Hi, My name is Diana, I am a Primary teacher turned crochet addict
I opened my shop – The Crochet Chain in 2010, it was open for 4 years, and during that time I honed my crochet skills, teaching crochet (and a bit of knitting) to many, many people. I started designing, and found that I like to make patterns that are easy to follow, and that use a minimum of sewing up!
I have designed for Women’s Weekly, DMC, King Cole and Lets Knit! This experience has helped me to hone my designing skills, but I now prefer to sell my patterns directly to my lovely customers!
I sell my designs and kits online on my own website, on Ravelry, and at Shows. I run courses at Crates of Wool in Ware, and Missenden Abbey in Buckinghamshire, workshops at Shows with my favourite being Ally Pally.
I run two social groups locally, and have a video podcast on Youtube!
When not designing or podcasting, I can be found at many of the wool shows around the country, either exhibiting or visiting!
Along with my friend Kate, I run the Waltham Abbey Wool Show, and have started planning our 7th Show on the 19th January 2020
