Modern Designs, Wearable Garments, Beautifully Executed




Say what!?!?

I am so excited to announce that I have been asked to participate in this year’s Annual Mother’s Day Crochet Along sponsored by Premier Yarns. I have joined 3 of my Designer friends to bring you the Mom’s Favorite Things Crochet Along (CAL).

Want to know how it works?

This year’s theme is “Mom’s Favorite Things”. Each Friday, starting April 6th, we will release a new free pattern that we believe will become one of Mom’s favorites. The projects vary in size, type and complexity so there will be something for everyone.

Tag us on your favorite social media channel with  #CelebrateMomCAL

On top of all that, there are prizes, too! Premier Yarns is generously sponsoring an amazing prize pack at the end of the CAL (details to follow).

Hmmm… is there something else I can sweeten the pot with? HECK YES!!!
