Ideas Magazine, the South African craft and lifestyle magazine, mentioned me in their June 2013 issue! I had no idea! Pun intended. (Ideas also listed this blog as one of their 14 favourite blogs & websites in March 2012.)
This time my name appears because I helped out Christelle of Haak-en-Stekie to set up the Afrikaans crochet page (now group) Ons Hekel (meaning We Crochet) on Facebook in 2011. You can read the whole story in this four page article. Crochet is HUGE in South Africa, and I think that’s due, in no small part, to the hard work of Christelle and OnsHekel.
Well done Christelle! If I am ever in Gauteng, I would love to meet you and the other Craft Share girls in person. It seems wrong that magazines are doing articles about us and we have never met, but that’s the power of crochet. Yarn and hook will bind us together.
What a lovely article!
Congratulations with the beautiful feature to all involved!
Congrats again!! How exciting!
I was lucky enough to be at the shoot. Short hair, dark top. Was a fun, lovely morning.
Isn’t it sweet? I was going to let you know once it appeared – forgot you get Ideas electronically!
We’ll meet up at some stage. I met Ansie, who wrote the article, when she was here for a few days from Dubai, and now she’s in Aus. So maybe…next time in London?!
Congratulations. You are becoming a celeb in your own right. 🙂
Lovely article, in a magazine I have been following since inception!! I live in Fourways Gauteng and have crocheted since I was 10.

That sounds like something from a fortune cookie, but I take it! 🙂
