Crochet Designer Feature:
Question: Who are you? Tell me about yourself.
Hi My name is Sandra I am 61 years old, married , mom of three amazing ladies and grandma of one little man! I live in beautiful Haifa in the north of Israel near the Mediterranean sea. For many years I worked and owned a “ find your next job” agency helping people find their next chapter in the work world. In the last years I was a mental health rehabilitator and again helping people who struggle with mental health issues find their way back to the work place. Now I am a full time crochet designer and small biz owner and I love it!
Question: How did you learn how to crochet? How long have you been crocheting?
I learned to crochet at the age of 7 like many of us! My mom taught me, she is and was a very crafty person and I stuck with crochet for most of my life! It always helped me in difficult times and it was a great stress reliever even as a soldier when I was 18!
Question: Do you have any tips for new crocheters? Any guidance to make them successful at a new hobby?
I would say just start! Do not feel you need to be perfect or your crochet needs to be just straight. It is a process like most things in life. But it brings so much joy it is worth it! Grab a hook and yarn and make a chain – it will change your life for the better.
Question: What do you enjoy crocheting the most?
I am a quick, simple project lover! I get bored with big long rows so my favorites are shawls and scarves and my so versatile and customizable tops, I also love projects for the home,
Question: What else are you passionate about (other than crochet)?
I love to travel the world and we are very fortunate to be able to do that, so exploring new countries and cities , cultures and food is my favorite! I also love to cook and hate to bake , so you will find me in the kitchen trying a new vegan recipe for my youngest.
Question: What prompted you to start designing?
Covid 19 started my designing journey! I decided like many others in the world to start a small biz and crochet was the obvious path for me.
Question: How long have you been designing and where do you publish your patterns?
I have been designing for the past 3 years . You can find my patterns on Ravelry and on my Blog.
Question: What drives you to create? Where do you find inspiration for your designs?
I can find inspiration anywhere, in my travels ( I have a scarf inspired by the pavement on a street in Turin Italy), on a restaurant, Pinterest, the top 20 on Ravelry, magazines, nature I mostly sit down to crochet in the evenings, so whatever went down that day floats in my mind.
Question: What do you enjoy designing the most?
I love a good Shawl.
Question: What tips would you give to someone interested in designing and blogging?
Learn the basics, It is important to have the right base on everything we do in life and then put our personality in. Be professional and be yourself.
Question: What goals have you set for yourself for the future?
I want to teach as many women the joy of crochet and how it brings so much peace in life! Especially women with mental health struggles as I know the benefits and amazing new lights in the tunnel crochet can provide.

Salena Baca , Tinna Þórudóttir Þorvaldar, Marie Castro” Mariana Carvalho, Naranjalima tejidos.
