On our 24th day of A Tour through Crochet Country, we’re visiting Bonnie Barker and March Smith for CGOA.Today’s Stop 1: Visit Bonnie Barker
Bonnie Barker is a budding crochet designer whose patterns have been published by Leisure Arts, Coats & Clark, Caron International, and Crochet World Magazine. She is also a CYCA Certified Instructor. I’m so glad I had the chance to meet Bonnie last year at CGOA Chain Link 2012 in Manchester. She is an inspiring woman and homeschooling mother of five. She has a bachelor’s degree in music education and teaches music in her home.
Bonnie’s Holiday Cables Throw has beautiful textures and a gorgeous border!
Bonnie’s Rose Diamond Stole also has rich texture, and looks warm and cozy.
Today’s Stop 2: Visit Marcy Smith for CGOA
Marcy Smith is editor of Interweave Crochet and a new member of the CGOA Board of Directors. Today she is writing for the CGOA Now! blog about how great the CGOA conferences are! I hope you’ll be able to join us for CGOA Chain Link in Indianapolis or Charlotte this year.
See You Again Tomorrow!
