Shell's Profile

About

Mother and I have been crafters since 1989, mainly making doilies. My mother is 83 years old. Her mother taught her to crochet when she was about 7 with binder twine because this was the Depression and that's what was available to learn with. In 1991 she suffered a light stroke and thought she would not be able to crochet any more but she has a daughter (me) that was determined that she would so it became part of therapy to recover. And the results show in this shop! She still crochets' everyday and it keeps her sharp. And her mother was the one to teach me, her granddaughter at about the same age. Although I learned with crochet thread! We do a wide variety of crafting to supplement her income . We pride ourselves on quality and make our designs to last forever with good care. We hope that you will love our work as much as we love creating it! The woman in the profile picture is my mother Lorraine.
