Welcome to the other side of Merrie Moore Designs! I wanted to take the time and tell you a bit about me. As you probably noticed, I do more than just crochet. I am a graphic designer, hand letterer, sign maker and love all crafts. It wasn't until after my mom passed away suddenly that I picked up the crochet hooks to keep my mind on something other than losing her. I can tell you that crochet has helped a TON with the loss and I have been asked by a few people to show them what I know about crochet. I am in no way an expert but I have been crocheting for about 7 years now and I am still learning.
In this section of my site I will start with the basics of crochet and get into the more advanced stitches and such as time goes on. The crochet section of my site is a way for me to teach and share my experience with you and also share stories, patterns, tips and projects.
I am very thankful that I did pick up those hooks and stuck with it, even though it was hard at first. Crochet has not only helped me with the loss of my mom, it has helped me learn to slow down and has helped tremendously with anxiety. Learning any new craft can be frustrating, just remember that when you do get overwhelmed to put your work down, take a walk, bike ride, read or whatever...and come back later. This makes things much easier on you and you won't be throwing crochet hooks out of frustration. Lol!
I am available for questions, comments so head over to the contact page and send me a message. I try to answer them as soon as I can!
Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to check back after the first of the year when we get started with the first class!
Hey there! Welcome to Merrie Moore Designs! In this section I plan to create a beginning class or classes on how to crochet. I will also share new patterns and answer any questions.
