Hi Crafters!!!My name is Barbara Read and love crocheting!!!! I am glad I found this shop and I also list on many other websites. I love living in Reno, NV and Lake Tahoe is not far and we love to go to the mountains. I love riding my motorcycle on the open road with my husband. Crocheting is my favorite hobby. I got started in crocheting back when I was pregnant with my 2nd child and haven't put it down yet. That was 37 years ago....... It helps me relax and I love designing new things with my own unique style. My best creations come when I am by myself even though I love spending time with my family too. Since I started working a Joann Fabric and Craft store I am also wanting to venture out in other crafts and have many ideas to work with. All my crochet patterns that I have listed are my original designs with my own unique style. Made with love and care I enjoy designing new creations. I have had a great deal of positive feedback about my patterns and finished items that I also sell. I love that I have regular customers who come back for time and time again for custom orders. My quality of my products speaks for itself.
