About

A Life Time of Crochet

I learned to crochet from my Grandma and my Mom when I was still in elementary school. Grandma made doilies and Mom made afghans. I took these skills a step further to crocheting wearable items. When scarves became popular, I was in my element, crocheting one after the other.

Later, the idea of re-creating some of my Grandmother's delicate lacy crocheted items rooted in that creative part of my brain. I practiced working with thread until I mastered techniques for crocheting with steel hooks. Thus began the crocheted vintage pot holder phase of my life.

Another passion has always been dolls. As a doll collector, I found myself attracted to frilly dresses and ruffled gowns. This passion naturally morphed into the creation of Victorian dresses to fit 11 1/2" fashion dolls.

I love working with cotton threads and yarns, along with other natural fibers such as wool, bamboo and silk. They are softer and work up much prettier than acrylic yarns.

Welcome to Chesapeake Bay Crochet! My name is Karen and I crochet for fun, for profit, for other people. Crochet is a creative outlet for my creative mind. Each piece I create, whether from a pattern or from within, is a unique piece of art. I use only my fingers, yarn and a crochet hook to create these items. Nothing is ever manufactured by a machine.

I started crocheting when I was very young--about 8 or 9. My grandmother and mother both taught me this incredible art form and I have grown to love crochet more than knitting, embroidery, sewing, painting or any other hand craft.

Crochet is relaxing and my method for tuning out the world and it's insanity. Crochet is ordered, structured and beautiful.

Additional information:
Each piece is hand-made and very occasionally a stitch may be less than perfect. This is part of the overall beauty of a hand-made piece and is not considered damage. While every effort it made to create a perfect piece, sometimes a "boggled" stitch may get through the inspection process. A custom piece cannot be returned if a customer discovers a missed stitch or other minor flaw on their piece.
*Damage to a piece is considered, but not limited to, obvious tears, rips, breaks, disfigurement (as in arriving with the box smashed and the piece ran over by a large truck), burned, melted (as in a meteor striking the postal service truck or the postal service truck becoming the victim of an explosion, either accidental or deliberate) dismembered (as in torn apart my an angry bear), gunshot holes or stab wounds.
