I learned to crochet as a child, and fell hopelessly in love with thread crochet shortly thereafter. To this day, I find the process magical. I love how the thread feels, as it slides between my fingers. I love to watch the hook flash in and out, creating tiny patterns of knots. And most of all, I love watching those patterns turn into the curve of a petal, the wing of a butterfly, or the crystalline point of a snowflake.
Caitlin Sainio Designs began in 2009 as an excuse to buy more thread and make more lace. Even as it's grown into a successful business, the core mission is the same: it's a place to indulge -- and to share -- my fascination with crochet, with geometry, and with nature.
