Straight From the HeART – Nibbles of Encouragement




 ‘I love that you twist a little yarn in the right direction, and it creates something.’

~ Pearl Sumpter

‘I crochet as I don’t drink anymore.

I make things to giveaway including test items.’

 ~ Colleen Burwell


“Had a friend teach me 15 years ago when my husband left for another woman. As she started to show me I had a flash back to my mom teaching me when I was 8 or 9 years old. (She passed away when I was 9.) Continued for years, then had to stop when my arthritis got bad. Husband left for another woman a second and final time. Friends encouraged me to start again.

I have and am so incredibly happy I did.

It has given me joy and comfort.’

‘crochet is therapy’

~ Eileen Jones
