Reviews Of My Designs

Hook Carving Closeup - Aberrant CrochetHere you will find feedback specific to my finished goods, hooks and patterns.  I used to have this section under my About Me page.  But over the years with accumulated links and reviews of my articles all on the same page, it’s become harder to find the reviews for my design work.  So I left my writing reviews and such over there and moved the reviews for my crochet related work here.  Most of my sales are done face-to-face at shows, where one rarely receives feedback, but I treasure it when I get it! 🙂  Thank you to those who contribute.

I was making a large cobweb for our theatre’s production of Charlotte’s web, and already have a pattern I had worked out for myself; but your pattern has definitely helped me iron out a few issues with my pattern (I have never created patterns for myself before 🙂 ).  So thank you so very much as the director is very happy with the web so far.” Cindi (Etsy)
