Hi! I’m Sonya, the owner of Blackstone Designs. I live in Maine with my husband and 3 children. I learned to crochet in early 2000 and started designing at the end of 2012. I consider myself to be a design dabbler, creating things from toys to accessories, but I find the most joy in designing clothing. My favorite yarns to work with are plant based or anything with shimmer; I’m a total sucker for glitter yarns! I have been a designer in several crochet competitions and my designs have been featured in various online and print publications. I hope to have many more in the future! Really, I just love to get creative! I have been into crafts since I was a young kid, making clothes for my Barbies or Friendship Bracelets, so when I'm not wrapped up in yarn loveliness, I'm usually doing another crafty activity.
