Hi! I’m Sonya, the owner of Blackstone Designs. I live in Central Maine with my husband and 3 children.

I learned to crochet in early 2000 and started designing at the end of 2012. I consider myself to be a design dabbler, creating things from toys to accessories, but I find the most joy in designing clothing.

My favorite yarns to work with are plant based or anything with shimmer; I’m a total sucker for glitter yarns!

I have been a designer in several crochet competitions and my designs have been featured in various online and print publications. I hope to have many more in the future.

When I am not wrapped up in yarn loveliness, I am usually just doing another craft.. or maybe I’m singing “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”; it’s my daughter’s favorite and she has me on a loop! LOL!
