I just love knitting and crochet, and it was an accidental but natural step into designing. I work with magazines and individuals as a tech editor, and from time to time you will find some of my designs in Inside Crochet and Mollie Makes. All my crochet patterns are written in English, most also in US crochet terms, and many are charted.
I run a monthly crochet workshop, the Cheshire Crochet Club, at my local village hall, helping crocheters learn new techniques in bite-sized chunks, as well as having a great laugh!
