About

How VillaYarnDesigns came about.

My story begins like so many others that have a crochet shop. Taught by my Grandmother when I was a little girl, made the occasional afghan, sweater, hat for every family member, bought yarn I loved and built up a stash. Then I heard about Etsy! Wow, I have not looked back.

I started with a few baby hats and then found myself more excited about designing and making accessories such as scarves and hats. I slowly added items one by one and took orders here and there. And then it just happened one weekend. I will never forget it. It was early September, 2012 on a Saturday night. My husband and I were watching a movie, and I, of course, was crocheting as well. We kept hearing the computer email alert going off - one after another. Curious, I went to the computer to see what was going on. I was stunned. There must have been 20 emails alerting me that I had an Etsy sale. When I checked my Etsy activity, there they all were - one sale after another of my original oatmeal button scarf. Someone had pinned my item on Pinterest, and it just kept going.

This was the beginning of operating a serious business. I have not stopped since. I have also found great satisfaction in writing some of my own crochet patterns which I now sell here on Etsy and many other sites.

What a joy to wake up each morning excited to get to work. I am fortunate to have a husband that supports what I do and takes part in some of work such as shipping and shopping for my supplies. Without his help, I would never have been able to keep up with VillaYarnDesign's growth.

I hope you enjoy browsing through my listings and invite you to contact me if you have any questions or comments

    My love of crocheting and knitting goes back to childhood. Each and every piece I make or design is as exciting as the very first piece made. I know it shows in my work and hope I'll continue to wow my customers. I'll be doing this for a long time to come.
