Halloween and New Years including my own.
  5. Hi, I've crocheted since 1973 when I learned the skill at the student union while attending Iowa State University. I don't crochet as often as I used to, but I still love the craft.
  6. Hello Not a big talker but I love to crochet have ever since my great Aunt taught me at 9 yrs old. I was in love with all her awesome potholders, slippers and fancy bed jackets she made to wear while reading in bed : ) Hope to learn on here how to make items i did not even realized i needed yet lol I am always amazed at the creativity of the necessity crocheters who are always making new items, and finding ways to use crochet in modern times ! Love anything a little bit hippy to elegant and as luck has it crochet can do it all : ) Happy to find Crochetville and look forward to starting this adventure. SoftMusic (AKA Cinn*)
  7. Hi, I'm Cathy from WA (& SD & AZ ) I'm an RV enthusiast and spend at least 6 months of the year living in our RV. We are planning to re-settle in WA state in the next few months...after our warm winter in AZ! I've been crocheting since I was a young teen (I"m in my 60s now) and love it. This year I did a CAL that really challenged my abilities and taught me a lot! I still enjoy learning new techniques & am pleasantly surprised when I successfully accomplish this learning. Glad to be part of this forum. Cathy
  8. Greetings! I'm an old dragon gone to roost. My mind and hands are about all that still function. I have been crocheting since est. age 10, but never had any guidance. What I thought was a single crochet for 3 decades, I have learned is really a slip stitch. All Blessing to the Internet!!! lol For the last year I have made a determined effort to learn to crochet so I could make the things I couldn't afford. Like the beautiful shawl in all the right colors...sells at the craft shows for $250...out of my reach!! But $25 for yarn and a month of time...and I run around like a peacock with his tail spread!!! That's mainly because people have complimented it!! So now at just shy of 55, I'm taking off!! Granny thought I was 'slow', Mom didn't have 'time to waste on girly stuff', but I see it all as a way to love. The look in the person's eyes when I hand them a hat while they sit on cold concert waiting for the shelter to open...I want to do that all the time!! Merry Meet!!
  9. I'm excited to be here! I'm a retired navy wife - which means my husband served 20 years in the US Navy and now we're both retired from it. We now live in Idaho where the pace is just a bit slower than we're used to. I love to crochet and it has helped me keep my sanity through all life has thrown my way. I've never had time to keep up with any groups, though, so I'm excited to have more time that's mine now and to be involved with the things I love. You all seem so wonderful here. I think this is going to be a great place to be. I've noticed many of you have "Proud Bag Lady", "2016 50 book challenge", "2016 stashbusting", etc in your signatures. I can't wait to find out what those are all about. Did I tell you I love crochet? I do, I really, really do. I'm a bit obsessive about it, actually.
  10. My name is Angela. I am new to crochet but have already used you to help me with a project. Look forward to "meeting" you all and learning from you.
  11. Hello Everyone, I am so glad to be here. I have been crocheting for over 20 years, and love it. I have an etsy shop... gwengoods. I make and sell all sorts of accessories. Also I have a blog where I share all things crochet, gwengoods.blogspot.com you can find me just about anywhere as gwengoods, ravelry, pinterest, facebook, instagram, tumblr, twitter and flicker.
  12. Hello all I just got into or back into crochet this past November. My mother taught me in my mid teens as a way to keep her ADD son busy, but I don't remember actually making anything back then. Fast forward 30 years and not I am a 45 year late stage cancer survivor with a ton of health issues. I got into drawing and painting last year and found them a great way to calm and focus my mind but crochet seems to be even better in many ways and ultra portable with almost no clean up. So now I have some kind of crochet project with me almost everywhere I go. I am amazed that I almost never seem to tire of it. I have at least five more years of working before I can even think of retiring from my current job and I know that I wan't to do something creative when I do. Its looking more and more like that thing will be in the fabric arts.
  13. HI everyone!! I am new here - just signed up to take Kim Guzman's Pattern Grading Class!! Can't wait to take the class & play around in Crochetville to see what wonderful things I can find!! My name is Ann. I have been crocheting for over 30 years. I worked all my life, so I never had the time to make crochet a business, until I was fortunate enough to become a SAHM to my beautiful daughter in 2010. Now, I have my own website and I design & sell my own crochet patterns!! I would love for you all to stop by & say Hi!!

LOVE to all!!!
