Heritage Heartcraft

~Heritage Heartcraft, heirloom quality thread crochet by Cara Louise Reitbauer~I have been crocheting since about 1974 at age 8 when my mother taught me with regular yarn and larger crochet hooks. A year or so later, she found a bag that had been her mother's which contained some gorgeous doilies her mother had made, along with some skinny crochet thread and some impossibly small steel crochet hooks.I fell in love on the spot, created my very first doily without any pattern by copying one of hers, using her hooks and her thread. I have been designing and crafting small articles such as doilies, coasters, snowflakes and angels ever since! (Although I do confess to using patterns too!) Every time I make something I feel a kinship with the grandmother I was never able to meet, and so her spirit is alive in me- all these years later, and still use her hooks, which are now over 60 years old!I've got sites all over the web!Patterns-http://www.ravelry.com/designers/heritage-heartcrafthttp://www.craftsy.com/user/173678/pattern-storeCustom Orders-http://HeritageHeartcraft.etsy.comhttp://HeritageHeartcraft.storenvy.com/http://www.zibbet.com/CaraLouiseCrochetFacebook-https://www.facebook.com/HeritageHeartcraftWebsite-http://HeritageHeartcraft.comPinterest-http://www.pinterest.com/CaraLReitbauer/heritage-heartcraftHeritage Heartcraft is a proud member of the Mad Mad Makers network: ~Members of the Mad Mad Makers network are dedicated to not only growing their own handcrafted businesses, but also to helping their fellow community members grow theirs.~Each member is also committed to the true principle of handcrafting- meaning to fashion or make by hand or chiefly by hand processes rather than machine made, being homegrown and homemade.
