A-Glamping We Will Go: 5th Annual National Crochet Month Blog Tour
Welcome to Crochetville’s fifth annual National Crochet Month (NatCroMo) blog tour, taking place each day of March 2017. Join us for a month of virtual glamping (aka glamorous camping), as we visit crochet designers, crochet-friendly local yarn stores, and yarn companies, as well as offer some fun giveaways.
Today’s Posts: Vashti Braha | Marty Miller | Andrea Lyn Van Benschoten | Daily Giveaway
Want to Chat about the Tour?
Part of the fun of glamping is the daily round-up around the campfire, chatting and stitching with friends. We hope you’ll join us in our NatCroMo Facebook group, where we’ll be sharing daily camping recipes, campfire songs about crochet, and so much more! We’d also love to hear about your favorite things you’ve discovered on the tour and see photos of your current crochet projects. You’re invited to join us daily for virtual cocktails/appetizers and dinner. (We’ll be sharing links to some fabulous recipes!)

I can’t resist patterns whether crochet ones or quilling (my second hobby–yes that’s two l’s). For crochet I especially like smaller fast projects or afghans.
I’m interested in this giveaway. Please add me to the drawing. Thanks!
My mother used to collect so many of these. I continue to carry on this tradition. They are always full of some of the best patterns!
I have some old leaflets, what a joy to find something different to make!
I love finding stitch books as there is so much to learn and try!
I have several hardback crochet books from the very early ’80s. Can’t part with them!
Afghans, bags and doilies are my favorite booklets.
Thanks so much to all that offers prizes on this years tour.
I guess I do. I have a couple of boxes of the little magazines that used to be popular. They were about 1/3 the size of today’s magazines so they fit easy in a project bag. When I’m looking for a vintage pattern I get them out and flip through them.
I collect old crochet books; my favorite are baby items.
all crafts lol!
I am very new to crocheting so I do not own any crochet books of any kind. Yet, at least!
I collect all kinds of craft books, quilting, sewing, crafting with kids, basically anything I can get my hands on. I love crafting and I love reading craft books.
I use to collect the smaller Annie’s Attic pattern books.
I don’t collect crochet booklets yet, but I’m really looking to find some old Japanese, Russian, and Irish charts to start a collection.
I can’t resist craft booklets! My favorites are for crochet! This is a great giveaway!
I don’t really search out these old booklets, but I get excited when I happen upon one randomly. I have a couple from my husband’s grandmother who taught me to knit that are really special. I love the detailed descriptions and patterns.
Thanks for the giveaway!
I love crochet books and booklets from the 1800’s thru the 1950’s. I love the doilies, accessories and kitchen items from these time periods.
Yes, I collect craft booklets! I love finding old (think 1950’s or older) crochet booklets, especially doilies, edging, or other types of lace.
I love finding any of the fibre arts doll patterns! 😉
Yes, I collect craft booklets. I love to shop and thrift stores. I look for crochet, of course, and just about any kind of craft. It’s fun! I was trying to crochet a cozie for my grandson’s teacher last year, and couldn’t remember how to crochet a circle. I didn’t have internet at the time, but I did have an out of print crochet book that showed me just what to do!
I love crochet books from the 60s & 70s. The fashion and home patterns in them just make me smile!
I love crochet pattern booklet’s, books, etc. I hope crochet designers keep making more patterns. I love paper copies of things.
I love collecting the really old crochet books (pre-1950 especially), though I really wish they would at least give a gauge on the clothing, so I’d have some idea of what yarn and hook/needles to use! 🙂
I’m not a collector in the true sense. Most of what I have used to be my grandmother’s who had some subscriptions
I love to collect books or booklets. My husband does not understand. I like quick easy projects
my favorite craft books are crochet
I love vintage magazines as much for the ridiculous blatantly sexist advertisements at least as much as the patterns.
I love crochet publications of all kinds – books, booklets, magazines, downloadble patterns.
You can never have too many pattern books, right? Thanks for the giveaway!
I love to collect all crochet related books, specially stitch dictionaries or for wearables.
I love going into my local Salvation Army store and spend time looking through the many books that they have. I have found many of my crochet books there. Some are from the early 70’s and 80’s. Thanks for the giveaway.
I love books on crafts that you don’t hear about much any longer, old craft books. I also love any crochet books.
