My Crochet Story
Back when I was pregnant with my youngest son 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 I knew it, I was crocheting everyday.
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. (Plus I was getting no where in selling crochet for a profit. I fell into the trap of underselling my work.)
Writing is what I enjoy doing. This blog is how I share what I learn about blogging and selling crochet. My hearts desire is to see thriving independent crochet businesses.
I believe it is possible to earn with crocheting. I also believe in hard work and multiple streams of income.
A crochet business is like an investment portfolio. You want to invest in multiple ‘stocks‘ or revenue streams to have a sustainable business. (A Must Read: Craft Business Power by Jeff G. and Cinnamon Miles of Liberty Jane Clothing)
I look forward to watching your crochet business grow.
