Back in February attended the Afro Stitch Conference here in Atlanta. I was invited by the Awesome Gina-Renay. I’m glad I attended. I met crocheters and wannabee crocheters of all ages. There was even one family that had three generations.
The panelist were Afya Ibomu, Tara Baker, Wendy Jones, and Todd Pasquale. They freely and graciously shared the hows and whys of starting their crochet businesses, and answered questions. Lot’s of good info.
Gina-Renay also spoke on her experiences as a crochet fashion designer, and she presented a mini-fashion show featuring a few of her designs.
I was able to help three little girls (sisters) learn how to begin crocheting. By the end of the day, they all had long chains.
I hope there will be another conference.
