March 18: A Tour through Crochet Country

You’ve arrived at A Tour Through Crochet Country! During March 2013, Crochetville is hosting a daily designer blog tour in celebration of National Crochet Month. Each day, we visit the blogs of one or two crochet designers, who share something with us — a free crochet pattern or tutorial, a peek into their studio or a-day-in-the-life, a coupon code, or something else special. Join us each day for a new surprise!

On our 18th day of A Tour through Crochet Country, we’re visiting Rhonda Davis and Tammy Hildebrand for CGOA.

Today’s Stop 1: Visit Rhonda Davis

Rhonda Davis is a woman who knows fashion, as you’ll see if you visit her Pinterest boards, and she uses her eye for style to create beautiful crochet designs. Rhonda, also known as TurquoizBlue, loves to design crochet fashion, accessories, and home decor. In 2009, her VictoriAfrikana Footstool won 3rd place in the Home Decor category of the Crochet Guild of America Design Contest. Also in 2009, she wrote an article about her five favorite sites for free crochet patterns (which included Crochetville!) for the magazine First For Women (December 7, 2009). On her blog at This Is Crochet, Rhonda has been following along throughout A Tour Through Crochet Country, and today is her day!

The small flowers scattered over the borders of the Fluerette Scarf give it a unique and beautiful texture.

The little mirrors in these Looking Glass Curtains would add a pretty touch of sparkle to the bathroom, bedroom, or kitchen.

Today’s Stop 2: Visit Tammy Hildebrand for CGOA

We visited with Tammy Hildebrand earlier this month, but today she is blogging for CGOA Now!, The Official Blog of the Crochet Guild of America. Tammy is Vice President of CGOA this year. Previously she served as CGOA’s Mentor Coordinator and Chair of the Professional Development Committee. Today, on CGOA Now!, she is writing about how CGOA can help you with your professional development.

See You Again Tomorrow!

I hope you enjoyed today’s stops visiting with Rhonda Davis and Tammy Hildebrand for CGOA. Please come join us again tomorrow when we’ll visit with Julie Oparka and Cari Clement for CGOA.
