The 2014 Designer Blog Tour in honor of National Crochet Month continues today with a visit to crochet designer Phyllis Serbes.
Phyllis Serbes is the designer behind Many Creative Gifts, a company designed to provide products and services to help you to “be thoughtful” and true to your giving nature. On Ravelry and Craftsy, she showcases her crochet patterns and custom designs, but on her blog, Many Creative Gifts, she takes a more holistic approach to thoughtfulness and offers ideas and recommendations on mind, body, spirit, … and of course crochet! You can sign up to receive new blog posts by email, and you’ll receive her quarterly newsletter too. Phyllis is also the Crochet Guru on www.crochet.lifetips.com – if you’ve been enjoying her tips there, then you’re going to love her first ebook of “101 Crochet Tips” for instant download to your computer or Kindle. With an interactive Table of Contents, you can use the links to easily navigate from chapter to chapter to access the tips you need while working on your latest crochet project.

Phyllis is a professional member of CGOA, and she has this to share about her CGOA experience:
I love being a professional member of CGOA because the people and resources available are just amazing. From well-known crochet designers to newbies just venturing out, everyone interacts with and helps each other. The newsletter included with the monthly magazine always has interesting insights into the latest happenings in the crochet world, and the website is getting better and better too.
We’d like to highlight two of Phyllis’s designs, just to give you a sneak peek at her work.
Clownie the Crocheted Clown Doll: An updated version of a vintage crocheted clown doll pattern, with plenty of pictures and step-by-step instructions. A fun project and great for gift-giving! Available for $4.95 on Ravelry.
Scalloped Baby Hat : The perfect baby shower present! A quick project that just looks like you spent a lot of time on it. Available for $4.95 on Ravelry.
