March 21: A Tour through Crochet Country

National Crochet Month

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 21st day of A Tour through Crochet Country, we’re visiting Alaina Klug.

Today we visit with Alaina Klug, an associate professional with CGOA. Alaina has completed the Craft Yarn Council of America teaching program and Dora Ohrenstein’s (Crochet insider) Designer Boot Camp. She is now working on CGOA’s Master of Advanced Crochet Stitches and Techniques program.

Alaina currently teaches crochet classs in Novi and Livonia, MI. She sells patterns, tools/supplies, and yarn on her new website/blog.

Here is one of Alaina’s recent projects.
