GoCrochet Readers get "sneak peeks" before a new design hits the printed page. Before the design gets to the sneak peek stage there are many issues a designer faces. I have talked about these issues at length, like making business and design goals, what makes a good design?, what issues do I think about when creating a new design? Readers enjoy the insight into the design process and many of them are aspiring designers themselves.
Occasionally I run across a fun tip or trick to tell my readers about. We did an in-depth 'how-to-repair-a-granny-square' tutorial that was a learning experience for everyone!
Sometimes I post photos that are companions to my online pattern store. Here's a photo from the popular Tunisian Lace Ascot, which was originally published in Interweave Crochet, Spring, 2008 and now is available as an individual PDF.
Thank you Marie, for inviting me to introduce myself to your community of readers!
Your Welcome Ellen, I hope that you take the time to stop over on her blog, its amazing. when I came across her site and learned that she was a crochet designer I got excited, plus that she has had many of her crochet patterns published I knew right away that I wanted my readers to know about her. I am so truly grateful for Ellen from GoCrochet for taking the time to introduce herself to my readers.
