Dana's Profile

About

My name is Dana, and I have OCD (Obsessive Crocheting Disorder).

I’m a collector of yarns, fibers and fabrics and an appreciator of color and texture... a lover of pattern and pile. Oh who am I kidding? I’m a hoarder and a packrat, and I’ve amassed collections of yarn, fiber and fabrics so huge, I’ll never be able to use it all. Oh, I forgot to mention the other stockpiles.... buttons, ribbons, beads, clay, recyclables, etc. that have found their way into my home studio (and dare I say, it's totally organized..that is another story..another obsession!). It's all good though..(crocheting and crafting keep me out of trouble. :) However, I do think I've passed the OCD gene to my 13 year old and together we have a sister store here on Etsy called HipChicksDesign.

I've been crocheting for quite some time and, about 5…

I've been crocheting for quite some time and, about 5 years ago, decided to share some of my patterns with the world. I'm not much of a rule follower (remember I mentioned staying out of trouble?) and I prefer to create my own designs and patterns in a way that expresses my funky ,quirky, (and quite often) "dorky" personality. I often get inspired by
a color, pattern or texture.... then I begin spending hours daydreaming about how to pull it all together into a cute design.

So...if you've got any comments (good or bad, lol) pop me a convo! I'd love to hear from you! I really, really enjoy custom orders too!!!

A bit about my crochet pattern refund policy....
If you've purchased a crochet pattern(s) thinking it was for the finished item let me explain to you why I do not offer refunds. When your payment is received (for a crochet pattern) I email the pattern to you as soon as very possible (usually within 12 hours). Once you open the email with the pattern attached you discover you purchased the item in error..thinking it was the finished product and pop me an email telling me so. Since I have already completed the transaction, by sending your order, I therefore, cannot refund your money or I'd be giving my hard work away for free...that is why it is very important to read each and every listing from any seller very carefully. Thank you.
