Hello! Thank you for visiting The Crochet Craft Co page. My name is Donna and I love all things crochet!
My crochet home is based in Southampton, right down on the South Coast of the UK, where I live with my very understanding husband (who is drowning in yarn), two slightly crochet-embarrassed teenagers (I do whip the hook out wherever we go – the photos below prove just how embarrassing I can be!) and my naughty, stubborn but completely lovable Cairn terrier, Alfie.
My day job is working as an HR Manager for an amazing local hospice whose incredibly hardworking and dedicated staff provide an much needed and valued service to patients and families in the area. Now I can hear all the ‘boos’ and ‘hisses’ at the HR Manager bit, but I am nice, I really am! I mean, I’m obsessed with crochet so I have a pink and fluffy side – right?
I started The Crochet Craft Co in June 2015 (originally born The Crochet Card Co) when I started making cards with crochet applique. Nowadays my focus is on designing simple and fresh patterns and crochet kits, mainly amigirumi cute characters such as Dave the Dog and Colin the Cow, as well as fun handpuppets and seasonal items such as wreaths and advent calendars.
I am passionate about teaching crochet and passing on the skills, helping others on their crochet journey and watching them create beautiful projects. I teach crochet regularly across Southampton as well as at national yarn events. In addition, I provide free tutorials on online and private online lessons to help people find their ‘crojo’.
I believe that crocheting (and other similar crafts) deliver some fantastic benefits in relieving stress and helping us be ‘mindful’ in this busy, crazy, constant world we live in. I know that it certainly helps me switch off from challenging days.
I hope you enjoy browsing my page and if I can help you in any way with your crochet journey, just let me know!
