Dear crochet blogger, designer, seller:
I had to shut down this blog last February 2015 due to personal reasons. I am no longer active in the crochet community but, I want to thank YOU ALL for the support over the years. I’ll slowly fix the dead links and update any articles on the blog but in the meantime, feel free to browse all the great information on the site.
Contact me at Sara at Crochetbusiness.com or hop on Twitter and say HI! I’m no longer ‘momwithahook’ over there but I’ll answer your crochet questions as myself – @crocheting20.
Thank you again and be BLESSED. #YouAreLOVED pass it on!

My Crochet Story
Back when I was pregnant with my youngest son (1999) I said a little prayer to God. I desperately wanted to be able to stay home with him instead of working outside the home. I asked God for a gift – any gift that would help me with this goal.
My husband paid for some crochet lessons and before long, I was crocheting every day.
I toyed around with selling my crochet by opening up an Etsy shop in 2007 eventually designing and selling patterns.
I retired from selling in 2010 to concentrate on writing.
