Getting to know Us…
First of all I would like to thank you for checking out “Crochet With Passion” Web site. When we began this web sight we wanted to reach out in an effort to inspire and encourage crocheters along their Crochet Journey! Secondly, for it to become a way to introduce this creative art form to non crocheters.
My name is Pamela and crocheting has been a passion my entire adult life. I believe you are never too old to learn something new, and I am always looking for ways to improve my crocheting skill.
I learned to crochet when I was 20 from the book Susan Bates “Learn to Crochet” in 8 easy steps. (for left or right handers). I found the book in a local craft store for $4.00, and so began my life long love of crocheting.
After learning as much as I could on my own, I did a correspondence course through the Craft Yarn Council of America. This course helped polish my crochet skill and unlearn some bad habits that I had formed. When I had completed the course, I had a Certification as in Instructor and Teacher.
For over twenty years I have been teaching crocheting at several businesses around our community such as Hobby Lobby; and at our Senior Center and our local Community College, and home just to name a few. I also developed the skill of repairing vintage crochet pieces (mostly afghans) for people. I love teaching others to crochet and watching as students develop a skill that will last them a life time.
Besides loving to crochet I am a wife to a wonderful husband. God has blessed me with two and a grandmother of seven. My husband who is a Chaplain in our local jail, and I, are active members of our church. We are privileged to work and serve people who suffer with addictions through a faith based discipleship ministry in our local church and jail.
In addition to spending time with my Hubby and family, I enjoy crocheting, reading (I love my Kindle or listening to audible), hiking, or riding our bicycles and cooking. I also enjoy a warm cup of Twinnings tea a few times a day.
Currently on this web sight you will discover that I have designed a system using our calendar year to encourage and inspire us to crochet depending on the season and the month. I designed Theme Months. First, I wrote down every possible crochet project and then assigned it a month so that by the years end, you will find you have crocheted through several projects.
You can expect eight posts monthly, and on the weekends I unplug. It is a time of no social media or email. We all need a day away from the computers as much as we enjoy them or not.
Every month there will be two posts about our theme, two tutorials, and one review on a topic concerning crocheting. There will be one post on a special crochet topic; one discussing tips and tricks, and lastly at the months end, I share what I have been crocheting through out the month.
Please come and join us and feel free to leave comments and post your projects to Crochet with Passion Facebook page (@crochetingwithpassion) or Twitter (@CrochetPassion) as I would love to see and hear about your projects.
Until later keep those hooks flying
