Many of you are already familiar with our newest crochet expert, Ellen Gormley. We feel very lucky that she has joined us. She has been crocheting since she was about 10 years old, but didn’t begin her design career until 2004 when she began staying home with her kids. She stitched more than 80 afghans before becoming a full-time crafter who “gets paid to play with yarn!” Within the crochet community, Ellen Gormley is particularly well-known for her stylish bead crochet and join-as-you-go crochet and motif designs. Ellen has more than 200 designs including garments, bags and accessories and home decor.
Ellen’s designs have been published in numerous crochet magazines, and she has written two books. She has recently completed a new online class, Crocheting With Beads.
