MY HISTORY

About thirty years ago, a 15-year-old girl, passing in front of a newsstand, noticed newspapers that reported images of some hand-made works, with yarns. That girl approached, took the magazine and began to leaf through it, fascinated by those weaves, by those geometric shapes, which skilled female hands had created.

She fell in love instantly!

She saw the price of the magazine, rummaged in pockets jeans, found 2.300 lire, paid and took the magazine at home.
She spent hours and hours leafing through it, trying to understand what those graphic designs were so articulated, how to read them, how and where to learn what she discovered to be the crochet art.

The grandmother had taught her to knit, because she knew to do it, but now she wanted to find someone who could teach her crochet art.

And so, she turned to the haberdashery of the town where, with her mom, she had bought some things for sewing over the years.

The shop owner had always been very kind, so that girl, even if a little shy, and knowing that the lady often worked to knit, took courage in four hands and asked her if she knew also work the crochet art. When she replied it was a nice "yes" smile, she asked her if she could teach her.

And so... one afternoon, that fifteen-year-old girl entered in the store and, next to that lady and thanks to her teachings, began her journey in this wonderful world made of crochet hooks, yarns, techniques, designs, patterns, creativity, originality, beauty, charm, ancient taste, wisdom, art: crochet.

But life had foreseen something else for that girl: a bit of moving around Italy, other jobs, a family, but always accompanied by those beautiful memories and a passion that yes, she had to put aside, but that it had never turned off.
So, as soon as she could, she would hook up, doing and undoing creations she'd made over the years... like Penelope :)

After thirty years, that girl returned to the shop, which in the meantime had moved a little further, entered and found the same lady.

Both were a little older than they had left.

The girl reminded her who she was, but even if the lady couldn't remember, she thanked her again, telling her how her patience, her love for the work she was doing, her sweetness, her enthusiasm, her smiles, her availability and her time had taught her so much.

And that girl, now 45-here-old, told her all this with tears in her eyes.

That girl was me.

MY VALUES

1. Go back to dreaming like the girl you were.
2. A happy woman lives the present but never forgets her past.
3. Freedom is being able to decide to be.
4. Remember who we were to understand who we are.
5. The family is like a tree: strong, if it has strong roots.
6. Surround yourself with positive people, they will help you break down walls.
7. In being yourself, give your best part.
8. Perfection exists only in the magic of nature.
9. Give a hug, it's worth a thousand words.
10. Educate others, respecting themselves first.
