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: Brenda Stratton | Sara Leighton | 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!)

Sara Leighton, Illuminate Crochet

Sara Leighton | Illuminate Crochet

Crochetville is very proud to have designer Sara Leighton with us today, March 26, as one of the featured designers on our 2017 Designer Blog Tour in honor of National Crochet Month (NatCroMo). If you’d like to know even more about Sara, check out our post from last year’s blog tour.

About Sara:

I live in Seattle, Washington and have a sweet little cat named Ranna. Crochet is my very favorite way to fill my days and bring the ideas I have stored in my brain out into the world to share with others. In addition to crochet, my hobbies include quilling, baking, karaoke, and reading. My favorite food is popcorn, and my favorite color is purple.
