About Crochetville

Company Overview

Since 2004, Crochetville has been the premier online social community where crochet enthusiasts from around the world come to get help, find inspiration, show off projects, dish about yarn and hooks, and just generally share their love of crochet. We’re the fun place for crochet!

Amy Shelton and Donna Hulka are the co-owners of Crochetville. The basic stuff about us: We’re both life-long crocheters, having learned when we were children. We’re both professional members of the Crochet Guild of America. Amy has served on the board of directors for the past four years and as president in 2011 and 2012. We design. We teach. We tech edit. We exhibit at consumer knit and crochet shows around the country, partnering with Red Heart Yarns.

The fun stuff about us: Most importantly, we run Crochetville because we are passionate about crochet. That passion translates into creating a vibrant, thriving community for crocheters, by crocheters that we hope will meet any need you may have as a crocheter, short of actually crocheting your project for you. But we’ll let you do that, since we want you to have fun here, not take the fun away from you!
