I’ve been crocheting since my grandmother taught me when I was 9. I conquered my fear of knitting in 2010, and haven’t looked back since.
I’m the Proprietress of Underground Crafter. I’m also a Craft Yarn Council Certified Crochet and Knitting Instructor (Level I) and Certified Crochet and Knitting Teacher (Level II). In addition to designing and blogging, I specialize in teaching individual and small group crochet classes for beginner and intermediate students, and beginner knitting students.
I’m a member of the the New York City Crochet Guild, a Professional member of Crochet Guild of America, and a Designer/Teacher member of The Knitting Guild Association.
All of my self-published patterns have been thoroughly tested and/or edited, and are for personal use only. Unless otherwise noted, my self-published patterns use U.S. abbreviations. You may use the patterns to make unlimited items for yourself, for charity, or to give as gifts. You may sell items you personally make by hand from the patterns. You may not sell, copy, or distribute my patterns. If you would like to teach a class based on any of my patterns, please contact me to purchase a commercial use pattern.
If you have any questions about my patterns, classes, or blog, feel free to email me at marieATundergroundcrafterDOTcom.
