Hookey is the social site for the Crochet Liberation Front (CLF), which was created by Laurie Wheeler, aka the Fearless Leader. The CLF “is designed to educate, inform and promote all levels of crochet lovers!” Laurie describes Hookey as “a home for dyed in the wool crochet lovers. Come play, talk shop, and run with hooks!”
Please take time to visit Hookey and NeedleArtists and Crafters during NatCroMo, and let them know that you heard about them from This Is Crochet.
NeedleArtists and Crafters

It’s mission is to “help needle artists and crafters earn sustainable incomes from their hand crafts through teaching, coaching, sales, and promotion.” NAC was founded by Andrea Fields. She is a talented dollmaker and skilled in several other arts and crafts. Her value statement for NAC is “filling hearts, homes and minds with visions of hand made beauty, comfort, and love. (The kind of love that keeps hearts anchored at home).”
Please visit NAC and see the work of all the extremely talented members.
One of the activities that the Crochet Guild of America suggests for this month is to make new crochet friends so I want to say a quick thank you to everyone who has been sending me tweets and DMs with links to your crochet projects. I love it when we share.
This is the reason why I am really loving Pinterest. For those of you who have not made it there yet, we are sharing our projects and lots of other things that we find fun and interesting.
Keeping with the spirit of sharing, in the next two posts I will showcase two places online where we can continue to celebrate and share the crochet love. Until then, take care.
