A team of crocheters from across the pond

A team of millennial crocheters here to dispel the myths of crochet being for old ladies.

Jess learned to crochet when she was 16, and her hobby really took of while she was in university as she would sell crocheted items to earn pocket money. It wasn't until 2018 that she became confident enough to write her own patterns. Over the years she has drawn inspiration from fast fashion, necessity and eventually from film and animation as she delved into crochet cosplay and made it her own.

The current manager and head crocheter is Jess. She grew up in Cornwall (UK) and moved to France until 2006 and moved again to Iceland in 2020. She currently works as a software engineer for a computer game company.
Second in command is Emma-Justine. She’s from Norwalk, CT (US), and met Jess when she came to Toulouse to study wine. She hops to and fro the Atlantic every now and again to visit but no longer has time to contribute much to the blog or shop.
Maxime, Jess’ boyfriend, is now also a member of the Transatlantic Crochet team after learning to crochet in 2019. He is a French-Norman computer nerd and lives with Jess in Iceland.
