I taught myself how to crochet a few years ago and haven’t been able to stop since then. I created this platform to help passionate crocheters like me feel inspired to create more. Because I truly believe life without art would be just boring.
To practice any art, no matter how well or how badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. So do it.” – Kurt Vonnegut
