I joined our local craft club to help a friend there to learn to crochet. I hadn't touched a crochet hook or knitting needles in over thirty years! I have been able to share my skills and make many new friends.
Of course there is a limit to how many bags and scarves etc. that one person needs so I have branched out and now sell on-line on Folksy as InfinityCrafts in the UK on Etsy as DiversityCrafts worldwide and on Ebay. I have had an amazing number of sales there and some really encouraging reviews.
I make and replace as I sell. Sometimes it is hard to keep up! To be honest there is little profit to be made from handmade goods, but it gives me an excuse to keep busy doing something I love...
I designed a crochet cloche hat and bucket bag of my own which can be seen in 'My Projects'. Thanks to the encouraging response I received I have now written- up both patterns for sale and added a further two..another on the way.
