Book Review and Giveaway: Design Your Own Crochet Projects

Posted in Fun Ramblings, News on November 2nd, 2017 by Rachel Choi – 84 Comments

When you think of buying a crochet book, most people are looking for a variety of patterns. Design Your Own Crochet Projects by Sara Delaney has a different approach. While still providing a variety of crochet patterns, it gives you the details on how each pattern is designed and sized. I wish there was a book like this years ago when I started designing my own crochet patterns. It gives you the insight into how the author develops her patterns so that you can extrapolate what you want to make your own.

Free Advertising for Crocheters Who Sell Their Work

Posted in News on September 8th, 2017 by Rachel Choi – Be the first to comment

A while ago I made a directory of crocheters who sell finished crochet items that are made from Crochet Spot patterns. Often times, I have non-crocheters that ask me to purchase a finished item, but since I spend a large amount of time pattern designing, I’m not able to make a lot of finished crocheted items to sell. This free directory has been very helpful in connecting buyers with sellers. So if you’ve crocheted a few Crochet Spot patterns in the past, and are actively selling items made from Crochet Spot patterns, please let me know so that I can add you to the directory. What’s better than free advertising for your personal business?

If you are a crocheter and would like to be added to this free directory, please email [email protected] and include the following information:

  • Your full name and business name (if you have one)
  • Link to your online shop (Etsy shop, personal website, Facebook page, etc.) so that folks can see your work
  • Email address, which will appear publicly in the directory
  • List the CrochetSpot.com patterns (exact names) that you enjoy crocheting the most and/or the patterns you make to sell.
  • 2 – 3 sentences about yourself and/or your crochet work, to be displayed with your information
  • Please be sure to provide all information as incomplete submissions will not be published in the directory.

Feel free to check out the directory here: Crocheters For Hire

Guinness World Record: Longest Crocheted Scarf

Posted in Fun Ramblings, News on June 30th, 2017 by Rachel Choi – 2 Comments

What’s the longest scarf you have ever crocheted? I bet it isn’t as long as the world’s longest scarf! Recently a group, Mother India Crochet Queens in Chennai, India made a new Guinness World Records for the longest crocheted scarf. The scarf measured 46,223 ft 9 in (14.089 km). An average scarf is about 5 to 6 feet long. Here is a photo from the Guinness World Record showing the scarf displayed in layers on a open field.

Taking a Chance on Doilies

Posted in Fun Ramblings, News on June 8th, 2017 by A Guest Writer – 1 Comment

A Guest Post by Suzann Thompson.

At a textile art exhibit, an acquaintance said to me, “I have all these doilies from my grandmother, but I don’t really know what to do with them.”

That casual comment from a few years ago is largely responsible for Celebrate Doilies! which is a traveling exhibit of doily art, poetry, and heritage, debuting in July 2017 in Stephenville, Texas.
