The 2014 Designer Blog Tour in honor of National Crochet Month continues today with a visit to crochet designer Susan Lowman.
Susan Lowman is a crochet designer, technical editor and teacher. She enjoys crocheting each day and seeing what creativity flows through her fingers! Susan loves learning new crochet techniques and passing on what she has learned to others through her website/blog (www.TheCrochetArchitect.com), crochet patterns and crochet classes. She is an active professional member of CGOA and thoroughly enjoys attending the CGOA Conference each year to teach and/or learn. Susan cannot imagine a day/week/month without crochet!

Susan is a professional member of CGOA (Crochet Guild of America), and she has this to share about her CGOA experience:
I love being a member of CGOA, which is a fabulous organization with enthusiastic, sharing members. We encourage each other to improve our crochet skills and knowledge through local chapters (groups of crocheters) and yearly conferences. I am currently on the CGOA Board of Directors, as well as one of the co-chairs of the CGOA Masters program and a senior Masters portfolio reviewer. I love being involved with such a caring group of like-minded people!
