Denise Voie de Vie

I’ve been into textiles … like … forever, and am especially into color. Otherwise, I’m just a single gal with a bloody, liberal heart who’s into wine, art, men and song (and not necessarily in that order).

I’ve written two historical crochet articles for Dora Ohrenstein’s site CrochetInsider.com. Since the site has been down for maintenance, I’ve republished the first one here on my blog. As soon as I track down the second one, I’ll get that one up as well … or hopefully, Dora’s site will be back up and I’ll relink to them. Update 3/27/15: Dora is back in the website business I’m happy to report! You can now read my two crochet historical articles here - part 1 and here - part 2.

Also read in the August 2014 edition of iLikeCrochet.com my article Too Cool for (Stitch) School: Bobble, Puff, or Popcorn? or in the June 2015 issue Too Cool for Stitch School: How to Line a Bag.

Additionally, I have a wee group under my Voie de Vie design name that shares current projects of all sorts, is known to have an a-long or two, fielded a Ravellenics team this year, and reads/discusses 21st century fiction - it’s right here.

I’ve got an online store! Buy artsy yet functional stuff for your home here, as well as the store’s latest edition, my soon-to-be-published soft-cover book, Leather, Lace, Grit & Grace.

And, of course, feel free to follow me on Twitter or my on-again, off-again photo stream on Instagram.

Please Note: All purchases are final.
