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: Suzann Thompson | Ana Dyakova | Valerie Bracegirdle | 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!)

  1. I’ve only worked with thread a couple times. I find it hard to hold and it took me a while to get used to seeing the tiny stitches

  2. I haven’t had the courage to try thread crochet yet, but I would definitely like to learn. I’ve always wanted to make some of those super delicate doilies and things.

  3. I love vintage books and I would love to add these to my collection. It is fun to look back and learn from those who have gone before me. I love looking through the old magazines at the old vintage photos and ads.

  4. I haven’t done a lot of it,but do want to do more (I do tend to make thread crochet patterns into larger things with yarn fairly often).

  5. I have been working with thread a lot lately doing some filet crochet pieces. For me, crocheting with thread takes longer, I’m not as fast as with yarn. My hands cramp more holding those little steel hooks so I have to take more breaks. I prefer to use yarn but for some things you have to sacrifice. 😉

  6. So far, I’ve mutated thread patterns such as doilies into worsted weight monsters. As I get more comfortable with thinner yarns, I’m closer to being ready to crochet with thread for real.

  7. I learned to crochet with thread when I was a young girl. My grandmother taught me. So, yes, I do enjoy crocheting with thread.

  10. Crocheting with thread is enjoyable when I do it. I have made doilies and jewelry, but not as often as I would like. When I do I am always happy I did.

  11. Thread crochet has always intimadated me, its so fine. I was taught a while back with a thick and thin yarn. This year i intend to conquer this! These would be great to have!

    Reply
  12. I haven’t crocheted with thread-yet. I bought some, but need to get the correct hook size. And need to build up my confidence to try it!

    Reply
  13. My first crochet projects were made of thread (over 40 years ago), and I’m enjoying thread still, though use other yarns as well.

    Reply
  14. Have never tried crocheting with thread. Gotta get a big magnifying glass for that project. Would love to make a doily. I have seen so so many beautiful patterns.

    Reply
  15. I’ve crocheted a few times with thread and I enjoy it. It’s always a little awkward at first but I get used to it pretty quick.

    Reply
  16. Do I see a Crinoline Lady!?! Oh my goodness! I was telling my cousin about them lately. She had never heard of them. Would love to see the whole booklet.