  14. Hey everyone, I'm somewhat new to crochet. I was mostly a knitter for years, until my sister finally showed me the basics of crochet....and no pun intended I got hooked! I'm a Montana girl who moved to Illinois for my job, and my sis is in Oklahoma so I dont have anyone to bounce ideas off of. I recently had a little mishap in my house and was looking for a way to wash/salvage yarn....and found this site...and it feels like a good fit. So thanks for being here. I think I'm gonna like it! Dena
  15. I live in Cadillac, MI where the winters are long and the growing season is short. At least compared to where I grew up, which is Shelby, MI. I've been crocheting for a few years and enjoy making hats, scarves, dishcloths, blankets--pretty much simple stuff that doesn't require seaming. I don't have much patience for seaming. I also knit hats and scarves. I'm looking for a good place to ask questions and interact about crochet projects.
  16. Hi! I call myself a "fiber artist" (crocheter). I'm native to Northern Virginia, never had a reason to leave. I reside with my hubby of 39 years (yes, I'm up there in age). Three girl kittens share the roost with us. You can imagine the discussions I have with them over whose yarn is it anyway? I win 50% of the time, when they're sleeping. I'm venturing into knitting at the end of the month, going to learn how to knit and fit and create my own garments. Can hardly wait! My first love will always be crochet.
  17. Good evening! I am a somewhat newer crocheter, self taught about 6months ago, mother of two boys. I crochet as a form of stress relieve. My dh is a medically retired deputy after being in an on duty shooting. We live a quite life in snowy Ohio!
  18. Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself, I'm Darlene from Iowa. thanks for letting me join.
  19. I learned to crochet over the phone about 9 years ago. I am new to knitting, started with a pair of socks (not the smartest but I did it) and have been knitting for about 7 months now. I have more yarn than one should have. I am estimating that when we move in a couple of months I will have 3 boxes of just yarn! OUCH!!!
  20. Hello guys, nice to meet you! I'm new to this site, but I've been crocheting for a couple of years now, and as it's become less of a hobby and more of a lifestyle, I'm looking to connect more with other crafters out there and really expand my skills, as well as give what help I can to everyone else. If I can polish my skills enough, I'd like to eventually become a contract crocheter, as well as doing commissions (the latter I've actually started on). Anyways, please feel free to chat with me - I don't bite!
  21. Hello, my name is TJ. I'm new here, but I can't wait to get to looking around. Crochet is one of my many hobbies. I also like to make my own clothes, and accessories. I crochet a lot of my Christmas gifts every year. Basically I love crafts in general. Career wise, I am a hair stylist, currently working for Regis salons, but I hope soon to open my own salon so I can do things my way. I love my job, what I do, and the people/clients I work with, I just hate working for a big corporation. But, anyway, that's a little about me, I look forward to reading and learning new things here.
  22. Hello fellow crocheters and Happy Autumn! I am new to crochet and all crafts, really, though I have had a little instruction. I would love to meet anyone of any skill level because sharing craft is more fun I would guess. I am open to meeting anyone from anywhere but if you know a good group of yarn crafters in PDX I would love to go to an actual meet-up too. Cheers! Jot September 28, 2013
  23. Hello everyone, I'm new to Crochetville. I'm new to crocheting, less than a year, but I was a knitter for 6 years. I had hand surgery in both hands and now I can't knit so a friend talked me into try crocheting. I've been hookin' my way through patterns every since. Plus, I had a good stash of yarn. I read about this group on the http://www.knitandcrochetshow.com/ website. I am planning on attending and thought it would be good to know some fellow crocheters. I'm also going to the http://www.saffsite.org/ fair later in October. See you on Ravelry too, J-
  24. Just a post to say hello, and a little introduction! I am a final year university student of social science, and I have recently wandered into the world of crochet and all things yarn-y and fab. I have made up a few basic crochet pieces now, including some hot water bottle covers, iPad and phone cases, hats/gloves/bags, and followed some small amigurumi patterns! I love trying out different yarns and hooks, and currently love my multi-coloured aluminium hooks and some 50/50 cotton/bamboo yarn that I found on sale in my local shop. Although I am trying to improve my crafting, I am having a little break from actually *doing* the crocheting, as I have a lot of (study) work to do, but decided to join this site as a way to stay connected to this wonderful new hobby! Thanks for reading my introduction, and feel free to send me a message!
  25. Found this after getting frustrated with trying to find a group. SMH But love the layout and hope it works out
