How My Passion for Crochet Gave Birth to CTDA Design?

In the early years of my life, I remember being around my mother, grandma, aunts and older sister sewing, embroidering or crocheting. From back memories, I remember being around yarn, threat, fabric, scissors and needles- (I am now very grateful to my mom, grandmas, and aunts for letting me be part of this beautiful experience!);

However, even though I was around what I described above, and contrary to my sisters who are very into arts and crafts, I never paid close attention to those activities. Sometimes I was attracted to them, but most of the time I was busy with something else. I was extremely "busy" with school and later on preparing myself in to a profession. I had worked for many years in the Education and Social Work areas. I had never ever before considered crochet an activity that I want to do, or even more, I thought that I did not have the “talent” to do handmade accessories. I thought that I did not have the "Artistic" skills to create art or crafts with my own hands.

Couple of years ago, that idea changed completely. I went to my hometown for a very special occasion and visited my family and friends in the country side. To my surprise, one of our family’s friends was doing and selling crochet accessories. I was touched by the uniqueness of those delicate handmade accessories. I purchased some items from her to bring as gifts to my family relatives and friends back home. Meanwhile, my friend was doing more and more handmade crochet items while she was talking to me and other family members. It caught my eyes how peaceful and relaxing the activity seemed to be. Somehow, I asked her to teach me and I end up learning crochet from her!

Still to this pointing in time, it remains as a “mystery” to me the way I started doing Crochet. I think I was attracted by the Peace and Joy I felt when I first grabbed the thread and the crochet hook. What I know for sure now is that, I am eternally grateful for being in the right place at the right moment and to have the opportunity to learn this beautiful activity called Crochet!

From that experience, I have not stopped doing crochet. Crochet has become part of my life!!

With the help of my older sister, who is an expert in the Arts of Handmade accessories, I was able to practice more and more. Then on my own, and with the guidance of my husband, who is a professional designer, I had created and still in the process of creating my own style of Handmade Crochet techniques.

Learning and practicing Crochet has been one of the most beautiful Gifts I have ever received,

Crochet has given me so much joy and peace. It has helped me to cope with many difficulties in the last couple years. Crochet has helped me to reduce my stress level to the point that I feel extremely calm and peaceful around the turmoil of every difficult moments that I have encountered in my life for the past years.


I practice "Crochet Therapy" every night to release the day's tension and stress before I go to bed. It is a wonderful way to relax and quiet the body, the mind and the spirit!

Crochet is one of my favorite Passion, which helps to heal myself and, at the same time, it helps me to create very special, delicate and unique gifts for my loved ones, which are made with my own hands!!!
