Happy New Year 2014

As we ring out the old, I wanted to take the time to show my appreciation for EVERYONE who follows this blog and supports my crochet design work!

In 2013 I am THANKFUL for the SUPPORT of:
  • My loyal blog readers,
  • ALL the patrons of my crochet shops,
  • My incredible daughter and business partner, Gina, who photographs all my crochet work beautifully and gives me wonderful advice!
  • My wonderful daughters Cristina and Angela, who constantly advise me during the design process of Jocelyn Designs and THEN model all the new crochet designs!
  • My son, Michael, who helped me develop new math templates for sizing my wearable patterns,
  • My lovely little model, for whom I named The Danica Collection!
  • My fellow designers in the crochet and knit industry, who continually uplift me with their advice and creativity,
  • Crochet magazine publishers who support my design business,
  • Crochet book publishers who provide so many great books to my readers,
  • Organizations like Crochet Guild of America (CGOA), The National Needlearts Association (TNNA), The Craft and Hobby Association (CHA), Crochetville (crochetville.com)
  • My three WONDERFUL crochet stitchers and pattern checkers, Kristine, Shilo and Wendy,
  • One of the BEST Tech Editors in the business, Kristine Mullen!
  • My wonderful family and husband, Gino, without whom none of this would be possible! 
2013 was an incredible year for me because:
  • I created a new shop, Jocelyn Designs, for contemporary crochet accessories.
  • I added 2 wonderful stitchers and pattern checkers and hit the jackpot!
  • I designed and crocheted LOTS of new crochet photography props for my daughter, Gina.
  • I increased the readership of my blog.
  • I gave away LOTS of brand new crochet books to my readers! (thank you, publishers!)
  • Cute Crochet got a partial makeover; more to come.
  • I nearly doubled my self publishing sales from last year.
  • I crossed so MANY projects off my To-Do List!
Over the past year, I have truly made CROCHET my full time job yet again!

And I can’t thank ALL of you enough!

Look for LOTS of good things in 2014!

Pin It!
