I am the owner and designer for Loess Hills Creative Crochet, located near the beautiful Loess Hills just North of Council Bluffs, Iowa. I semi-retired from teaching in 2009. In 2010 I started designing crochet patterns when I couldn't find an Aran style afghan pattern that I liked so I designed my own. I have been designing ever since. Teaching is my passion and I still teach classes part time and online for several colleges. You will also find me teaching crochet to anyone with an interest to learn. I am certified to teach crochet through the Craft Yarn Council's Certified Teachers Program and have taught crochet for Michael's Craft Store in Sioux City, Iowa. In the fall of 2010 I founded the Missouri Valley Needle Arts Group. We meet on the first and third Friday of the month at the Missouri Valley Public Library from 1 to 3 PM. Everyone that enjoys needle arts is invited to attend. There is no charge. In February of 2012 I received the status of Professional Member of the CGOA which basically means I'm making some part of my living from crochet. ( a very small part I might add). Primarily I self publish my crochet patterns but I was honored to have one of my patterns published in the Winter issue 2011,of Quick and Easy Crochet Magazine. I maintain a Ravelry Store which I hope you will visit
