Annette West's Profile

About

Thank you for visiting my shop.
I am an RN. I used to work at a Cancer Center giving Chemo treatments. Many of my patients would bring knitting or crocheting to do while getting their treatment. Some of the treatments took all day. I got interested in the crocheting. I had learned how to make the different stitches from my mother when I was a child. But I didn't know how to put them together to make a piece. I got a book and learned how to read a pattern. And so I learned to crochet. I did get some good tips from my patients too. Now that I am not working anymore I decided to sell some of my work on Etsy. I hope you will enjoy them.
I also add some sewn baby and toddler clothing to my shop occasional. I have been sewing most of my life. I started making some of my own clothes when I was 10, making doll clothes before that. My mother sewed for other people and she taught her 3 daughters to sew also…

10% of all my sales wil be donated to St Jude Children's Research Hospital.
I have now decided to venture into adding some women's crochet apparel to my shop.
