The 2014 Designer Blog Tour in honor of National Crochet Month continues today with a visit to crochet designer Jocelyn Sass.
Jocelyn feels so fortunate to have been designing in crochet and other needlework forms for over 23 years! She has over 400 crochet and needlework designs published in books and magazines & is now happily self-publishing crochet patterns for sale. About two years ago, her oldest daughter, Gina started her own photography business featuring newborns and families.
Gina asked her mom to design some crochet photo props (that are so popular today) that she could use for her adorable babies. This venture has blossomed into a great partnership for us! Jocelyn designs and crochets baby items Gina wishes to use in her business. Gina then showcases them beautifully with her professional photography. It is a match made in heaven!
Jocelyn is also excited to have opened another Etsy shop, Jocelyn Designs, dedicated to trendy, stylish and funky accessory CROCHET PATTERNS for women and girls.

Jocelyn is a professional member of CGOA (Crochet Guild of America), and she has this to share about her CGOA experience:
I love the annual conferences to get inspired and re-focus my energies! There is so much to share and learn.
I love the camaraderie of being able to share what I love (crochet) with fellow professional crochet designers. We are all a great bunch of people who get along beautifully, even though sometimes we are in competition! That is a wonderful feeling!
We’d like to highlight two of Jocelyn’s designs, just to give you a sneak peek at her work.
