Meet the Designer:
My publishers:
Welcome! I'm glad you found your way to my little home page. 
My name is Amy, and I have been crocheting for over 28 years.  Years ago, I started designing things I couldn't find a pattern for. Since then, friends and people from around the country have commissioned me to make items when they wanted to give a special holiday, birthday, or baby gift, or as donations for silent auctions. 
Whether you have a pattern you like or just an idea, but don't know how to crochet, I would be glad to help. If you know how to crochet but can't find what you're looking for, I also design patterns (with or without the finished item).
Just e-mail me with your ideas or requests and we'll go from there!

* YOU CAN HELP! I have a friend who knits and crochets for charity. She makes literally hundreds of hats, scarves, mittens, and blankets a year for children in need. Since she is retired, she has the time but not the funds for so much yarn. Please consider donating any weight yarn to support the cause. Partially used skeins are welcome.

You can contact her at: Nancy Blanchong, 8616 Custar Rd., Custar, OH 43511 or
Check out her blog at for pictures of her work!
Sometimes you've got to stop crocheting to pet the bunny...
