I am married (24 years!) and have a wonderful son, who is now an adult! Where did those years go! I live in Waltham Abbey, which I love for many reasons, it has a villagey feel, but we are sooo close to the M25 for venturing further afield, but also close to Epping Forest and the Lee Valley Parks, and if we want to go into town (thats London town) it is a short train ride away.
I left teaching to pursue a craft that I was passionate about, I opened my shop – The Crochet Chain in 2010, it was open for 4 years, and during that time I have honed my crochet skills, teaching crochet (and a bit of knitting) to many, many people. I started designing, and found that I like to make patterns that are easy to follow, and that use a minimum of sewing up!
The physical shop is now closed, although I still sell online linky , run courses at various places, do workshops at Shows, and social groups locally, and I will be sharing my tutorials and some patterns here or on my Ravelry pages.
Please leave comments as I would love to know what you think!
