People keep asking me what it is about the name of my design Flower of Cebu. This is my answer just in case you want to know too:
I have dear Philippine friends living in the area of Cebu. Cebu (Queen of the South) is a providence in the Philippines which was also hit hard by taifun Haiyan.
They share everything they have with people who still suffer the consequences of the Taifun. They took in widows and orphans to live with them, distribute school material,help with medicine, rebuilt houses, dig wells..... you name it. I wanted to honor them with this design ). They are like a beautiful flower in midst of hardship.....
A good part of the sales of this pattern will go to support what they are doing...

C. Burkhard on craftsy.com

Fiber related arts have a long tradition in my family. As I child I was surrounded by knitting/crocheting aunts and my grandmother always dreamed about having her own yarn shop.

Moving from Switzerland to the US several years ago I rediscovered these roots and became a not only a Lismi, a person who knits in Swiss German, but a designer and fiber enthusiast.
