Boho styled Crochet fashion !

Marathiás, Greece

Announcement    Crochet Fashion treasuries can be found in my little shop here on ETSY. They are all hand made and designed by myself in a small village by the sea called Marathias Efpaliou in Greece !
I have been crocheting for 40 years and have taught crochet techniques in a private school in Chalkidiki for 4 years.
I use cotton yarns with a touch of acrylic so that my items do not lose their shape while worn .
I love combining colours and playing with different stiches.
Eastern civilisation inspires me continuously so Boho styled items are my favourites.

Most of my corchet pieces are CUSTOM ORDERS... So you can be sure to have a unique piece made just for you and nobody else! Just let me know your likes.
Even when I am asked to make a copy , I make sure that by changing little things it will be unique and special and will not be an exact copy on purpose.

I am happy to show you some pieces of my work here on Etsy.

I hope you enjoy your visit here and hope you come back often to check on new items.

If you have any questions or ideas or even advice,I will be happy to hear from you as long as you write to me here or to my e-mail address (stamatia_th@hotmail.com).

Thank you again... and enjoy your visit...

In love with Yarns

I have been in love with yarns all my life...so I crochet and knit since I was eight years old.
I like to try different ideas that come to my head but the truth is that unique items seem to interest no one. So I decided to stay with some of my designs and try to bring them to you through etsy.
In the beggining I thought it would be very hard to manage a page on the internet and keep it up to date since I had never done something like that before and to tell you the truth I am not that much into modern technology...
I feel that I can design and create.. find materials and ideas but the internet was too much for me.
But I tried....
I like using all kinds of yarns except 100% acrylic and nylon.... I prefer natural fibers and yarns and I love colors...
Clothes ,handbags, jewlery, accessories... all handmade by me and all designed by the ideas in my head and the look around me.
Enjoy

Caring for your items bought.
Please keep in mind that handmade items need to be treated kindly and with special care. Here are some tips for you to enjoy them for a long time:

When washed please HANDWASH only. Do not dry in the sun since the colours could be faded no matter how well the yarn is.. since my yarns are mostly pure cotton or pure wool.
Do not DRY IN MACHINE.

If you have any questions I would be more than happy to help out.
