My sister and my mum crochet, too

And here is their shop on Dawanda....about time to promote them, LOL
BTW, my grandpa was a taylor (someone who actually went through apprenticeship and knew how to handsew and then later machine sew men's suits) and my grandmother was a seamstress who made dresses and skirts for the farmer wives in trade for eggs and meat during the post WW2 years. My mother was very skilled in knitting and still does crochet work and embroidery. My dad was a shoemaker (leather shoes made from scratch) until this craft was not profitable anymore with shoe factories selling for less. And then there are my sister Andrea and I, well we do a bit of everything. But crochet is still our #1 passion.
