About

Designer's Biography

At an early age Sandra remembers coming across a little “Learn How Book” that included crochet. After forming a hook out of heavy wire from her fathers’ tool chest, she began to follow the instructions. It was then that her love for crochet began to develop.

Although crocheting took a back seat to a busy life, Sandra’s interest in the art of crochet has always remained. Little did she know where this would lead to down the road.

In 2007, after suffering a major illness, Sandra’s husband became disabled, which required her to stay home to care for him. In doing so, it gave her the opportunity to reignite her passion for crochet; creating new designs and mixing them with beautiful fabrics, beads and other elements. She was then encouraged by family and friends to take her skills as a former Technical Writer to designing, editing and selling her original crochet patterns under the name Silk Orchid Gallery.

In 2010 she enrolled in the “CGOA Master of Advanced Crochet Stitches and Techniques” and received her Master’s certificate and pin. This achievement, along with many inspiring words from customers gave her the confidence to continue expanding her crochet designs.

When asked does she ever get bored crocheting, Sandra quickly replies; “I feel as though I’m a late comer to the industry. With such a rich past history to explore; with many new techniques to learn and with so many designs swirling in my head, crocheting will always remain exciting, fresh and new and a whole lot of fun!”
