Andrea’s Crochet Memories

Would you share with us one of your earliest memories of crochet?

“My earliest memories associated with crochet include my Grandma sitting at the dinner table after Sunday dinner crocheting. I thought it was magic how she could take a hook and some yarn and make a beautiful piece. I consider myself lucky to have many of the items she made over the years.”

Would you share with us one of your most memorable experiences as a crocheter?

“I decorated the back of a denim jacket in a free form trout scene. I was honored when the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum in Livingston Manor, NY saw it and asked if they could display it in the museum!”

Would you share with us another crochet memory?

“I was also honored when several of my free form pieces were accepted into presentation of Sticks, Hooks & the Mobius: Knit and Crochet Go Cerebral at Lafayette College in Easton, PA.”
