Hi, and welcome to Rich Textures Crochet! I first learned to Crochet as a teenager wanting to complete a 4-H project. My mother taught me some basic stitches and I completed my first afghan that I would enter into our local fair. It wasn’t until several years later though that I would pick it up as a more serious hobby. At that time a woman in a church that I was working at in Northern New Brunswick taught me some new stitches, and more importantly, how to read Crochet patterns. I felt that if I knew how to read a pattern, then I could Crochet anything!
Now, almost 10 years later, hardly a day goes by when I don’t have a hook in my hand. In 2016 I began selling my handicrafts both locally and on Etsy. Starting in 2017, at the encouragement of my husband I began publishing some of my own designs and patterns. It is my hope to share some of them with you here, along with tips, challenges and techniques.
The other feature of this blog will be it’s commitment to Canadian content. In Canada we are rich with a variety of diverse, talented and beautiful crochet designers and fiber artists. Here, I would like to share with you some of the ones I have discovered, both in person and across the internet.
So thank you for joining me and I hope you enjoy the site!
If you are a Canadian designer or make/sell your own Canadian crochet yarns and products and would like to have them featured on this site, please contact me!
