I was taught to crochet & knit as a child by my Grandmother, she also made sure that I was able to follow and replicate patterns. I didn’t really enjoy the hobby when I was young, there was always something better to do…

…But, I came back to the craft in 2013 to give myself a break from internet job searches. I had spent a couple of years prior to that recovering from a CFS/ME collapse at work and was finding it increasingly difficult to get employment.

During the first few months I made a promise to myself that I would practice every day and become proficient enough that I would someday teach others to crochet. I achieved that goal by opening Unravel & Unwind in March 2014.

It was at this time that I met Helen from Rainbow Valley Crochet. I needed someone to teach me advanced skills as I had quickly outgrown the beginner patterns and I wanted new challenges.

As a result of Helen’s mentoring, advanced techniques and unique pattern constructions I have been able to expand my knowledge base much farther than my Grandmother thought possible. She now tells me that “the student has surpassed her tutor”, and I am proud to say that with Helen’s faith in my ability and my Grandmothers encouragement I became a designer this year, 2017.
